If you’ve noticed igfxpers.exe process running in the Task Manager under Processes list, from its name, it’s difficult to understand which program it belongs to. Don’t worry! It’s neither a virus related-one nor system related process. This process is from Intel and will be installed with Nvidia graphics card drivers specifically or with other graphics cards for Intel-based chip set motherboards which was the case with us.
Use of igfxpers.exe process
