Useless junk, also creates background activity that messes with scores

From what I understand mine still runs IE in low integrity mode while yours completely turns off UAC. Yours is probably better, I'll evaluate on next rebench and update

Fixed, it was in the wrong section anyway, belongs to user-specific
I don't know if it's intended to do this or I'm having a separate issue but after trying these tweaks my windows defender is completely disabled and portions of my Malwarebytes are not working properly namely the real time protection elements.

I don't know if this is just a coincidence , since I don't know that it directly relates to these tweaks , but I'm just going to restore from an image I have for just such a situation.

@W1zzard

Why don't you create an app that can allow the user to just click and bench, then click and be back to normal?

Thanks for sharing thou :respect:

I bench pretty good and for the last couple years stopped bothering with tweaks. They don't seem to affect benches anymore. Some of the tweaks you linked are useful in general though so thanks for that.

@W1zzard

Why don't you create an app that can allow the user to just click and bench, then click and be back to normal?

Thanks for sharing thou :respect:
These tweaks are for my VGA test system setup, not some kind of world record benching.

I just put them here so other people can find and use them, no plans to make any kind of app.

I think they can all be undone with commands or through gui.

Don't just blindly run the script. Look at it, pick the items you want, leave out the other ones.

The Regedit change W1zzard is using above works for me. Startisback++ used to be able to prevent Cortana background process from running now it's just "perform shell liposuction."
