    What is Driver pmxdrv.sys?


    Autoruns shows the driver pmxdrv.sys is loaded. It is described as a PAIPTAC Driver but there is no other information (see below). A Google search doesn't reveal what it is. Does anyone know what this driver is for?

    Internet search reveals that it's anti-malware. See

    Thanks. At least that link shows the publisher is Intel. How hard can it be for Intel to insert details in the file so we can work out what the file is for?

    That would make it too easy for us. LOL. Merry Christmas.
