The genuine ICCProxy.exe file is a software component of Intel® Integrated Clock Controller Service - Intel® ICCS by Intel Corporation.
Intel’s Integrated Clock Controller Service (“ICCProxy.exe”) is a Windows service and can be disabled under “Services” using “msconfig,” but this should only be done if familiar with the Intel® chipsets used in the motherboard. It should reside in a subfolder of “C:\Program Files\Intel” that has the program’s long name as the subfolder. Use of ICCS began with Intel’s Platform Controller Hub (PCH) family of microchips in 2008. The ICCS allows programs to access the base clock (BCLK) and two graphics-related clocks (DPCLK and DPNSCLK) in the PCH. Graphics drivers use ICCS for “clock bending” of the latter two to reduce screen flicker and disabling “ICCProxy.exe” may increase flicker, (but not in 8 Series PCH or later). If a GIGABYTE motherboard is present, “ICCProxy.exe” is installed by several of their utilities, including “Easy Tune 6” which allows overclocking. Intel was founded in 1968 by two engineers from Fairchild.

Important: Some malware camouflages itself as ICCProxy.exe, particularly when located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder. Therefore, you should check the ICCProxy.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security. This was one of the Top Download Picks of The Washington Post and PC World.
A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with ICCProxy. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic 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 6resmon 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 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
To help you analyze the ICCProxy.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: ASecurity Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
