    He talk about the differences in scores with the Intel fixes on/off. Not results from Realtime vs. Normal priority. The results will still be the same:D

    "edit: just disabled it and ran before and after benches. I actually lost points in Cinebench with meltdown and spectre disabled. heh. i'll pass and leave both on"

    How to prevent Microsoft Edge from running on startup in the background:

    One of the most annoying new quirks of Windows 10 Redstone 4 is the fact that Microsoft Edge is loaded in the background every time you start your computer.

    To stop this behaviour:

    1) Press the Windows + R key to launch the run dialogue box

    2) Type gpedit.msc then hit Enter

    3) Navigate to: Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Edge

    4) Set the "Allow Microsoft Edge to pre-launch at Windows startup, when the system is idle, and each time Microsoft Edge is closed" and "Allow Microsoft Edge to start and load the Start and New Tab page at Windows startup and each time Microsoft Edge is closed" to Disabled



    If you do not have Windows 10 Pro (no access to the Group Policy Editor), then here's an alternative way to disable Microsoft Edge from loading automatically on startup:

    1) Open Notepad

    2) Copy paste the below text including the blank line at the end:

    Code:
    rem Prevent Microsoft Edge from starting and loading the Start and New Tab page at Windows startup and each time Microsoft Edge is closed
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\TabPreloader" /v "PreventTabPreloading" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\TabPreloader" /v "PreventTabPreloading" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    
    
    3) Save the file with the following name: Disable Microsoft Edge from running on startup.bat (Note the .bat extension, you don't want to save it as a TXT file but as a BAT file)

    4) Right click on the file you just created and choose Run as Admin

    5) Now reboot and after 3 minutes, launch task manager to verify Microsoft Edge is not running

    Or you can download the batch file I made: Disable Microsoft Edge from running on startup.bat

    Do we need to go a step further by disabling background app of MS edge under Settings -> Privacy > Background Apps?
    EDIT: Looks like MS Edge is removed from list of BG apps under Privacy section.

    Too many FP's and it even flagged my program designed to kill CPUs. So I turned it off. The detection is aggressive. Flags DDU and other "useful" tools.
