    I have been using Windows Defender for a few months now and as far as I know, files and programs have not been disappearing off of my computer. It has not complained about ThrottleStop. Not sure what happened to your computer. I just know that ThrottleStop did not delete itself. That would not make any sense.

    Did you try downloading it from TechPowerUp and running it again? I saw one site recently that added an extra .dll file to the download. It did not look legit.

    You do know that Major Geeks hosts Throttle Stop right? I submit updates to them

    I know that.

    The W1zzard at TechPowerUp signs the exe so I always recommend downloading the version of ThrottleStop that TechPowerUp hosts. Some sites are not hosting this version.

    Edit - I just downloaded TS from MajorGeeks and they are not hosting the signed TechPowerUp version. Using a signed exe probably helps keep some of the antivirus programs happy.

    I’ll give it a shot, I did download it from the link in the first post and hopefully it sticks.
    Love TS and used for a lot of laptops so I’m not giving up.

    Hi guys, especially @unclewebb ! I last wrote the throttlestop guide in 2017 for notebookcheck. I'm going to be updating the guide for my site, Ultrabookreview, and there's a few features that have been added in the last 2 years for sure.

    Personally, the way I use TS has not changed over the last 2 years, but if someone is familiar with the features would like to highlight some of the main changes since then, I would be super appreciative! Thanks much to anyone in advance for any help!

    That's a good one. :D

    Anything else? I particularly need to cover the functional usage of the TPL panel in modern laptops. I haven't bothered messing with that
