I think I've had this computer for a little more than half a year. But I've
had to reformat it once, and I tend to leave my laptop on during the night
with wireless internet on. Also, only about 30% of the HD is used up, and I
don't make huge changes with any large programs/files, so I'm sure Disk
Defrag and the Search Indexer would have finished by now.
I've looked in the Task Manager, and there was like only one program that
ran on idle that I changed to run an hour after idle, and I didn't see
anything about the Search Indexer or Disk Defrag for Idle Triggers. So, is
there any other way to change Defrag and the Search Indexer to not run on
