The WinRing0 files should be left in the RealTemp folder. If you do not have Administrator privileges then the Start Up folder method will not work in Windows 7. You will need to run it using the Task Scheduler. If you follow the directions in the link that burebista provided it should work. If you are still having problems BongoKongo then contact me so we can try to figure this out. Here's the latest version of RealTemp along with a few other utilities including i7 Turbo. I'm not sure if that will make any difference but it never hurts to try.
