Disabling Hardware Acceleration

On virtual machines, even though there is no vGPU in the host, VMware tools still have a driver that looks like a GPU to the OS and the applications. Making a few simple tweaks to the registry, group policy, or ProfileUnity to turn off hardware acceleration to core applications on non vGPU virtual machines can result in a CPU reduction on your host operating system.

The attached PDF will guide you through disabling hardware acceleration either through GPO, Registry, or ProU for the following applications:

  1. Google Chrome
  2. Mozilla Firefox
  3. Microsoft Office
  4. Internet Explorer

The attached TXT file is a registry module import for ProU. Please remove the .txt to make it a .json for import.
