    Use system restore to go back before the change. For tasks I will check and post. For cortana...really? I mean you dont need to do any tweaks if you are leaving cortana alive...

    I don't need Cortana, I thought it was necessary for the search function to work. If it can be disabled on 1803 completely without breaking any other main functions I'd be more than happy to send Cortana into the depths of hell.


    Sadly I didn't create a restore point. But it's no issue, I've just formatted recently, I haven't installed all my programs & games yet. Could format again and try an updated or new script.

    I'm assuming whatever broke the search function (not being able to type in search at all), is also responsible for not being able to type in Edge, or type in the settings menu to search. That and breaking the Task Scheduler that's responsible for start up items is a big issue. MSI Afterburner & Process Lasso both won't even start any more, reinstalling them doesn't fix the issue either.

    I saw some other changes also discussed in the following pages that aren't changed in the script yet. So an updated version of that script would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I myself use task menager too. So I hope I just REMed the registry entry that disables it. I will post it soon. Not at home atm. Although you should consider as myself to use startup function from win10 and not task manager. There are many hidden win10 spy proces that start with task manager. All real gamers disable it. I use it. For proc lasso and other things. As for cortana and search functions they are conected although I have seen some tweaks on the net that disable cortana and keep the search function. In my case I disabled cortana and edge long before this tweaks so I cant help you there. Good things they are still there and you can enable them. Search the net on how to do that.

    It's not the task manager, that still works fine. It's the task scheduler (for start up items, or for items you can schedule manually to run every 5 minutes for example).

    When that's disabled, some important start up tasks are gone. Performance of games isn't usually an issue for me, I'm running a 4790K @ 4.7Ghz and an overclocked GTX 1070. The most important tweaks I need are the network tweaks that decrease latency & ping, reduce jitter, and improve response times. I live in Australia, so any help I can get from improving the network would be great.

    The PC is connected using a half a 30cm CAT6A LAN Cable to my router. My internet is 116Mbps download, and 5Mbps upload. There's no advantage at getting a Cat7 cable yes? Very small distance, 30cm to the router cable.

    I'll wait for an updated script and just format and try it. Thank you for your help.

    Start with the "optimal" settings in the TCP Optimizer, read the Gaming article on the main site about tweaking your Network adapter settings (mainly disable any "offloads"), done.

    Hello Philip, thank you for the reply, I appreciate it. I was under the impression from this thread that TCP Optimizer is no longer fully functional due to changes made in Windows 10 since 1709 update, and now 1803 update might have introduced more. I've always done the Network Adapter Settings part, I had used this network card back in the days, and I still have it, but unplugged:

    And it helped as well with latency, but since post-Windows 7 days, there have been no drivers for it and Intel has said in their forums they no longer support it. And the Microsoft driver for it isn't the same, so I just use my onboard Intel network now on the ASUS Maximus VII Ranger, which is still receiving updates by using Snappy Driver Installer, last update came out last month.

    The TCP Optimizer was updated after the 1803 release, less than a month ago. There were a couple of changes needed, but the latest version is fully functional.

    Intel makes very good NICs and their drivers are stable as well, even the onboard NICs work well. I'd still disable most offloads/coalescing to reduce additional processing of packets by the network adapter.

    Thanks Philip. I followed the Gaming Tweaks page after applying the optimal settings using TCP Optimizer. Also used O&O ShutUp10 to disable Cortana, One Drive, and most of the useless features (that program worked well and didn't break any major components of the OS), then I ran the script below using PowerShell to delete all non-essential Windows Apps and disable the XBox shenanigans that come with the OS:

    @Blackfyre, You can fix the scheduler with this command:
    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBrokerSvc" /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 00000003 /f
    try 00000002 if you want.

    BTW I've posted several batch files. Look for them. Also make this on .reg file. I grabbed this from my previous post but I changed few settings. You will have a nice boost in booting Windows as well, especially if you have SSD. v1803 change some settings but still. Also check Power Options on CPU settings.

    Thanks n1kobg, I made a .reg file with your recommended tweaks, ran it and restarted the computer. My Power Management is set to Bitsum Highest Performance, I use Process Lasso, and I have that set to High Performance Mode as well. As for fixing the scheduler, there was no need any more, I already formatted my computer. Scheduler working fine now, search functions working as it should, and Cortana & most of the rubbish apps that come pre-installed have been removed.
