I found 2 suspicious looking processes in my Windows startup sequence named igfxtray.exe and igfxpers.exe. What are these 2 processes good for?


These two programs are configuration utilities for your NVidia graphics card. You can remove them from your startup sequence if you don't change your card's configuration frequently. I found that my notebook computer automatically switches its graphic card's resolution when I dock it into a docking station with monitor or connect it to an external monitor. It switches from 1024x768 to 1280x1024. When I remove the external monitor it switches back to 1024x768.
These two processes are responsible for this feature.

I suggest to remove these processes only if you don't need the above described feature.

I checked my system before and after updating my video drivers. They were added as part of that process therefore I believe they are real.

It is for Intel graphics typically included on a motherboard 'package'. Not for NVIDIA.

Bob Greene / As recently as September 12, 2012, a geenatmln who identified himself as MikeJ , a scientist/engineer on NT responded, leaving a note of thanks. Is there any way to send email to MikeJ? Or could you send Mike my email address, with a request that he email me?
