Question: How do I get my computer to do its maintenance when it¹s convenient for me?

The IT Guy says:
Working in your System Maintenance folder, select the custom option after selecting changing your settings. You will find a much more flexible schedule of times. Then you will be presented a list of options to check or not to speed up your start up. You will also be given an option to Scan or Defrag your drive at a specific time or right now. Finally and option to delete Temporary files, which I highly recommend. You can review all of these choices in a summary screen and then run the functions right now or as set up. If you decide to take out some functions in Start up and it is a problem for you, you may go back and re-check them.
