    Thankyou for that link! My "superfetch" utilizes at least 90% of my hard drive for 5 minutes after a restart, or startup. Seems to get worse with each major Win10 update. It's now disabled. Thanks again!

    I've actually been disabling the Windows Update services for years now, however with Windows 10 there is an interesting new behavior:

    It re-enables itself.

    How do I permanently disable it until I manually go to re-enable it?

    Or, if that is not possible, what causes it to restart? If I have to run a batch file every 5 minutes I will.

    Critical services can not be really disabled, in other words, they will start even when disabled.

    You can try StopUpdates10 or Win Update Stop.

    I have noticed a decrease in performance by disabling Superfetch service even if using an SSD.
