I have exactly the same problem. I have updated the bios, but my DX79SI does not seem to support Intel Management Engine Interface, as this option did not exist in the bios settings.Martin said:Please try to upgrade the "Intel(R) Management Engine Interface" driver or the BIOS if that helps.
I tried downloading and installing the latest Management Engine driver compatible with my board, DX78SI, but I had the same problem.Martin said:I'm afraid, there's currently no option available to disable this function. Currently disabling the Intel Management Engine driver in Device Manager should allow HWiNFO to get thru.
Anyway, it seems this is a serious issue, so I have to check this in more detail.
Can you please try to install the latest Management Engine driver from Intel: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=management engine driver
and let me know if that helped.
