TuneUp Utilities 2009 increases my server FPS
We all know that media player increases your server fps in windows but I just stumbeled upon something weird. I was running TuneUp Utilities 2009 on my server and when I went into it's StartUp Manager my server fps increased by 100, from 400 to 500. When I shut it off fps went down to 400 again so it's definetely the app doing it. I don't even need to run media player anymore..

Picture proof: - Nothing in the background - Media Player in the background - StartUp Manager in the background

Anyone got an explanation?
Don't quote me on this, but I believe the only reason media player even does anything on windows is because it enables high resolution timing when its open which increases server FPS. My guess would be that the tuneUP utility is also doing the same thing. Instead of using windows media player why don't you just use srcds fpsbooster? There are plenty out there for download and from what I have read it uses less resources than WMP and gets good FPS boost for windows.
