Many users running AMD hardware on their computer may encounter the ‘atieclxx.exe’ process. This process is a software component of AMD’s external events. This process is responsible for managing the ATI keyboard shortcut function on your system.
This process is automatically installed on your computer when you run AMD modules on your system. It is also regularly updated and does not take up much space. The size of the executable file is between 470 KB and 1 MB. The location of the file is’C:\Windows\System32′. It will also be installed on your computer if you have an AMD card on your computer. In this case, the AMD card driver installs the executable file.
Atieclxx.exe is not a system process and is connected to your AMD hardware. Your system does not crash when you exit the process. Normally, however, it does not consume many system resources. So it shouldn’t be a problem.
If you want to stop or stop this process, you can disable the parent service. The procedure is as follows:
- Press Win + R to open the Run window and enter the command services.msc. Press Enter to open the Service Manager.
- Locate and right-click the AMD External Events Utility in the Service Manager. Select Properties.
- Click on the Stop button to finish it. Then change the start type to Disabled.
- Click Apply, then OK to save the settings. Restart the system.
