How To Prevent The Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Software From Launching On Startup

We have had a number of customers report that after installing recent Windows updates, they are now seeing a pop up for the Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 software on each boot of the system. The pop up looks similiar to this and can be very annoying:

If you are being plagued by the Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3. 0 software pop up, please see below for additional instructions on how to disable the pop-up from launching at each startup of your system.

Please keep in mind that although you will be disabling the pop up, the Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology software WILL still be running in the background, which is good news if you are actually using the software and inconsequential if you are not.

How To Disable The Pop Up

Right click the Windows 10 start menu.


Select Computer Management.



On the left hand side of the Computer Management screen, find the listing for Task Scheduler

And click the chevron > to the left of the listing to expand the sublistings.



Select the listing for Task Scheduler Library and it will populate multiple listing in the center portion of the Computer Management screen.


Scroll through these listings to find the one that says Intel(R) Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Technology Application Launcher.


Right click that listing and select End.




Then right click it again and select Disable.



Reboot the system and you should observe that the pop up no longer launches on startup!
