Could" persistence" / Igfxpers.exe be trouble?

by tobeach / June 13, 2005 4:14 PM PDT

I recently installed and un-installed some updated drivers from Intel. The performance seemed worse with new ones. A day or so later I noticed a new checked entry in Config>start up: Displayed name: Persistence/ file name:Igfxpers.exe. I thought it related to known Intel files : Igfx Tray/ Igfx.exe.
I didn't like hints behind word "persistence" so I Googled it and found very little. One of the few was a Hijack This posting site and in response he instructed poster to remove this item with HJT.
Enough for me to ask here for opinions. (Note: This item was not installed by original Intel Drivers I installed 1/2 year ago.) Thanks in Advance ! Happy

1st being a prefetch file & 2nd being the Exe. in system 32. Should have thought of properties myself !! Dumb, dumb!
Copyrighted to Intel to 2004. Listed as common user interface: persistence module. Guess it's ok (now will decide if I need it at all since it's part of the removed NEW drivers). Thanks again! Happy
