Appears to be a legitimate file when in the Windows\System32 directory. It's for the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Vista/Windows 7. File list info on the driver can be found here:

The "GFXServiceInstall" is listed as a StartUp item under System Configuration. I haven't figured out though if it's something that's preferable to have load at startup or if it's reasonable to disable the process. Anyone have any info on that?

After a bit more research in my particular case, the file is part of the Driver install for the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 version When opening the Device Manager, Display Adapter, and look at property, then Driver TAb, and press the Driver DEtails button, the file is showing as part of the driver. Therefore, I will keep it active.
