    Well, you have the recommendation. You're free to do with it as you will, of course. Good luck.

    Well yes, I know. And I thank you for it. I've always know that course was there and come the need I'll employ it. Meanwhile I'll pursue whatever trails I detect. Right now I'm chasing down whatever causes these upgrades to fail and has done for a long time.

    I just saw how long that speccie output was. Too long. Sheer waste of space most of it. But I can't edit old posts like that an I? Maybe a moderator can cut it down. Or if I'm wrong and I can edit old posts I'll cut the extra rubbish out of it.

    edit: I tried and I don't think it worked. Error at this end or that I don't know. I'll leave it alone. The forum thinks it is a waste of space their moderators will deal with it I guess.

    You have 107 services showing as running, many of them well-known for disk activity. (By comparison, my Win 10 Pro with 4GB RAM has 85 services running, 3 of which are because I have iTunes installed).

    Consider using the Windows Update Blocker temporarily - this will shut down services that are heavily orientated towards disk-activity, i.e. Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS), Delivery Optimization, Update Orchestrator Service and Windows Update.

    Consider disabling the Connected User Experience and Telemetry service, responsible for more disk-based activity.

    Consider temporarily disabling the AppX Deployment Service to stop it's almost constent updating of Store-based apps.

    Use something like Nir Sofer's CurrPorts or Sysinternals/Technet's TCPView to determine endpoints of established network connections, look at the processes involved and see whether there's apps which are in regular/constant contact elsewhere... do they need to?

    For example, does the Adobe Acrobat Update Service need to be running or can you carry out a manual update check instead so you can disable the service. How about those phone managerment services (e.g. JoinMEUI Assistant Service, SAMSUNG Mobile Connectivity Service and Windows Phone IP over USB Transport).

    What's the effect on disk activity if you temporarily disable Avira's services?

    (Why disable Prefetch? IMO this works in your best interests, not against.)
