Neutral, it's hard to find out, which kind of file is mallicious.

if you open file location you go immediately to the system 32 folder so i deem it as not dangerous........also im looking at my task manager right now and im at 30% cpu with the program running so i dont know why these people are blaming this file
   
All are right about Intel Graphics. It's completely safe, unless compromised by other sources. Have scheduled virus checks, use MalwareBytes, stay away from suspicious sites and links, and it should remain safe.

This file is responsible for popup menu on your graphic card: each time you press RMB ( right mouse button ) extra functions will appear apart those who are standard. Nothing to worry about: if u don't want it to pop simply change the name of the file....

I had igfxext.exe using 400MB, igfxsrvc.exe using 1.5GB and igfxpers.exe using 6K of RAM. They were all in System32 with a date 18 months old. I killed the processes with no negative impact. Anytime firefox is not my biggest memory hog I know that there is a problem :)

This has now started to cause me problems when playing Civ5 (G&K) it never reared its head prior to this new patch/add-on for this game and now it constantly causes the game to crash. No idea how to resolve this issue at all. This is not a trojan horse or virus.. It's used to run your on-board graphics and comes from Intel!
