i dont like that O&O wont run unless you have the O&O Defrag service set as automatic. i dont want it running unless i call for it. so to fix this i made a small file to start the service and open O&O defrag.
with notepad copy past this and save the file as start.bat
make a new shortcut pointing to start.bat
go to start, run, services.msc, find O&O Defrag and set it to Manual, restart computer.
now O&O service and O&O defrag will only run after you open start.bat, and O&O defrag will open and run like it should.
