    Project: Which Scheduled Tasks can be Disabled WITHOUT Drastic Impact.


    The idea of this Project is to sqeeze a little bit more performance from the OS.

    I have Extracted the Scheduled Tasks and Status information for MY OS seperated into the following categories . . .

    Code:
    
    Disabled =  37
    Ready    = 140
    Running  =   4
    Queued   =   1
    Total    = 182

    ALL of the ouput is sorted by TaskName for easier reference.

    Disabled:

    Code:
    
    PS C:\Windows\System32> (Get-ScheduledTask | ? {$_.State -like 'Disabled'} | Measure-Object).Count
    
    37
    
    PS C:\Windows\System32> Get-ScheduledTask | ? {$_.State -like 'Disabled'} | Sort-Object TaskName | Format-Table -AutoSize
    
    TaskPath                                                               TaskName                                                                      State

    UPDATE:

    This is by NO means near completion, but I thought that I would update the thread with what are the Potential Scheduled Tasks to be Disabled.

    In the list below, you will see the following . . .

    • ? = Means further investigation is required.
    • Status: = The CURRENT UNCHANGED Status of the Scheduled Task.
    • Description: = The DESCRIPTION of the Scheduled Task.
    • Notes: = Additional Information.
    • xxx = Information NOT yet investigated.

    Code:

    There is very little information on the web about which Windows tasks are safe to disable. A good starting point is this site, which has pretty good descriptions of what many tasks do.

    I ended up disabling about 65% of the more than 100 tasks I have on my Windows 10 install. Also, although I disabled the defrag command as Paul Black did, I created a subsitute task to correctly trim my SSD drives once a month with the command line: defrag x: /L, where "x" is the drive you want to trim.

    Finally, I downloaded and installed PAEXEC instead of using the internal Windows utility (schtasks.exe) for enabling or disabling scheduled tasks, because schtasks.exe will often not allow you to disable hidden or locked tasks because of permissions issues..

    Great project! I've thought for a while now that Windows' default system tasks are out of control. Once I started poking around through the task history, I was blown away by how busy-bee they were firing behind the scenes, constantly.

    I realize this isn't a bad thing by default, but let's just say that MS hasn't won many points in recent years with resource efficiency.

    It was my understanding that Windows 10 now knows to trim SSD's with the defrag tool instead of old-school defragging. Is this not the case? Looking at W10's "ScheduledDefrag" task (accessible from the "Tools"-> "Defrag/Optimize" dialog from any drive's context menu, it uses the switch "/O", to perform the proper optimization for each media type.

    Would this be a different procedure/outcome than the "/L" switch?

    @Coldblackice. Sorry for the late reply. For anyone else watching, SSD drives should NOT be defragged, only trimmed. Maybe Microsoft has fixed this glitch, which first appeared in Windows 8 I believe, but I am not certain. Hence, to be safe I always use the trim command instead

    Has anyone encountered this issue relating to the Task Scheduler
    \Microsoft\Windows\PushToInstall\ Registration Ready ?

    I have noticed that if this task is enabled then on Windows 10 system startup. I get this Windows Install Push Service to trigger as Starting!
    Project: Which Scheduled Tasks can be Disabled WITHOUT Drastic Impact.-pushtoinstall-starting.jpg
    It seems to be related to the Windows Store. But the problem is that this service will infinitely remain as Starting! I have no idea why. If I disable this task scheduler the behaviour remains normal and this service will not auto-trigger at startup.

    Any ideas why this is happening? Is this supposed to be normal. Or is there something that is preventing it from being started?

    Surely if the PushToInstall task scheduler is safe to disable then why does it cause this behaviour?

    The reason I enabled this is I am having another problem. The Microsoft Store Install Service appears to fail with installing any new Device driver. For example when I installed my printer with Windows then I didn't have this problem.

    As soon as I uninstalled the driver and then reinstalled it. This is triggering the Microsoft Store Install Service to run at start up. Turning off the printer stops the trigger. This indicates that Microsoft Store is trying to install some app related to the device driver.

    I tried enabling PushToInstall as an experiment but I don't seem to have much success.

    I'd be grateful if someone can tell me how to fix this.
