How do I stop the Intel® Graphics Command Center from running automatically when Windows starts?

I want to be able to run it when I want to. I'm not a gamer, the nearest I get to intense graphics is YouTube, consequently I don't want this slowing Windows startup or running all the time.

I use Nvidia graphic card. I have deleted the driver in Device Manager and disable it in BIOS. Also, I don't see it in the startup tab, but it is still running.
At startup, it takes high CPU and rams then goes to idle state as the picture shows.

Hi @LTrần2 

When you have question, you should always open new thread instead of writing in old thread. So, open thread of yours and I'll and other members will help you.

People like to add on to someone else's question.  It's a psychological thing ... if someone else had the same problem, then you don't feel so dumb to ask the same question!

Hi @ClariceStarling 

This thread is closed and not monitored any more. In addition although the problem may looks similar the solution could be other. Any way, I understand that @LTrần2  have read the solutions proposed here and it didn't help. Therefore is necessary to open a new thread, describe the system and the problem. For example I don't understand what does it mean "I have deleted the driver in Device Manager and disable it in BIOS"? In this thread we are giving advice how to disable the Intel Graphics Command Center (IGCC). IGCC is not a driver, it is an application, can't be deleted from DM or disabled in BIOS.

It's ok, although this's an old thread it is the first that people can get after google searching. But your opinion is also good, I will consider it. Anyways, thank you for your help, I have remembered the best old solution-DDU graphic remover. It works.

(Same thing can be done in Windows Settings> Apps >  Startup)

Thank you very much. I had tried using Autoruns to find the startup entry but, for some reason, it didn't appear in the list (or I didn't recognize it).
