    Superfetch and Prefetch need to stay enabled. Disabling them, does not improve performance, same as you are asking how to disable System Restore in your other thread.

    Leave those items alone. You will actually cause more problems.

    On Win10 it needs those services on to function correctly. If your system disk is an SSD they will work accordingly. But for things like OneDrive or a 2nd non SSD drive it's still useful, also some software looks for and use them. Just let Windows take care of Windows, it was created with SSDs in mind.

    There's no reason to "baby" modern SSDs. Most of those recommendations are from few years ago when they were vulnerable to many writes and cell life was short, also were very expensive.

    Especially that Windows 10 handles Memory and drive management a whole lot better than previous editions.

    Yes, that too, ever since Windows became SSD aware, methinks it's from W7 Sp1. With XP, it used to be recommended and default virtual memory 2 1/2 times physical RAM !!!

    Since most, actually all of of comments, glorify Windows, it could not be farther from the truth, in my opinion.
    Just looking on some topics on this forum and how many people have problems due to bad memory management.
    It depends on what software user runs, but it is still beneficial to disable superfetch and handle memory by the user.

    I wouldn't call that glorifying, it took them much longer than most Linux kernels to get on the bandwagon of proper memory management.

    If you want to do stuff like this, just use a simple program like this, everything is just a tick away

    What a coinkidink, I just downloaded and tried this program although only customization and it's a dangerous program. After even mild customization I had to resort to System Restore. It shmucked up almost everything, even added another account !!! Restore defaults did even worse things.

    I have been using their other versions of this on win 7/8/8.1 and now 10.
    so been using it years, never had a single problem with it.
    cant see what you did to make it add another account, never done that here
    there isn't even an option in customization to do that, that I can see

    Problem was me! Most of my questions on this forum received a "Why do you wanna do it" response!
