    well. discovery. removed XTU against my better judgement. seems to be tied to that. Gonna re-install it but im afraid its gonna add it by default. Then i have to either live with it i imagine, or ... well i think thats my only option at that point. bbs

    I'm lost. You removed the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility? I thought you were going to use Revo and uninstall the 2 we mentioned? The Support and the Improvement Program?

    they never showed up in revo. revo saw the driver program you asked me to add, and added its own telemtry program that was different from the one that is present in my control panel.

    I removed the driver program and its constituent but the program i came here to remove remained as its not entered individually and was only removed as I removed XTU to see if thats what put it there in the first place (and it was).

    So now, upon re-adding XTU, it put it back. Apparently theres an opt in/out box when installing XTU and i opted in under the assumption it would be a background thing that wouldnt bother me. I didnt realize it would put a gaudy control panel entry that all but advertises "hey im bloat"

    Anyways, what i mean is now upon installing XTU, im not allowed to opt in or out. It just automatically re pops up so whatever changed when i initially opted in, intel seems to have craftily slid in a place where it remains so if you reinstall it auto confirms you as opting in.

    Really not sure where to go from here.

    Hope that made/makes sense.

    edit: or maybe it just adds it by default and im remembering incorrectly. Either way id love to hide or remove it.

    /sigh

    I've never had the Extreme Tuning Utility by itself installed on this machine. I just checked the Intel site and I see it is available, but I've never had it. I don't know how to tell you to get rid of it. I'm sorry.

    its okay. i just dug around and removed every remnant of the program. After a reinstall it certainly did pop up with the box to opt in.

    I said no, and said to never ask me again. Guess what? It STILL added the control panel entry!

    Any takers with an intimate knowledge of how these things work? I woulda thought it had no choice but to have a .cpl, but apparently I was incorrect.

    Or if i could find out its legitimate underlying name to hide it with group policy. Though im not sure thats even possible depending on how it was added.

    Its beyond me as well or i wouldnt be here :) Thank you very much for your perserverence thus far :)

    Well good luck. Maybe somebody on the Intel Forum knows the secret. You've probably already been there.

    tyty.

    yea i added a post there. we'll see what happens. its a shame everyones about pushing the bloat and the data collection these days.

    You want it in there? fine, make it optional.

    Im not a radical against all telemtry. Far from it. I opted into nvidias based on the fact i imagine most people opt out, and when I have issues, i want them solved so whatever data they collect, if it helps with that so be it.

    In this case, theres an opt in box in the software, why have it in the control panel as well? Imagine the shitshow if efveryone added their telemtry to the control panel.

    intel should know better.

    so at current, as i hoped wouldnt be the case - my options are no gaudy useless control panel entry, or no xtu.

    meh!
