Microsoft Virtualization-based Security, or VBS, uses hardware virtualization features to create a secure environment which can host a number of security features. One area of vital system resources that VBS must protect from malicious use is processor model-specific registers, or MSRs. In order to provide a robust security platform, MSRs must be protected from misuse from malicious kernel mode code. To enforce this, VBS monitors/controls access to all MSRs and only allow kernel mode code to access MSRs. But MSR access control will cause Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) not work since it cannot access MSR to set/get processor parameter.
In latest Omen Gaming Hub (v1101.2204.3.0), Undervolting/Overclocking/Performance Control will be blocked if Microsoft VBS (Virtualization-Based Security) is enabled.
