Thanks tremendously, DJX. I appreciate every bit of info on making a computer into a good daw. Indigo L On 11/23/2011 11:38 AM, D!J!X! wrote:
The only one you can do is change win defender, the options I forget where, but just disable the windows defender service. The autodefrags and such can only be disabled by shutting off the task scheduler service, but that's not recommended, it'll hurt other things. I don't think system restore has much of a configuration to it, other than turning it on and off lol. They should include a manual option or something...

If enabled, a windows defender scan runs prior to that. This defrag is good enough to keep a basic system going good, but for daws you should still run the full manual defrag on all drives at least every 2 weeks.

I'm using MSE. I used to use jkdfrag and c clean on xp. So are peeps using any tools like that under win 7? I believe win 7 does it's own defrag, so one like jkdfrag isn't so needed. Any Suggestions, be appreciated. Ross.
