Disabling "wdphotodbmerger" and "wdcmserver"

Could someone please tell me how can i prevent these two process from ever starting up or running, even after a reboot?:



They take alot of cpu. I dont want to use any media streaming etc features.


Presumably you could just rename the executables.   Whatever script is calling them won’t be able to find them.

Or, you could do chmod a-x to turn off their execute permissions.


But i think i figured out another way of doing this:

I think it should prevent from it being started but ill have to wait and see

added the following in  crontab -e

@reboot /bin/sh /etc/rc2.d/S85wdmcserverd stop

@reboot /bin/sh /etc/rc2.d/S86wdphotodbmergerd stop
