    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"

    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.

    correct, it will send the TRIM command instead of defragging it.
