I recently purchased TuneUp Utilities 2012, and one of its recommendations for optimization is the following:
"We recommend that you switch this service (IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules) to 'Manual' instead of 'Automatic' startup. This will speed up the system startup process and still leave Windows and other programs the option of starting up the service if and when its needed."
However, every time i switch to 'Manual', it reverts back to 'Automatic', so i decided to change it to 'Disabled' and avoid having to correct this every time i log on, so my question is why do i need it at all if i dont connect to a corporate network?
Also, does it affect downloading torrents?
