About igfxem.exe issue

Igfxem.exe determines how other programs will access certain software configurations. This process is associated with the Intel Common User Interface Module. In some situations, Igfxem.exe conflicts with the software and this, in turn, leads to a reboot of the processor. In addition, some virus programs pretend to be the Igfxem.exe process (have the same name) and are the main cause of constant high CPU utilization. Of course, this fact affects the operation of the computer and can bring you a lot of trouble. Therefore, it is time to deal with the “igfxem.exe high CPU” problem and not forget about the security of your system. Let's get started!

1. Use antivirus

Since a high disk load can be caused by a virus, it is wise to check the disk for malware and viruses first. System scans can be done using the built-in Windows Defender tool or using your third-party application.

For greater confidence in the scan results, you can run two anti-virus solutions one by one. After a complete system check, restart your computer and check if the “igfxem virus” problem remains.

2. Update drivers

Visit Intel Download Center, and download the appropriate driver. Then you need to unpack the file to the desired location.

Now press Windows Key + R and in the Run window enter devmgmt.msc and click OK.

Next, expand the Display Adapters section and right-click on the Intel Graphics option. Next, select "Update driver software," click "Search my computer for drivers.'' Then click on the button Browse and go to the place where the unzipped driver files were.

Click Next and restart your computer.

You can fix the igfxem.exe high CPU usage problem by updating your version of the Intel graphics driver.

This will update your GPU to the latest drivers.

If you are not satisfied with the manual search for drivers, you can do it automatically. To do this, you can always use third-party solutions, in this case, the drivers will be updated in just a couple of clicks.

3. Work with process

If you are still having problems with igfxem.exe and are concerned about high CPU usage, you can stop the igfxem.exe process by clearing the task in the Task Manager.

So, press Ctrl + Shift + Esc, and this way you can open the task manager.

In the Processes section, find igfxem.exe, right-click it and select the End task option. Close the Task Manager dialog box.

In addition, you can still block the Igfxem.exe process from starting at computer startup.

To do this, in the Run dialog box, enter msconfig and press Enter /OK to open the system configuration.

Open the Services tab and go to the igfxem module.

Uncheck it and confirm the changes by clicking on OK and Apply.

4. Delete pointless processes

If high disk utilization still bothers you, then turn all unnecessary processes in the Task Manager.

To do this, on the Processes tab, find resources that are taking up a lot of CPU and terminate them.

However, remember not to interfere with some core processes of the operating system. For example, this applies to the explorer.exe and winlogon.exe processes.
