Not only does it come with many new features, but Windows 8 also improves on features from previous versions of Windows. One of them is Maintenance – the feature that automatically diagnoses your system. It can scan for viruses, spyware, update the system, and other works to keep your Windows healthy. By default, Maintenance is set to start at a specific time (3:00 a.m.) daily; if it can’t run at that time, it will do it when the system is idle. In this article, I will show you how to control this feature – include set time, and start and stop it manually.
Note: in Windows 8, it doesn’t allow you to turn off Maintenance completely. You can only start it manually and stop it when you know it is running.
To start or stop Maintenance, you should do following.
As I have said before, the system automatically runs maintenance at 3:00 a.m. every day by default. If you want to change that time, you can follow these steps.
Maintenance uses a lot of system resources, so make sure that you didn’t set the automatic time during work time. Otherwise, enjoy!
