What is igfxpers.exe?
Igfxpers.exe is a process installed with the drivers for Intel integrated graphics. Its purpose is to provide configuration options for Intel integrated graphics chipsets.

This process is not essential to the operation of the system and may be safely disabled or uninstalled. By doing so, however, you will lose the settings that you set up in the configuration utility. If you are using a Tablet PC, you may want to keep this process, as it is responsible for automatically changing your screen resolution so that where you touch on your tablet matches the location of the mouse pointer on the screen.

Dangers of igfxpers
As this is an executable that runs on many systems with Intel wireless, it is possible for virus writers and spyware vendors to disguise their malware as the genuine one.

Some malicious files may be have the same name as this process but be stored somewhere other than in %SystemRoot%\Drivers\[name of graphics chipset]. Other malware may use a name that appears similar to it but has slight differences in spelling or with appended digits. While there are currently no known viruses, Trojans, or adware applications that disguise themselves as this process, you should look out for the presence of this file in an incorrect location or with a slightly different name.

There will typically be only one instance of this process running at a given time on a system. The presence of multiple instances may be an indicator of a malware infection. If you do not have Intel integrated graphics, you should never see it. This would be a sign of a malware infection.

Common problems
  • This process uses too much CPU time
