This has been asked before /message/511663# 511663 here, however I was asked to start a new thread on this. I'm having the the Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 control panel window showing up after booting Windows -- not always but most of the times. The solution suggested in the thread I linked above does not work for me. It seems there is a new feature in Windows 10, re-opening all windows at boot that have been open at shutdown time. However, in my case the window does also show after it was definitely not opened at shutdown time. I tried uninstalling Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 from Apps & Features altogether, but it seems to be automaticall re-installed at some point. I am working on an installation, starting right into a fullscreen application after startup and I cannot use any additional windows showing up, so I have to find a way to get rid of this. I'm running Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) 1709, Build 16299.15 with an Intel Xeon E5-1630 v4. Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 is of version 22.214.171.1245.

I really appreciate the information provided trough the report; it has been extremely helpful in order to perform research regarding the issue that you are currently facing.
Based on the brief description of your issue, I can see that you are using the latest Intel® Turbo Boost Max 3.0 (126.96.36.1995), please note that this is a generic version for all the compatible Intel ® processors on the market.
While researching the system report, I noticed that your OEM, (DELL*) has optimized our Intel® Turbo Boost Max to be compatible with your board, this optimized version is designed for your system, meaning that the best way to troubleshoot this issue will be by installing their driver, found here:
It shows up as an executable file named Intel ® Turbo Boost Max Technology Driver.

Are you serious? Over there the answers from the Intel Support sound way less optimistic than in this thread here. Basically Intel will develop a new version soon(tm).
