Question about Computers & Internet
When you are not using Windows, the operating system will reduce the swap file size (since it is not being used) and the ‘System Restore’ software is making back-ups of critical files. Also, if you have a Sound Blaster card, a piece of software called Disc Detector constantly polls the drives for new media. To disable this, you will find an icon in the Control Panel labeled Disc Detector. Also, you can disable PCHEALTH from MSCONFIG and see if that helps as well. This does not seem to affect Windows. This is a "scheduler" and does *not* turn off PC Health. The PCHealth entry in MSConfig & the Task Scheduler is *only* for data collection. "pchschd.exe" launches winmgmt.exe to collect this data if the system is idle. Quite unnecessary for the vast majority of users of Me.
