atieclxx.exe file purpose and description:
atieclxx.exe is a program that was most likely installed by you sometime after you purchased your computer, but it may also arrive on your computer as preinstalled software. The exact disk location is also listed below if you wish to verfiy it is not spyware, as many spyware and virus programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive. This is a hardware program called AMD external events client module. This atieclxx.exe software is from AMD and it is hardware related. Most of you will find this on your computer if you run Windows Vista or Windows 7 or later, and it will appear in your ctrl-alt-del tasklist as it runs as a driver file. People confuse atieclxx.exe with atiedxx.exe as they look the same in the tasklist. This software is considered safe, and is not virus or spyware related software. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)
Actual file or task name: (Note that you can view the entire list here)
This is an exe file.
Where is the file or folder located on my computer?
This file will be found at "C:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository path.
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, atieclxx.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 atieclxx.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
