13. 00:00:41:15 / 00:00:49:37 - until we traced it down you can start it
14. 00:00:47:21 / 00:00:50:93 - manually you can stop it manually you
15. 00:00:49:37 / 00:00:58:09 - can change the time manually but you
16. 00:00:50:93 / 00:01:01:37 - cannot turn it off now the way to do it
17. 00:00:58:10 / 00:01:04:22 - manually is control panel you open up
18. 00:01:01:37 / 00:01:07:09 - control panel and then that brings you
19. 00:01:04:22 / 00:01:10:04 - to the home page system and security
20. 00:01:07:09 / 00:01:14:36 - security and maintenance and then you

22. 00:01:14:36 / 00:01:20:25 - it off so that Windows cannot
23. 00:01:16:29 / 00:01:23:61 - automatically start it you need to have
24. 00:01:20:25 / 00:01:25:22 - a little registry setting now that
25. 00:01:23:60 / 00:01:27:62 - sounds a little bit difficult but it's
26. 00:01:25:22 / 00:01:30:84 - actually quite simple I'll show you the
27. 00:01:27:62 / 00:01:33:06 - easy way first okay we have a little
28. 00:01:30:84 / 00:01:34:53 - file over here that's on our desktop you
29. 00:01:33:06 / 00:01:36:78 - can download you should be able to
30. 00:01:34:53 / 00:01:40:07 - download this from the description on
31. 00:01:36:78 / 00:01:42:98 - the YouTube video or our website and
32. 00:01:40:07 / 00:01:45:23 - basically if you click Edit on it
33. 00:01:42:98 / 00:01:48:56 - okay rather than running it you can see
34. 00:01:45:23 / 00:01:51:75 - all it does is basically it just has the
35. 00:01:48:56 / 00:01:53:72 - settings manually there I'm changing
36. 00:01:51:75 / 00:01:56:84 - this to one when you're done already it
37. 00:01:53:72 / 00:01:59:03 - should be one one basically turns off
38. 00:01:56:84 / 00:02:03:11 - automatic maintenance okay I'll just
39. 00:01:59:04 / 00:02:07:97 - close this and open up read is the
40. 00:02:03:11 / 00:02:10:59 - registry reg edit okay you run that and
41. 00:02:07:97 / 00:02:13:86 - that brings up this program now it's
42. 00:02:10:59 / 00:02:17:06 - automatically at this location
43. 00:02:13:86 / 00:02:19:86 - because we have done that I'll decided
44. 00:02:17:06 / 00:02:21:93 - that fall again if you look at it okay
45. 00:02:19:86 / 00:02:23:70 - where we are is H key local machine
46. 00:02:21:93 / 00:02:26:48 - everything exactly the same in
47. 00:02:23:69 / 00:02:29:45 - maintenance and we've added this
48. 00:02:26:47 / 00:02:32:48 - maintenance disabled and we're gonna
49. 00:02:29:46 / 00:02:35:96 - give it a setting off one which should
50. 00:02:32:49 / 00:02:41:52 - turn off automatic maintenance okay I'll
51. 00:02:35:96 / 00:02:43:68 - just close this double click on that
52. 00:02:41:52 / 00:02:46:11 - file now we're actually running it
53. 00:02:43:68 / 00:02:49:14 - rather than opening it to view it and
54. 00:02:46:11 / 00:02:52:80 - edit it ok can you see all it's done is
55. 00:02:49:13 / 00:02:55:72 - just change this to one when you get a
56. 00:02:52:80 / 00:02:58:50 - fresh out of the box brand new can lay
57. 00:02:55:72 / 00:03:03:37 - Windows 10 computer etc you will not
58. 00:02:58:50 / 00:03:07:88 - have this entry in there so our key our
59. 00:03:03:37 / 00:03:10:78 - registry key settings over here adds it
60. 00:03:07:88 / 00:03:15:76 - or you can manually add it by basically
61. 00:03:10:78 / 00:03:18:68 - going over there and then new reg D word
62. 00:03:15:77 / 00:03:20:71 - okay give it the name maintenance
63. 00:03:18:68 / 00:03:23:54 - disabled and give it a setting of one
64. 00:03:20:71 / 00:03:28:43 - anyway that was a long story of how to
65. 00:03:23:54 / 00:03:30:93 - get there in our control panel now if we
66. 00:03:28:43 / 00:03:32:50 - try to start maintenance you'll see no
67. 00:03:30:93 / 00:03:36:78 - matter how many times I'm clicking I'm
68. 00:03:32:50 / 00:03:39:14 - clicking nothing happens okay so
69. 00:03:36:78 / 00:03:42:12 - maintenance has been disabled now this
70. 00:03:39:15 / 00:03:44:78 - is brilliant ok for now because you'll
71. 00:03:42:12 / 00:03:47:61 - suddenly find that your battery is not
72. 00:03:44:78 / 00:03:50:09 - suddenly magically losing 10 20 30
73. 00:03:47:61 / 00:03:51:70 - percent or whatever at odd times of the
74. 00:03:50:09 / 00:03:54:87 - day
75. 00:03:51:70 / 00:03:58:34 - however automatic maintenance is a very
76. 00:03:54:87 / 00:04:00:42 - useful to with provided by Microsoft and
77. 00:03:58:34 / 00:04:04:53 - it does - kind of like shall we say
78. 00:04:00:41 / 00:04:07:01 - maintenance okay so you'd obviously want
79. 00:04:04:53 / 00:04:10:75 - to have it running some time every few
80. 00:04:07:01 / 00:04:13:76 - days maybe maybe once a week etc or when
81. 00:04:10:75 / 00:04:15:71 - you're in control of your battery etc so
82. 00:04:13:76 / 00:04:20:60 - the same file that you've downloaded
83. 00:04:15:71 / 00:04:23:63 - just edit it change it to zero click
84. 00:04:20:60 / 00:04:27:37 - Save if you can closes you don't have to
85. 00:04:23:63 / 00:04:28:88 - close it run it again the same way
86. 00:04:27:37 / 00:04:32:46 - [Music]
87. 00:04:28:88 / 00:04:34:30 - click okay if we bring up a registry
88. 00:04:32:47 / 00:04:38:32 - editor again you see it's changed to
89. 00:04:34:30 / 00:04:43:32 - zero now we can start the maintenance
90. 00:04:38:31 / 00:04:46:75 - manually if we want to or just let it
91. 00:04:43:32 / 00:04:48:96 - run as normal and windows will start at
92. 00:04:46:75 / 00:04:51:72 - its appointed time or as soon as
93. 00:04:48:97 / 00:04:55:24 - possible afterwards
94. 00:04:51:72 / 00:04:57:54 - hopefully this has helped and thank you
95. 00:04:55:24 / 00:04:57:54 - for watching
