Hello BrainyTehBrain :)

IgfxTray
Quick access to the control panel via a System Tray icon for graphics based upon the Intel chipsets (ie, i810). These chipsets are often included on motherboards. Available via Start -> Settings -> Control Panel.

hkcmd
Installed by the Intel 810 and 815 chipset graphic drivers. Not necessary to run system.

For more see Startups listed in StartUpLite

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask and someone will assist you :)

Thanks :)

@malwaredestroyer, I'm running XP

So Igfxtray is pretty useless because you can do the same thing with control panel
And hkcmd is useless overall?

Correct, you can still access it through Control Panel

And hkcmd is useless overall?


Still useful just not necessary at start-up to run windows

Adobe Gamma Loader
Adjusts monitor colours across all programs, including Photoshop. It is needed by some graphics professionals who want their monitor calibrated. Most home users will not need it.


This will be a user choice. You can disable it, but if you notice any difference in your graphics display-re-enable

I generally leave them be as they seem to have no effect on system start time or resource usage and I have needed to access Intel's tray app on rare occasions to change a setting or two so it's proven to be somewhat handy.
