    I've just noticed this thing was running among other services on my Windows 7 system.
    It's located in c:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility\, but I never installed it. It's not even showing up in Programs and features.
    The folder was created on 10.1., actually along with Intel(R) Integrated Clock Controller Service, which I never installed either.
    Does anyone have any idea where could it come from?

    I have no idea were you got it from but it's a utility to OC Intel based CPU's.
    I assume you have one, if you want to remove/stop it you have two options I can think of.
    1) just stop the two services and delete the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility" and "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Integrated Clock Controller Service"
    2) The cleaner way would be to DL as close as the version you have now, install it and then uninstall, it "should" uninstall clean, as it has when I have done it. (you could also use a uninstaller app like Geekuninstaller to clean up anything left over).

    You wouldn't happen to have MSI MB, I think they use XTU as there OC software, but I would imagine its name has changed to something MSI, but you never know.

    Nope, no MSI hardware here.
    I haven't installed anything on that date, so it's really puzzling. Do you think it's possible it came with Windows update? I see KB4054998 was installed then - but it's only related to .NET.

    It can be that you was installing some software and just did not notice a checkbox which suggested also installation of this Intel`s utility.

    99% sure it would never come from WU, there no reason, it's a niche item for OC and benchmarking.

    Nope. I specifically wrote I didn't install anything on that day. A Windows update KB was installed though, but I don't think it's related.
    I don't get it really. Weird stuff.

    It didn't come with a windows update. Just uninstall it and stop worrying about it.

    Bad but inevitable joke - time to go to psychiatrist?
    Sorry, could not resist. Are you sure nobody else has access to your PC?

    PS Btw, you can go to folder with mentioned tool and check the date of creation (not the date of modification) for files.

    right, here's default path of exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility\Client\XtuUiLauncher.exe"
    were you can check version, details.

    Do you have XTU show up in start menu list?

    No, it was just the service. The program itself wasn's there. That makes it even more weird.

    So what is the time of creation for the file of this service? It should tell you when exactly it got into your Windows.

    I don't know, I already deleted it. The date was enough information.
    I guess I'll reinstall Windows when I feel like it and keep an eye out.

    As long as the XTUservice.exe and ICCproxy.exe are not running and on system, nothing can happen.
    If you look here "C:\Intel\Logs\IntelWdt.log" , ACPl.log and IntelICCS.log you can see when and what was installed, along with how many times.

    You could also use logs to remove every part, driver wise, but I don't see that being necessary.

    I have the same thing just showed up out of no where. My hunch was the new version of nzxt cam. Do you use nzxt cam?
