    The way i got this to work was to run the following in admin command prompt Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON reboot run the fan utility as admin disable ec then close the program. Doing this will allow speed fan to take over will work through reboots but not shutdown. Make sure you have speed fan setup correctly to control your fans. You also may need to disable driver signing via advanced startup to get the driver to install on first run. Would be nice for the utility to save its configuration so one could make a scheduled task to run on login.
