What is Logi_MwX.Exe?

Developed by Logitech, Logi_MwX.Exe is an executable file associated with Logitech’s Mouseware. It is designed to act as a support for extra mouse buttons. It is a non-system process, hence qualifies as a third-party software.

You can access the Windows Task Manager to view the amount of CPU, memory, and the disk used by the Logi_MwX.Exe process. To launch Windows Task Manager, press Ctrl + Shift + Delete simultaneously, then click on Task Manager.

Is Logi_MwX.Exe a Legit File?

This application launches during system reboot and continues to run on the background. When you plug in a Logitech mouse, that is when you can be able to identify the process in the Windows Task Manager. You can find the Logitech Launcher in “C:\Windows.” At this moment, it’s safe to say the file is legit and can be kept in your system. However, it is important to double-check it with a recently updated anti-malware tool. Using an anti-malware tool, you can capture the latest malicious programs. This tool is especially useful these days because malicious software developers tend to use legit file names to conceal their virus in your system.

Should Logi_MwX.Exe Be Removed?

The Logi_MwX.Exe process is related to Logitech Launcher Application and is associated with Mouseware software. This is a process that shouldn’t take much of CPU power. However, if you identify this process consuming more CPU power than the usual, then you are likely dealing with an outdated driver or a malicious program. Therefore, you need an updated anti-malware to scan the file and decide if it’s safe to keep or must be removed.

Expert Tip: For smoother PC performance, consider using a PC optimization tool. It handles junk files, incorrect settings, and harmful apps. Make sure it's right for your system, and always check the EULA and Privacy Policy.

The main symptom that the process is a malicious file is high usage of CPU power. But again, you should always double-check the legitimacy of the process before terminating it.

So, how did your PC get infected? In most cases, malicious programs enter the system through software bundling or as infected files. They can also be obtained via corrupted documents such as PDFs attached to emails or other communication platforms such as Facebook.

Malicious Logi_MwX.Exe from Insecure Email Attachments

If you have confirmed that the file is malicious, there is a chance that you got it through an infected email attachment. Infected emails usually look safe and genuine as they will appear in your main inbox instead of the spam folder. However, the high risk comes into opening a suspicious email that you don’t relate to or haven’t verified its sender. Dangerous emails are the ones that come with attachments. Therefore, if you receive an email, even from a familiar address, you must always check if the email subject goes in hand with the attached file.

The best way to verify the sender is by responding to the email and seeing if you can hold a conversation. If the email wasn’t auto-generated with malicious scripts, you must be able to hold a conversation with the sender. Moreover, when chatting with someone, pay attention to typos as well as grammatic errors, as most of the cybercriminals do not pay attention to such because they will be in a rush. Most importantly, evaluate the level of professionalism and request to be connected to a different department. If it’s a real service or company, there shouldn’t be a problem getting transferred.

In brief, this is what you should check in an email before opening or downloading an attachment:

  • Verify if the sender is human.
  • Verify the company represented by the sender.
  • Run an anti-malware scanner before downloading any attachments even from a trusted sender.

To remove a malicious Logi_MwX.Exe file, you need a reputable anti-malware tool. These security tools will assist in determining the real purpose of the file.
