vista defrag

  sunny staines 20:04 06 May 2008

apparently vista defrags automatically when the pc is in low usage. Is there a way to turn this off as I use an optimised defrag [JKDefrag]

Untick 'run on a schedule' box.

It will,if left alone,reduce to very sparse use and leave you with a faster hard drive because it is not fragmented. I let mine run and if I use the system it waits till I have finished and then carries on.

in advanced tools via control panel was able to change settings but not turn off so set for a monthly scan when pc will be turned off.

all programs, accessories, system tools, defrag and untick the box (the only box)

if that box is greyed out, i guess you're not allowed, try right click run admin from system tools in start menu. if you're believe in your security software.....
1- Click Start, and type “secpol.msc” in the search area and click Enter.
2- You may receive a prompt from UAC, approve/login and proceed.
3- In the left list, choose “Local Policies”, then “Security Options”
4- Set “Accounts: Administrator account status” to Enabled.
5- Set “User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account” to Disabled.
6- Now log-off, and you’ll see a new account named “Administrator” will be available, click on it to login.
you will then be allowed:)
