What is PXIMouse? a Virus or Keylogger? Here’s Answer

If you’ve recently spotted PXIMouse in your background processes and worried about its appearance in your system, you are at the right place.

Let me clear first thing first, and it is not a virus or a keylogger. PXIMouse is a PixArt Imaging Inc software/app responsible for displaying mouse pointer animation for specific mice from several brands. Speaking about the software’s keyboard is a crucial part of PC, and these Gaming Keyboards are the best options to go for if you are looking for one.

There are many queries related to PXIMouse being a keylogger and a virus. Most of the users suggested to scan files through virustotal.com and try the scanning system with an antivirus. All of that effort is of no use because it is not a keylogger or a virus (at least that’s what I know). By visiting many online forums and platforms, I searched, and then I am writing this article to make sure that nobody gets its PC hurt by some malware, virus, or a keylogger.

What is PXIMouse?

PXIMouse by Pixart Imaging Inc is a script/software responsible for showing mouse pointer animation on your computer. It is added into background tasks when you plugin certain types of the mouse into your PC/Laptop. Do not disable it or end a process named PXIMouse.exe; otherwise, you might end up having your mouse pointer disabled.

PXIMouse is a Virus?

It is not a virus; to make sure it is not, you can scan it through many online tools and also with your antivirus program. However, all of such effort would be for nothing because it is installed and run when you plugin-specific mouse into your computer. If you remember not having it earlier, and it starts suddenly appearing, you might have changed your mouse or upgraded it to a new one. That is the reason described on many online forums related to the PXIMouse myth. If you were into trouble of thinking it as a virus, don’t worry, it is a safe program for a specific task, as I stated earlier.

If you still have any confusion about this software, do share it in the comment section.
