This program is a configuration module that is associated with certain hardware products from Shuttle and SCM MicroSystems, such as wireless adapters. (It is from Intel, but in this case, Intel made the software, not the hardware.) It should be considered part of the driver package and not disabled, as terminating it may cause problems with your hardware.

|All comments about 1XConfig.exe: |
| System Tray background task which gets installed by the drivers for Shuttle Technology products (now part of SCM MicroSystems). SCM MicroSystems is an OEM manufacturer - that is, it makes/assembles the original products which are then sold under various badges by other companies (e.g. DataFab,Hewlett-Packard, Apple, etc..). The products include USB card readers, USB CD-Writers, USB Zip or Flash Drives, USB LS-120 drives, etc.. ICONFIG sits in the System Tray and its sole purpose seems to be to provide connection and status info about your USB device. peng|
