How to Speed Up Windows 10/8/7 [Disk Usage Performance]

Posted 11 May 2017 - 01:50 PM

This will be a quick Tutorial on:

How to Speed Up the Windows Performance!

Microsoft often sabotages her own product for some unknown reason. Placing services and tasks that are useless. You see, that's why Linux are usually faster and for a far much longer period than Windows.

But we can make some quick fixes that will blow your mind!
Because the "Before-After" results are surprising.

Being a Windows 10 user, I realized that my Disk Usage was up to 100%. All ... The ... Time. I was doing nothing ... 100%. I was playing Games ... 100%. Surfing ... 100%.

Malware? Not necessary. It could be, but in this case not. At least not an original malware, but a Microsoft Malware.

I opened the Task Manager, debugged ... and found out that some services with Microsoft's label on them may have seemed that use low MB/s but after killing them the Disk Usage was down to 0-10%. That was encouraging on the aspect that I could fix that.

Step 1:
Disable some services
  • Ctrl + R
  • Write "services.msc"
  • Search for -one by one-:
    • Windows Search
    • Windows Modules Installer
    • Superfetch
    • Connected User Experiences and Telemetry
    • Background Intelligent Transfer Service
    • User Experience Virtualization Service

  • And disable them all.


Many of them even claim that they improve the performance. Not really. I would say the complete opposite since by the time I disabled them, my PC stopped lagging.


Step 2:
Disable Telemetry Completely
  • Ctrl + R
  • Write "gpedit.msc"
  • -> Computer Configuration
    -> Administrative Templates
    -> Windows Components
    -> Data Collection and Preview Builds
  • Click on "Allow Telemetry"
  • Enabled but "0 - Security [Enterprise Only] or Disabled if that option is not available


It's a quick but very important tutorial. You can see for yourself that people all over the internet complain about Disk Usage and Windows Performance, which is critical.
This tutorial is a small patch that helped me and so will help you.

I'll bite.. how much more fast is your machine?

I don't know about you, but my disk utilization bounces between 0 and 10% give or take. Not sure what you did to make it 100% all the time.

Nothing really. I don't download pirated games. I only use it for developing. But it's a fact that many people actually have the 100% Disk Usage problem for some weird reason. And paradoxically, all the Services that made me go to 100% were Microsoft's services. Now it's completely okay.

Okey dokey.. well hopefully you didn't bork things further down the road by killing off useful services.

A quick head count here - no one is even remotely at 100%.. let alone 20%.

My screenshots. Never been 0% before. And this was like 90% of the time. Like all the guys describing on the internet as well.

I'll avoid the potentially pedantic discussion about "all the people have problem X" when that is patently not true.

Well.. good luck with switching off your services.

Modi I didn't claim that all people have this certain problem, just said that many people have it.
You just told that No one has it that's the thing. :stuart:
