    Where did this XTU Service: Intel Extreme Tuning Utility come from?

    jamie71

      hi all I just rebuilt from fresh, ie deleted my partition reformatted and a fresh copy of the latest Windows 10 pro onto my pc

       

      I'm running

      Ryzen 7 1800X

      Gigabyte 370X Gaming 5 Aorus motherboard with 32Gigs 2933 Corsair Ram

      RX Vega 64

       

      so I've been having weird windows issues, today I decided to do a clean boot via Msconfig, the first thing I did was select hide Microsoft services, then I see this

       

      XTU Intel Extreme utility running I mean what the hell

       

      I stopped the service and deleted the reg keys

       

      I've popped over to Reddit and there seems this has happened in the last few days to at least 2 other people running Ryzen machines.

       

      any ideas, I did a full malware scan, plus malware rootkit, both came back clean.
