lms.exe file purpose and description:
LMS.exe is a software module that may have been installed on your computer when you purchased it. The exact disk location where LMS.exe should be stored on your PC is shown to you below so you can verfiy it is not spyware or virus related, as many virus programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive. This LMS.exe file is from Intel and this file is called the Intel Local Management Service. Always check the proper disk location of your programs if you are concerned that they may be spyware or malware. Intel software is common on computers as many chips used today are Intel brand.

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, lms.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 lms.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.
