    Problem with Intel Extreme Tuning Utility v1.3.9.1

    jaesposito

      All,

       

      I have an Alienware Aurora desktop (i7 920).  I tried using the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (v.1.3.9.1) to AutoTune my settings.  When I ran AutoTune, it select markedly worse settings and restarted my computer to apply those settings.  When my machine boots up to the desktop, the "PerfMonGui.exe -startup" executable associated with the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility asks if it can run.  If I select "Yes," it attempts to complete applying the settings and locks up my machine.  If I select "No," I can go to the desktop and continue working as normal.

      I no longer want this application attempting to complete its job as it will freeze my machine.  I've already disabled the Service within 'msconfig.'  However, I no longer want it pestering me at Startup.

      Is my only option to uninstall the application at this point or is there something else I can do?

      Also, if I uninstall the application, is there a risk that I will have a further problem.

      Please help!!!

      Thank you.
