I notice that while CI is running, all items in the Windows Task Scheduler are disabled. Further investigation shows that this is common to several of your games, including CI4, CI5, and Piggly. And because the scheduled tasks include several updaters including some antivirus stuff, I find this concerning.
Is there some way of stopping this? For that matter, how is it done? There are some scheduled things that I really don’t want even to be delayed from running. I appreciate that a player wouldn’t want to be interrupted for trivial things, but the global disruption of scheduled tasks seems excessive to me. It even knocks out tasks that are tagged with “Run with highest privileges” and “Hidden”, and this happens for the entire time the game is running, rather than just when time-critical things are happening.
