Since the anniversary updates to windows 10 there has been an issue of windows causing lag and high disk usage on gamer PC's. On PCs with low cpu power such as AMD a6 or a4 models or Intel low power cpus there is also cpu hogging with a process called compattelrunner.exe.

We have found a way to prevent too much hogging as well as disable a large portion of Microsoft data tracking that is useless to you and leaves your pc using more electricity than you would like even when not touching your computer.

How to disable windows compatibility telemetry in Windows 10 Anniversary update hold windows key and press r enter compmgmt.msc and hit OK select Services and Applications on the left double click Services on the right find Diagnostic Policy Service right click and select properties find startup type drop down menu and select disabled click Apply then click Stop
