Windows 7: Show Us Your WEI [4]

No the user has to run it, it would tell you if the score needs to be updated though, such as if you added RAM or a new GPU.

The 4770K will still only get a 7.8 if you can keep it cool enough to clock it enough.

Yes it does.

The reason why the the Aero suddenly disappear and reappear a while later is that your WinSAT(windows system assessment tool) is set to automatically run every week at 1am via Task Scheduler.

To disable or delete this task:

1) Search for Task Scheduler via Quick Search, or Start / All Programs / Administrative Tools / Task Scheduler
2) Navigate down into Task Scheduler Library / Microsoft / Windows / Maintenance
3) Right-click on "WinSAT" and choose disable/delete.


Borrowed to save me typing. I have confirmed it.

Ya Microsoft still acts like everyone leaves their pc's on 24/7 and still sets all these early morning maintenance stuff at 1am, just like windows updates being at 3am. I understand having that set for professional editions and higher. (Corp environments) But you would think home premium would not as most people I know turn their pc off after using it. I know most people here though are not like that

This one I understand:

There is also the system maintenance troubleshooter that is in their as a task somewhere that looks for broken shortcuts, and other things around 1 am as well.

Issues it looks for:
-Troubleshooting history is taking up disk space
-Broken shortcuts
-System time is set incorrectly
-There are icons on the desktop that haven't been used in 3 months.
-Disk volume errors
-Error reports are taking up disk space

An easier way to turn off the above is to go into action center, Troubleshooting-change settings-under computer maintenance, change this to off.

This can cause headaches in corp environments due to the fact that if someone has mapped network drives on a laptop and has not connected to the network in a while, windows might delete their mapped network drives shortcuts they have on the desktop. And somewhere usernameissues (uni) showed in some cases it detects shortcuts are not linked properly when in fact they are.

In short, you will be amazed how much task scheduler is used in windows from microsoft itself.

Thanks Andrew, I didn't know this and mine was enabled in Task Scheduler and had been running daily. I disabled it and a few other things as well.

Great suggestion. Make sure to check advanced mode. :)

I have noticed though that still not all scheduled tasks show up there.

Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit

If that is a laptop, replacing the graphics card would range from difficult to impossible. I found with my first notebook, increasing the RAM actually improved my graphics score dramatically. Your 2GB of RAM is a bit small for a Win 7 system; 4GB is normally the minimum needed. I would suggest checking to see if the computer can support more RAM (I have a sneaking suspicion it won't) and, if so, go here and download and run the Crucial System Scanner to see what RAM you can replace your present RAM with. It would be better to replace the RAM than to just add to it.

I wouldn't worry about your WEI score too much, however. It's purpose is primarily to provide a benchmark to monitor hardware performance; if the score goes down without you making any changes, it can help point out where the problem lies. A lot of people use the WEI for bragging rights but if your computer performs satisfactorily for you, then it doesn't really matter what the initial WEI score is.
