    Intel Extreme Tuning Utility




      I just installed Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (Version to monitor CPU utilisation and temperature on my PC (Surface Book, Intel Core i7 6600U).


      Reading about this software online, I came across some horror stories about how this program may automatically change settings on your system. Given

      (1) I have an Intel Core (i.e. compatible with the program) and

      (2) I only accessed the "System Information" tab (to monitor CPU utilisation and temperature; haven't accessed any of the other tabs in the program),

      Can I safely assume that no changes were made to my system (in terms of cache, clock settings, etc)?


      Sorry for the stupid question, but thought it couldn't hurt to ask.





      Edit: Just added a bit more information.
