There are often more programs and processes in Windows than you might suspect. For example, Windows includes a built-in task scheduler that applications and services use to perform actions at specified times or under certain conditions. PC Tasks Optimizer wants to help you to eliminate superfluous tasks.

When you take a look at the various subfolders of the Windows Task Scheduler Library, you notice how many tasks there are scheduled. However, it is not so easy to decide what exactly such a task is for and whether you can disable it?
The approach of PC Tasks Optimizer is somewhat more intuitive: you do not switch tasks based on task names but on task and job descriptions. This means that you can better assess the effect of tasks that you possibly put on non-active.
Tasks and subtasks
There are about twenty job descriptions, where such a description can contain multiple subtasks. One of the descriptions is, for example, I do not use Microsoft Active Directory: there is a good chance that you (here for a home network) can place a check mark here. You notice that this description contains two subtasks. If you want to leave one of them active, then you only place a check mark on the other.
Other examples are:
* I have disabled the Microsoft Experience Improvement Program;
* I do not connect any devices via Bluetooth;
* My computer does not contain a location sensor or I do not because Windows to track my location.
Deactivating tasks is, therefore, a matter of placing the desired check marks and pressing the Optimize Tasks button. The requested tasks are immediately disabled and you will receive a detailed overview. However, we recommend that you back up your current settings each time using the Backup & Restore button before your tasks turn off. Via the same button, you can then restore the previous configuration on the basis of the backup file.
Windows itself schedules numerous tasks that still consume system resources to a certain extent. Trying to analyze from the built-in Task Scheduler is almost impossible. With PC Tasks Optimizer that goes much faster as this tool works with clearer descriptions. However, you should first back up your current settings and do not expect spectacular performance gains.
