The IRST software has been tested and designed to work fine with the systems, therefore it should not affect the performance of the system. Honestly, the best to do is to get the IRST GUI again to have everything working as normal. You can download the latest IRST driver at the following link:
Besides installing this driver,
I recommend you updating some other drivers in your system such as the management engine in your system and installing the latest Bios Update from the computer manufacturer.
Thanks. There is definitely an issue with the IRST software churning the processor when the GUI is installed. There is a fair bit on other forums about that and I've seen it myself, although only recently, as mentioned. All my drivers are 100% up to date, although my BIOS is perhaps not.
Having said that, I'm still having the crash issue. It may be caused by a newer version of one of my other drivers, but I'll uninstall the IRST driver completely and fall back on the MS drivers in the short term as the next thing to test.
Sorry reviving an old thread but I had the same issue and disabling RST fixed it. Audio stuttering/skipping and shutdown occurred when playing mp3 in foobar2000, LatencyMon reveals it was RST causing it, uninstalling RST (and removing the install files) fixed the issue.
Thank you for the feedback and information provided about this matter, HKO2006, we really appreciate it.
