Getting the most from PC is always a headache for all PC users – whether he/she is a pro or amateur. In fact no one knows how to deal with his PC safely and how to get the best performance from it. But it is true that – as days passes, your PC is becoming old and side-by-side using its performance. You have to accept it. You cannot expect that it will keep you a steady service forever. And sometimes, you need to replace it with a new one. It's natures law and you cannot deny (although it is a "Thing" but yet it's true). But you can make some tweaks and follow some guidelines to make your PC last long and give you a better performance. Today we will learn how to Turn Off Disk Defragmenter Schedule, By default Disk Defragmenter is scheduled to run in the background automatically every so often in Windows 7.

You should either set the schedule to run at a time when you are not using the computer while it is on, or turn it off and run Disk Defragmenter manually when it is convenient for you instead.
