Change Maintence Settings in Action Center (Control Panel > Action Center)
Sometimes it starts itself. I want to completely shut it down.
There are many processes. I want to know if you can kill the feature with a group policy setting or something.
EDIT: I found some settings on gpedit.msc but they are useless.
Open task scheduler
then select: Microsoft>Windows>TaskScheduler
and disable "Regular Maintenance" & "Idle Maintenance"
Why do you want to do that?

There is not need to do that if you have SSD in windows 8 because it will not defragment(optimize) SSD drive...
Locate maintenanceui.dll in C:\windows\system32, take ownership of it and rename it to maintenanceui.dll.bak.
Thank you guys. I use a mechanical hard drive, stop talking about SSDs
correct, it will send the TRIM command instead of defragging it.
