I need some guidance about experiencing my disk getting hammered by Windows 10.
Disclaimer: this is on a limited Lenovo laptop with a slower spinning disk and only 2Gb ram, so I might not even notice on a beefier machine, but right now a bunch of apparently "routine" scheduled tasks and windows-related processes seem to be killing my disk. It's death by a thousand cuts...
The main ones I'm running into are:
- rundll32 (AEINV.DLL, ProgramDataUpdater)
So I've made sure I'm opted out of the "Customer Experience Improvement Program" (CEIP) in PC Settings. Being paranoid, I also went into Task Scheduler (Task Scheduler Library -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Customer Experience Improvement Program) to disable the 3 tasks related to it (Consolidator, KernelCeipTask, UsbCeip), and also disabled the ProgramDataUpdater task (Task Scheduler Library -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Application Experience).
I'm not sure what to do about the others, if anything.
Is this just a case of "Doctor, it hurts when I do that" (i.e. run Windows 10 on a bare bones laptop), so...don't do that?
Or, are there known Windows 10 tweaks to turn a bunch of background crap off that I just need to be educated about?
Or, is there something more potentially happening here (whether malicious or just corrupted)?
Happy to provide any additional info, follow any tutorials, etc. Grateful for any help.
