  1. how do I stop defrag running randomly and unscheduled windows 10


    I am trying to reduce memory use and wear to my HDD, and windows 10 pro 64bit keep running random processes, even when the schedule is disabled. The latest is defrag, which runs randomly and unscheduled. I have read the Q&A here and the concensus is to disable it in the registry, which is what I have done. My questions are will defrag work on command with the registry entry disabled and does it effect anything else. If I want to run it by changing the 'no' to 'yes' in the registry every time I use it, is there another way to stop it running randomly?

    :)

  2. Windows Defrag

    When running defrag, there is a drive listing for Windows RE Tools. It shows as a solid state drive and that it has never been defragged. It will not optimize. Clicking on it does nothing. Any suggestions?

    Windows 10. Cannot run Defrag

    Hi,

    Thank you for your response. It is possible that you received the error
    The Task Scheduler service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs
    due to corrupted system files. To assist you better, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Which build and version of Windows are you using?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you tried booting up your computer in Safe Mode by clicking on this
    link. Check if you're able to run defrag.

    If it worked, we also recommend that you follow the steps in this article on how to perform clean boot.
    This will help eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows 10.

    Note: Please go through the section: How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot of the Kb article to boot the computer in normal
    startup after fixing the issue.


    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    how do I stop defrag running randomly and unscheduled windows 10

    Windows 10 Defrag

    Having a similar issue have tried running optimization ansd ran fine on the c drive but when to try and run on the system potion it goes to pass 1 then 2 in seconds and comes back 100 % fragmented but defraged the c drive cleanly ??

    Have gone thru this post and SFC ran clean no errors, checked services.msc and listed itemsd are on automatic but disk defragmenter was not listed there ?? The optimization schedule is set for automatic weekly, but probably is not running since I do not
    leave my pc on. My next step would be the windows performance recorder , but before go another step is it possible that this portion was not ment to be defrag ?? Or just turn off the auto schedule and would run ??

    This is being done to resolve another issue which is in another post when boot up on the first try pc locks up on the black screen with the blue window, when reboot again it starts up correctly, also in sesolution have tried running chdk C:/r and when get
    to 10% complete it just runs for hours, (2 hours). So thought the defrg would help solve some of these 2 issues !!

    Go figure 2 step to fix anther and one issue in each step !!

    Any further suggestions ??
