Where is it?” Well… really, In the latest Windows 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:
