The registry is the place in your computer computer where the configuration information about your computer and your installed programs are saved and stored so that your operating system can access and use them.

Upkeep of the registry is an essential step in maintaining your computers health. Registry errors or malfunctions can include computer crashing, slow performance, and the always annoying Microsoft Windows error messages.

In the event you want to have a lazy day and use another community's hard work, this site has some nice and potent driver packs.

Do you have a bunch of systems that are Intel AMT capable, yet currently set to ASF Manageability mode? If you're looking for a way to remotely switch these over - take a look at the updated Intel vPro Activator Utility in the Intel SCS v6 preview -

If you extract out the Activator directory - the exe and dll files are what you want. Test it out on a system. The command is as follows:
