File purpose and description:
Ati2mdxx.exe is a program that comes most likely was on your computer when you first purchased it. This exe program is from ATI, and it is hardware related as it interacts with your ATI video card. See the proper disk location below. This allows you to alter and adjust your video settings easier, and this process is only required if you are using an ATI video card. Most people today use ATI or NVIDIA video cards, so it is common to have this process running. This is not considered spyware or virus related. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

This is an executable program.
File or folder location:

Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, ati2mdxx.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of ati2mdxx.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
