[YT] Hidden Windows Installers Crippling Your PC's Performance? - Page 5

post #41 of 51
Thread Starter 
This was posted for the sole purpose of being informative. Most everyone here spends time benching, posting and comparing their results. Anything running with the OS in its default state that could affect performance without warning should be mentioned so the playing field is even. Comments about how much of a power user you are and how this is dumb is purely useless, detracting and self aggrandizing. Frankly not everyone is you. Bottom line is that even the most novice user in regards to OS configuration could disable most all of this background junk in win7 and prior by just disabling updates which is one simple thing. W10 requires much more tweaking to get remotely the same result and thus info like this should be welcome for those that need it and simply ignored by those that don't

I don't agree with the approach of the YTer in passing the info off but no other channel had mentioned it thusforth that I could find. Info is info and it is pretty easy to extract it from a video regardless of how you feel about the person giving the info and their approach.

TLDR: if this helped you then great it served its purpose if it didn't there is really no reason to complain and sidetrack the conversation. I don't go into threads that don't have anything useful for me to add peanut gallery comments. I recommend perhaps finding something better to do with your time. rolleyes.gif

Don't let the haters get to you. It's always nice to revisit information. Be amazed how much can be lost in the shuffle over the years. On top of that there are people who are new and may not be aware of some of these processes.

Fair enough it was just discouraging to read such posts from veteran long time users on here...
I'm glad that some users got something out of this without focusing on the medium. It is hardly my favorite or go to channel that would be JayTwoCents hands down. thumb.gif

This isn't a huge deal for our high end desktops or people with SSDs but it's a huge problem for me at my job. Can't tell you how many times since Windows 10 has come out I've had laptops come in complaining about their HDD failing because the disk usage is pinned at 100%. Lo an behold the HDD is perfectly fine, passes all testing, but open task manager and voila, Windows Modules Installer pegging it to 100%. I've had laptops sit on my desk for over 4 hours sometimes before the process would finally finish and disk usage return to normal (sometimes it never returns to normal cause the client has like 10 anti-virus programs installed and a bunch of other crap and they want to blame the HDD, but that's another story lol). I seriously can not wait until mechanical HDDs for laptop usage die and every laptop ships with an SSD standard...

Yea, saw this coming with Win 10, it was already bad on Win 7 but I saw the writing on the wall. So when we upgraded all our computers to Windows 10 instead of buying a bunch of pre-builds from dell or HP I instead ordered full custom computers from AVA Direct which offered much more power for the price and let me select exactly what we needed for work and stay within our budget. As a result I ended up with 960EVOs in every computer at work. Way overkill but due to pricing it was not really a big difference in cost to know that I am basically never going to see the dam windows updates eating these machines and have users complain.

It is unfortunate though that you need to factor about 15% extra performance requirement so that people will not get any problems when Windows updates while they work. Another alternative is using GPOs to corral the update service and reduce its impact but then you are going to run into issues trying to keep everyone's systems up to date.

I dunno on my brother's PC between superfetch, Windows Update and all the telemetry disk usage was at a constant 100% and it was screwing everything up. Ran Spybot Anti-Beacon and disabled most of it and killed the superfetch service and it seems to have fixed the issue.

If you were on an SSD I think difference would matter less.

It's still a clickbait title, getting my post deleted because you disagree with what I said doesn't change anything. tongue.gif Nothing is hidden for the typical user here on OCN. I can speak that it does hit performance hard for me when there's a huge update patching/installing while I'm gaming. An i5 brought to 50% usage while you're playing something like XCOM tends to tank your experience pretty darn quick.
