    Intel Persistance Module

    What does this do? I disabled it to try to find what is crashing my Vista installation every Friday. Harddisk churns and it crashed with BSOD 12 times and suddenly at 450pm it stopped; now 6:39 and no more problems. Rock solid. What goes on? This is not anything that I schedule or virus protection; nothing of a program I know about.

    Try searching for "persistance module" in Help and Support.
    Maybe someone can help. Maybe someone on either of the other forums (not
    newsgroups) that you have posted the question to can help.

    Process name: persistence Module

    Product: Intel(R) Common User Interface or igfxpers.exe

    Company: Intel Corporation (www.intel.com)

    File: igfxpers.exe

    Apparently has to do with nvidia class video cards and is not necessary. I doubt it is the culprit but I no longer use it.

    I will say this; I had disabled it last weekend and my PC did not crash during the week. Yesterday, I installed an update to the video card, which re-enabled it and the crashes started back. This may be a coincidence. Post hoc ergo propter hoc. A logical fallacy.
