Hi guys,

May I know can I disable Intel® Turbo Boost Technology Monitor & Intel® Management Engine Components or not? Are they useful? If I disable both of them will cause any bad effect? :huh:

I'm a new Windows 7 user. :)

Have A Great DAY!
Best Regards

Hi Allan,

No. Not at all. I'm just wondering what is the use of both program and will they impact my computer performance?

Best Regards :thumbsup:

Intel® Turbo Boost Technology Monitor as its name says, it's just a monitor, "which provides a simple display of increase in processor frequency when Intel® Turbo Boost technology is active" (http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-031295.htm).
It works as a sidebar gadget.
Unless, you really enjoy watching "increase in processor frequency" (:)), you can disable it.

Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) is basically needed, if you need to access your computer remotely for whatever reason.
If you do access your computer from the outside, you need it, if you don't, you can disable it.

That tool is mostly designed for IT people, who have to deal with some bigger number of computers.
Instead of approaching each one individually, they can access those computers remotely from their office.

Oh I see... I'm an average user, I deal with about 2~3 computers only so I will disable it. Thanks Broni!! :thumbsup:

Best Regards.
