If you find Intel QRTD errors, see this Intel page:

Can you tell me if this is causing any problems to my computer, or am I simply getting the error message?
I didn't even know I was getting the error until I went looking for something else.

Let me know if you recommend that I disable it and what effects that will have.

Are you using Intel® Viiv" Technology? See this Intel page for a description of what it does.


As far as I can tell from the Intel site, disabling the QRTD means the Viiv" Technology will stop working.

I don't see any reason for me to have Viiv, so I will take the advice and disable.
Thanks for your help!
