What’s RUXIMIH.exe (Reusable UX Interaction Manager)? Is it safe or a virus?

RUXIMICS.exe is specifically engineered to activate the "Run full-screen" functionality, which is essential for the optimal performance of certain legacy applications. This feature is a boon for older software, ensuring they operate seamlessly in a modern computing environment.

The primary objective of RUXIMICS.exe is to enhance the user experience by fine-tuning the display settings and input mechanisms tailored for fullscreen use. By doing so, it addresses compatibility issues that might arise due to the advancements in display technology and operating systems, ensuring that these applications not only run smoothly but also maintain their intended user interface and functionality.

Furthermore, RUXIMICS.exe contributes to preserving the utility and relevance of legacy applications, allowing users and organizations to continue benefiting from their investments in software that might otherwise become obsolete. It achieves this by providing a bridge between the past and present computing environments, making it an invaluable component of the Windows ecosystem for those relying on older software solutions.

While researching this issue, I found a user on the Microsoft forum who said this .exe was used to cause full-screen spam messages.

On the Microsoft forum, the user reports experiencing unwanted full-screen pop-ups from HP, which they attribute to the RUXIM (Reusable UX Interaction Manager), also referred to as "Campaign Manager" in the Task Manager. These intrusive pop-ups lack the usual window controls, leaving the user with options only to "remind me later" or "shop now". The user navigates away from these pop-ups using alt-Tab and closes the window from the taskbar.

I read that the user in the forum is seeking advice on two fronts: firstly, how to stop these pop-ups from occurring, and secondly, how to access and possibly edit the event scheduler queue that triggers these pop-ups.

Nobody seemed to be able to assist him, besides killing this executable. Another user confirmed this same activity on Lenovo hardware.

The signature on the executable should have been verified through a third party whose job it is to make sure the entity is who it says it is. Find an unsigned executable?
