"Persistence Module - igfxpers.exe" is installed as part of the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver that provides additional configuration options. It automatically installs the boot menu, and launch each time you start your computer.

Although it is a trusted application and not malicious adware or spyware, it uses system resources and excessive memory with no benefit. Because it is not necessary for operating the computer, it can be readily removed without affecting the computer components.
