This file wastes a lot of CPU power, on my P4 2Ghz it takes about 10% CPU power almost always....
This file runs as a service and is installed as part of your Gravis Joystick or Joypad installation.
Uses only 44k memory and 0% CPU usage. Supports Joystick, but you can start it manually just before gaming, if it's causing problems
this file takes sometimes allmost 80% cpu ussage...
does it stop your joypad working if you remove it?

Best practices for resolving Grxp4exe issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Grxp4exe. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the Grxp4exe.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
