When booting, CCC.exe causes my notebook disk usage go to 100% causing a great slowdown in my system. When I checked in Window's Resources Monitor, It showed that CCC.exe was accessing multiple random files at once. I mean, CCC.exe was opening files totally unrelated to any gpu event(opened some documents in some folders in my desktop). Is that "normal"?(of course it shouldn't) I have checked for virus and malware and nothing seems wrong. I am a developer with some years in the field (just to let you know I am not a grandma-user-level) I remember the slowdowns when booting from day one anyway.

Can I prevent this? Why is that ccc needs to access files anyway? Any insights would be more than welcome.

Thanks for the suggestion. Although, quite ambiguos, I think, you might be refering on how .net framework load assemblies and all that kind of dynamic linking.
Anyway, upon investigating a lilttle more, my problem is unrelated of "how .net framework works". A way of reproducing this issue is easy(in my case at least). Restart windows 8. As soon as it starts, open Visual Studio 2010 (No need to load a solution). (Haven't tested with other applications yet), and ccc.exe goes mad accesing files and folders on the disk. It isn't looking for assemblies or anything like it. It is opening my personal folders(as other folders). I think it is looking for exe files so it can add them automatically to the switchable graphics application menu. It is not even a single threaded file opening(queued), since several files and folders are opened at once. What kind of behavior is that! Is there a way to deactivate that automatic search or whatever it is?
