I am sorry to hear you are having issues with our Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology application.
If possible post on this thread the Intel® System Support Utility so we can gather more information about the hardware and software configuration you currently have in your systems https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility
I am doing further research about this issue.
For me, I see the window pop up and then quickly minimize early in the boot process. Then it pops up and stays later after other startup programs have loaded.
Hi Fred D
I read your post and here is my SSU scan result. This began happening to me when I update to Windows 10 version 1709. Before version 1709 the Turbo Boost 3.0 splash screen would splash on start up and go away while still running in the background. No issues.
Good luck with you investigation.
Same here. I may try using the ASrock version which seems to be slightly older. Must be a hard topic for intel to launch a tool in background. Normally not even that damn icon should be required ^^
Had same problem after windows update. I think I found out what causes this. Was reading something on another topic and came across a recommendation to uncheck
the feature in the power options for fast boot up. This is under what power buttons do. It is recommended to keep this checked but I read that it's really unnecessary if you have a SSD
as your boot drive.I did this and lo and behold the Intel TBMT panel minimized as it had done in the past. So far it's done it every time I've booted up since I disabled the fast boot up option.
Haven't noticed any slowdown in boot time either. I am guessing the latest Windows update(Fall Creators Update) enabled this as the default. Hope maybe this will help others with this
problem. Good Luck!
I saw your post today and inspected my PC to see how my PC is optioned.
As I stated in my original post, the Intel Boost Screen would just splash on on then go out leaving the Turbo Boost running in the background.
I went to "Settings"/"System"/"Power & Sleep"/"Additional Power Settings"/"Shut Down Settings"
The option "Turn On Fast Start" was checked but grayed out making it unavailable to change. At the top there was a blue line of text that said "Change settings that are currently available" and I clicked on that and the "Turn On Fast Start" check box and the other three check boxes were enabled. The blue line of text disappeared but I don't see a problem.
I unchecked the "Turn on Fast Startup" and saved it. I will now restart my PC to see if I got the same solution as you did. I will log back in and state my results.
I "Restarted" my PC and the Intel Turbo Boost screen still remained on. So I then "Shut Down" my PC and the Intel Turbo Boost screen remained on again.
So this doesn't work for me.
With the "Turn On Fast Startup" box not checked my PC did have a noticeable slowdown while starting.
After installing MS Windows 10 Version 1709 I noticed that on startup I no longer got a second or two of the new MS hourglass dotted circle running
under the MS logo during startup. My PC would just display the MS logo and then the desktop top would appear. I don't even see the lock screen anymore
except when I unchecked that option. So for me it does make a difference. I'm clicking that option again on again.
My PC is a "Built my Nick" PC. It was built last November of 2016 and has all of the latest whistles and bells with parts selected by "Nick".
So let's all encourage "Fred D." of Intel to come up with a solution. Go Fred! We are all waiting for you.
By the way. I found a good tech website that shows the disabled/grayed out "Shutdown Settings" check boxes and the "Blue Text Button" you have to click to
enable/activate the "Shutdown Settings" check boxes. The 'Blue Text Button" is labeled "Change settings that are currently unavailable.
Best to all
Same here, everything was perfect & ITBM was working great. Now it says ITBM Driver Not Available Exiting Application. I've tried uninstalling, boot, reinstall etc but still it gives that error. I've attached my system log
endercabuker.txt.zip 6.0 K
I tried this but did not make a difference for me. Still get the TBMT pop up.
All you need is to disable ITBM 3.0 application launcher in Windows 10 task scheduler and disable corresponding service in computer management menu.
It will stop this good for nothing application from launching at the start of OS.
It is a big disappointment... Intel support is useless and non professional.
It is over two month after launching Windows 10 FCU and you cannot update your stupid software or suggest to people any reasonable solution.
Of course, it is not as much interesting as to sell your hardware for an insane price.

I just received this information from engineering:
From our side we did the following steps and were unable to reproduce the issue:
1. Install ITBM 3.0 version 22.214.171.1243 on Win 10 RS3 OS.
2. Reboot the system.
4. Click on ‘minimize’ button seen on top right corner of the ITBM.
5. Observe ITBM is minimized properly.
6. Click on ITBM Icon on taskbar to refocus on desktop & minimize back to taskbar repeatedly.
We would like to know if you all did a clean Win10 RS3 installation or if you have updated from RS2 to RS3 while having ITBM version 126.96.36.1993 installed.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
Clean OS installation in my case.And strange things with ITBM started from the beginning.
Intel-System driver(188.8.131.523) was installed three times. Two times in first day and one time through one day after OS installation.
And all three times successfully.
Also i tried to reinstall it couple of times. Without changes . Always the same abnormal behavior of this application and even worst.
Sometimes start button and taskbar could become inactive because of some device installation process ,which is Intel device i suppose.
The only solution (for the last problem) i found is to disable “Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update” in login options.
P.S.Are you sure that you are received this "solution" from Intel engineering? It missed paragraph 7.Pray to the God
Anyway i hope your instruction will help someone. As a Christmas joke at least.
