    Thanks DavidE


    Thanks for posting the Maintenance Configuator task file for Win 8.1. I imported it into my Task Scheduler along with the other three tasks and it all works fine. I am sure there are many others who will benefit from your uploads as well.
    Thank again!

    Hello DavidE,
    Thank you for uploading the Maintenance Configurator Task Scheduler file. I imported it into my computer and it works great. You are going to help a lot of Win 8 & 8.1 users with these files. I could not find them anywhere on the web, SFC/DISM retrieval or from Microsoft,com.

    Thanks again!

Hello All- Upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 yesterday and all is well except that "Regular Maintenance" in the Task Scheduler, set for 3:00 A.M. started at 5:30 A.M. Trigger is set for 3:00 A.M. every day, yet "Next Run Time" is 4:30 A.M. There do not appear to be any conflicting tasks, and the...

Hi there, new here. Just recently updated to Windows 8.1 via Windows 8's Store. One thing I've noticed, though, is that two tasks - Idle Maintenance and Regular Maintenance run when I'm on battery as opposed to just when I'm on power (I use a laptop). Curious, I looked in Task Scheduler and...
Solved Deleted maintenance tasks in task scheduler in Performance & Maintenance
So I deleted maintenance tasks in task scheduler (Microsoft>windows>task scheduler) because I didn't want to have automatic maintenance fire up when I'm working, but sadly... some shit got messed up. My computer starts using hdd at 100% if left idle, and then freezes and all kinds of weird crap...
