There is, actually. Check it out (source, hehe):

Posted by me on 7-25-11:

I just figured out how to make AI Suite II stop starting with Windows (I had to do some careful Googling)! After following these instructions, it will always be on your terms unless you undo these changes. So if you have AI Suite II installed but you don't want it to start with Windows anymore, then follow these instructions:
  1. Open Task Scheduler (in Vista and 7, open the Start Menu, type task scheduler, and then press Enter)
  2. On the far left side, expand Task Scheduler Library
  3. Select "ASUS"
  4. In the middle, you'll see two Tasks named "ASUS AI Suite II Execute", and "ASUS DigiVRM Help"
  5. Right-click them and choose "Disable" (you can select both by holding down either Shift or Ctrl and left clicking them)
  6. Close Task Manager
So now AI Suite II will no longer start with Windows! The best part is that AI Suite II will not automatically undo these changes any time you open it, so now it's just like any other program. You can also Shut Down or Restart while AI Suite II is running, and it will still not cause it to start with Windows.

However, there are still a bunch of processes running in the background! Fortunately, you can easily disable all of them and never have to worry about it! Here's how:
  1. Open Services.msc (open the Start Menu, type services.msc, and then press Enter)
  2. Look for the following services:
    • ASUS Com Service
    • ASUS HM Com Service
    • ASUS System Control Service
  3. Change both "ASUS Com Service" and "ASUS HM Com Service" to Manual.
  4. Change "ASUS System Control Service" to Disabed.
So now when you open AI Suite II, it will still be able to start both "ASUS Com Service" and "ASUS HM Com Service" (both of these start up a few other processes at the same time). I mean, if these were set to Disabled, then you'd get an error.

Note: every single process that gets started by these two services will continue running even after completely exiting AI Suite II. Fortunately, they do not automatically start with Windows! So if you wanted to be in complete control and always stop them right after exiting AI Suite II, then go into Services.msc, right-click the two services we set to "manual", and then choose "Stop".

Although, you'll have to remember to do this every single time if you are a person like me who likes to keep everything under control. hehe

For services use services.msc as TwoCables said.
Msconfig doesn't work for this. Besides, msconfig is not for permanent changes. It is just a diagnostic utility for rooting out problems.

You're very welcome.

Yeah, I'm not impressed by ASUS's software in any way at all. Like, I have their GTX 580 DirectCU II and so I tried the overclocking software it came with, but it was lame (it looked like an amateur made it). So I am still using Afterburner.

So yeah, Ai Suite II: yuck.

The only time I open it is if it will help me answer someone's question somehow.

Just a quicky that you can do to not have to go into services.msc everytime if you want these two services stopped. Just create a little batch file and leave it on your desktop (or where ever you want it). Run the batch file and it will stop both of these services with a simple double-click of the file.

Steps:

  • Click the start menu orb and type in Notepad.exe
  • Copy and paste the following into it
Code:

Code:
Net stop "ASUS Com Service"
Net stop "ASUS HM Com Service"
  • Save the file to the desktop (name it whatever you would like)
  • On the desktop change the file extension from ".txt" to ".bat"
  • Select "Yes" on the pop-up.
There you go! Now when you want those two services to stop just double-click on the batch file that you just created and it will show a cmd application window (black box) that will disappear once both of the services have stopped.

Edit: Oh, and yes you can add any of the services that are listed in the services.msc to your batch file (as long as the OS will let you.... There are some that the OS needs to be running for the OS not to crash) if you find yourself in there stopping them manually all of the time. Just double-click the service that you want to add to your batch file and copy the verbiage to the right of the "Display name:" line and paste it into your batch file. You can even create a separate batch file to start the applications automatically as well by changing "Net stop" to "Net start". Really convenient for running benchmarks!

Cheers!

It's all good.

I don't know. To be honest, I wouldn't even have Ai Suite installed.

I actually wanted to take advantage of the fast charging abilities but sometimes I believe they are gimmicks.

Oh damn.

I don't know if there's any truth to the fast charging abilities, but if there is then I genuinely hope that you get this figured out.

Yeah I dont know either maybe someone can fill it in.

Also the USB Boost 3.0 seems a nice feature but again I have no idea if they actually make a difference.

Otherwise I would dump Asus Suite'2's sorry ass.
