    AI Suite is a Utility for monitoring your Temperatures and Voltages and Speeds, and it allows you to manage settings for certain things.

    It is a fairly large program, 300 MB, so I imaging it puts tendrils all through your system.

    If you are merely a user and not a Tech, you really have no need for it, you can use Speccy from Piriform to monitor your temps.

    Unless you have a specific use for AI Suite, you should remove it.

    Also, and I just checked, the program is not compatible with Windows 8 so I don't know how you even got it in?

    yes I can see them in task manager as running.
    What I want is to disable update application EzUpdt.exe, the application doesn't have settings or anything like this and I don't see an uninstaller for it. With windows 7 I could see AI in msconfig.exe.
    for some reason windows 8.1 doesn't show all app that actually are in startup

    Go ahead and post a screenshot showing all programs in your Control Panel -> Programs and Features to see if we may be able to spot it listed as something else.

    Check msconfig>General tab>Selective startup>check 'Load startup items' is check marked.

    @XweAponX I use ASUS AI for fan control. I use a version that is compatible with windows 8.
    @Brink I have only few software installed, ASUS AI is in the list but EZ update not.

    @Edwin it is check marked.

    I was not looking for a work around, I wanted to see all startup apps. It seems with wonderful Win 8 you can't.

    Thank you all for the support

    This would an issue with the program and it's developer and not Windows 8 though.

    Windows 8 will show you your startup apps just as previous versions of Windows as always done, but in this case, you got this running from a setting, service, or however by this program.

    You might check to see if this was installed as a service that you could stop and disable.
    In addition, you might check in Task Scheduler (taskschd.msc) to see if there may be a task for this set to run at startup/sign in that can be disabled.

    you are right, asus AI related applications appear as services so I can't disable them from there.
    different from win& but ok...
    thank you

    You got it to work? I tried installing the suite and then the apps separately, and none of them would go in. Hm, that is odd - But you installed it your self, it did not come with your computer?

    soberspine,

    If you kill (End Process) the EzUpdt.exe process in Task Manager, does it require UAC approval to do so?

    If not, then you might see if creating a .bat file using the commnd below, and placing the .bat file in your Startup (shell:startup) folder. The command will kill this for you. Placing it in your Startup will have it killed automatically for you at startup/sign-in. This could be a good workaround for you.

    taskkill /F /im EzUpdt.exe

    I solved my issue with ezupdt.exe. I re installed asus suite without update application.
    but it good to know where to find start up application if they are not listed in taskmanager-> startup.

    thanks again
