What is LMab1err.EXE?

The genuine LMab1err.EXE file is a software component of Lexmark Status Messenger by Lexmark International.
"Lmab1err.exe" is a Lexmark background Windows service, starting when Windows does, and part of Lexmark's Status Monitor Center software for all models of Lexmark printers and scanners, which controls alerts about supplies, (paper and toner), error message logs, and in certain cases tells how to resolve problems. It installs in "C:\Program Files\Lexmark\Error App." Uninstalling the Status Monitor Center is not advised except if installing an updated version. Use the Control Panel's "Uninstall a Program" applet. If the printer or MFP is not communicating with the computer, firewall problems may be responsible.
