intelppm.sys RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have on 2003 server R2 SP2 running in VMware.  This server has always been virtual, running Intel processor.

    At idle, the System process is running between 30-60% of CPU.  I have ran kernrate, which shows intelppm having 61% of Total Hits for the Kernel.

    I applied Hotfix from Article 941838.  My System process is still running at the high rate CPU at idle.

    The CPU driver properties shows driver version 5.2.3790.3959.

    Driver Details shows file version 5.2.3790.4143

    What does the intelppm.sys do? I have read a few articles that do not pertain to Server 2003, that suggest disabling via registry.  I do not get BSOD or Events recorded in Event Viewer.

    The main issue, is that backups are failing.
