Howdy folks,
Last night was playing ROF with the guys when I noticed some weird lockups (screen would freeze for a few seconds ..... not good when you close to the ground flying I can fucking tell you)

Anyway , alt/tabbed and could not see anything wrong but knew something didnt feel right, then
after some investigation I worked out that windows had decided to run the experience index again
when I was flying (not a good combo) , apparently windows runs this every so often by itself.

To disable this
Go to control panel -> administrative tools
Go to Task Scheduler.
Browse to Microsoft\Windows\Maintenance.
Disable the task named "WinSAT".

Hope this helps
