Try to locate the file then upload it to:
Wait for awhile to see the scan result. If infected delete it.
Have you checked the properties of the file to see who owns the exe file and when it was created?
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 !
