Your setting look like mine in your picture. Nothing runs unless I tell it to.

Something you could look at.
Ccleaner/ Tools and look under schedule.
So your tasks show they never run ...
Can you Enable All Tasks History and show me screen prints like I've included ?
Below is another Screen Print - I have Enable All Tasks History set ... ALWAYS, so I can better see what happened.

Even without "All Tasks History", what does your task show for Last Run Time and Next Run Time ?
Please show me a screen print.

I don't notice most of these tasks running, and I certainly don't request them to run ...
But I believe they do run, or Task History is totally wrong !

When i installed my win7, i turned off about 50 services and tasks that were set to run by default and they do nothing but cause problems for users.

Anyway, back to the issue, whatever i did, was not enough. that crap "aepdu.dll" still runs. Seems like there was another aepdu.dll in some amd folder.

I had enough of this crap, so i simply renamed the file to aepdu.dll.bak and create empty text.txt file and renamed it to aepdu.dll and made changed permission to "read only"...lets see if that junk still bothers my HDDs. I'm quite sure it won't bother me again, but will have to see.

oh yeah and speaking of win 7 turning off defrag for SSD? RIGHT ... windows 7 is still in the "floppy" era, how can you expect it to even know about SSDs??
What i mean, is that during installation, sometimes it gives error about some drivers (sometimes when DVD is corrupt or there's dust/scratches on it, it gives false error and says its about drivers, while all it is .. is disk read error). Anyone, it offers you option "insert floppy with drivers" .. so yeah, really...win7 and SSD? RIGHT!
It isn't defrag tho, it's that aepdu.dll that is doing it.
I apologize for taking your thread off track
I converted an OS from a HD to a SSD using Acronis Backup Imaging, and I was pleasantly surprised that "Scheduled Auto Defrag" removed the SSD from the schedule (for me).
It was one of the first things I checked after the conversion ...
I'll see if I can find anything about "aepdu.dll" that might help ... :)
