    Turbo Boost Window @ Startup

    Aviem

      Just a quick question about Turbo Boost. Wasn't sure whether to ask in software or processor. Sorry if I chose poorly.

       

      At startup "Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0" is always up on the screen. Just a minor annoyance, but is there a way to hide the UI at startup? I can't find the option.

      If not, can I disable it at startup without losing the functionality? I found several posts about disabling the 'monitoring' window, but I'm not sure that's what this is.

      Thanks in advance

          Hello :
           
          I looked for a possible work around in order to try to remove the tool from Windows start up, not sure if you already try this option but I found a link that might be useful for you:
           
          http://www.howtogeek.com/74523/how-to-disable-startup-programs-in-windows/
           
          Also, in regard to your question, if you disable the monitoring window the turbo boost will still work as it should, because the functionality of the feature does not depend on that program, it is just for you to be able to check how the turbo boost behaves.
           
          If after trying the steps above the problem remains you can also get in contact with Microsoft for further assistance, they might have different options to resolve this situation.

              Hello, I had the same issue since I was using windows 10 (https://communities.intel.com/thread/109932). It was solved for me after installing Intel Turbo-Boost Max Technologie 3.0  eng 1001031 this summer. But since the Windows Fall Creators Update I had the same Issue agin. The window poped up every startup. I installed intel(r) turbo boost max 1.0.0.1033 on 27. October with no success.

               

              btw: The workarround from above is not working anymore. Under msconfig is "Systemstart" not configurable anymore, but you have to look in the Task-Manager. In the Task-Manger under Autostart is the Turbo Boost Window not listed for me.

              Picture:

              Today I noticed that it was popping up on startup, then disappearing like it should but popping up again. So I tryed to deinstall it. Did the deinstall, reboot -> BUT! It is now working.

              It is still listed as installed with the date from today Picture: n7RpV8l

              And it is now minimized after startup.

              Very strange.

                Hi : In order to try to fix this issue, you can either un-install the application, the Intel® Turbo Boost feature does not depend on the application so it will still work properly, or since the problem started after doing the Windows Fall Creators Update, the other option will be to get in contact with Microsoft directly in order to get a possible solution or a workaround for this problem:

                  Thx, but i cant deinstall the "application" UI. It is after the reboot still listed as installed.

                    Are you using the Apps and Features scene to uninstall it? Is the uninstall proceeding to completion without error? Did it ask you to do the reboot or did you just do so on your own initiative?

                      Try this:

                       

                      - Open computer management (for instance right click the "^This PC" icon, select (more) > "Manage"

                       

                      - On the left hand side drill down the tree Computer Management > System Tools > Task Scheduler > Task Scheduler Library

                       

                      - Now you have all scheduled tasks listed in the top center part of the screen, look for Intel(R) Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Technology Application Launcher

                       

                      - Right click that entry and select "Disable"

                       

                      After the next reboot the application shouldn't start automatically anymore

                        Yes

                        >Is the uninstall proceeding to completion without error?

                        Yes

                        >Did it ask you to do the reboot or did you just do so on your own initiative?

                        As far as I remember it is just “uninstalled“. I did the reboot by my own. I got a promt to reboot after the deinstall, which I did. After the reboot the entry is back in the Apps and Features scene.

                          Changing or even deleting the entry is not possible.

                          After the reboot the entry is like this again:

                            I was able to get this to run minimized.

                             

                            Everything else I have tried has failed so this may be the only way to have this run, but not be up in your face when starting Windows.

                             

                            Just go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel Corporation\Intel(R) Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0\

                             

                             

                            Rename ITBM.exe to whatever.exe. Upon startup, the program runs but does not come to the foreground, which is a desired result.

                            Also, this was done in tandem with disabling the ITBM service under Services in Device Manager.

                             

                             

                            I think it's irresponsible of Intel to point fingers at Microsoft and put the burden of this poorly written program onto thousands if not millions of users. How hard would it be for the program writers to put a checkbox that minimizes this application on startup. Shame on you intel.
