This is for a Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 chip on a Lenovo P50. The driver for the wireless chip keeps posting this to the Application Event Log every 9-11 seconds:
Event ID: 7023
Content: 7077 - Intel proprietary
It's cluttering my event log and making it difficult to find anything useful.
I have the latest version of the driver (20.30.1).
Is there any way to turn off this event logging? Or can it be removed in the next version?
As of today 5/29/2018, the latest driver version available through Windows update is 18.104.22.168, which is spamming the System event log. Rolling back to 22.214.171.124 solves the problem.
My NUC updated to Windows 1803 and now I cannot roll back to 126.96.36.199 I can try to install it manually but yet more work for me...
Please Intel correct this.
Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software version 20.60.0 has been released. Please install the new driver package and let us know if the events keep showing up with the same frequency:

We are glad to know the issue was resolved with the latest driver update.
If you face this type of issue, please update the driver as first troubleshooting step.
I would love to say that this is fixed, but downloading the 20.60 drivers and attempting to install gives me the message "Installation Blocked. The software package cannot be installed on your system." 20.50, of course, is installed just fine.
I can install just the 20.60 drivers, but ProSet constantly installs itself at version 20.50 so then there is a mismatch. No matter how many times I uninstall it, after next reboot something installs it again (and I have driver installation turned off in Windows Update).
Once you download https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27849/Wireless-Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-... Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows® 10 version 20.60.0, make sure you run the installer as administrator, and that you are using the right version on your OS (32 or 64 bit). Then follow the steps for a https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000022173/network-and-i-o/wireless-networki... Clean Installation of Wireless Drivers, it is very important to remove the previous driver first.
Let us know if the clean installation helps.
I'm running driver version 188.8.131.52 (clean installed) of the wireless driver on a Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 that came with a Lenovo IdeaCentre 700-25ISH. I'm having the problem described here, just with event 7021. Every so often it flips out completely and spams up my system logs. I've tried several different driver iterations and they've done this same thing. Is there anything that can be done to stop the telemetry from spamming?
Since installing 20.70, the telemetry has been behaving itself for the most part, with the only real spam occurrence being that it goes nuts if I'm disconnected without turning the wifi off. I can live with that.
Here is the way to reduce the telemetry spam by 95% in the Event Viewer:
1) Disable Wake options:
Right click on the Intel Wireless Connection or the connection you are using under Network Connections in Control Panel, and then select Properties. Click Configure. Click the Advanced tab:
- Select Wake on Magic Packet. Choose Disabled from the Value menu.
- Select Wake on Pattern Match. Choose Disabled from the Value menu.
2) Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP:
Right click on the Intel Wireless Connection or the connection you are using under Network Connections in Control Panel, and then select Properties. Select the Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and then click the Properties button. Click the Advanced button under the General tab. Click the WINS tab. Click the Disable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP button. Click Ok.
3) Disable NetBIOS in Services:
Right click on Start button. Click Computer Management. Click Services under Services and Application. Double click TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper. Choose Startup type Disabled. Click Ok.
Enjoy less spam!
This has NOT been fixed in ANY of the driver versions until now. The only workaround is to completely disable event logging if you don't want that spam. Fix your stuff and test your drivers before releasing. Stop releasing buggy stuff!!!
To disable all of this constant event log spam, shell out to the DOS prompt and paste in the following:
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\System\Netwtw06" /v TypesSupported /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0 /f
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\System\Netwtw10" /v TypesSupported /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0 /f
This disables all of the event logging from your Intel wireless device.
Whiney Buttwipes: "But it's a bad idea to disable all the logging!!!"
Me: "You shoulda thought about that BEFORE you started spamming the event log with useless crap!"
