You must have read a lot of articles on the Internet suggesting that you disable the Superfetch service if you have your Windows OS installed on an SSD.
A few days ago our reader asked a question “I want to disable the Superfetch service but I can’t find it in the list of services. Where is it?”
Well… really, in the latest Windows 10 builds Microsoft decided to change the Display Name from “Superfetch” to “Sysmain”.
You can disable the service if you like especially if you believe that it is the culprit of high CPU usage. So find SysMain, double-click it, select “Disable”, click “Stop” and then click “OK”.
Get used to the new name.
And do not disable Windows 10 services unless you are 100% sure you know what you are doing.

Screw microsoft – senseless name changes
Obviously know it’s an issue and smart people disable…so they change the name. Smart people STILL find it and disable. Microsoft the stupid one.
Very good, I had a lot of time looking for it to disable it… Thanks
Thanks – “Disable Superfetch” “Not Found” “Services” – Keywords for Google’s ‘index’ etc.
