What is lexpps.exe? Should I remove it?

lexpps.exe is the file that usually is launching processes and triggering applications

lexpps.exe is the process launching piece that normally should be related to printing or scanning software on the machine. This file is a part of drivers for printers, published by Lexmark International company. It is used in the network to access the printer from the remote computers. This process can cause system errors, but if you use the printer in the network, you have to keep this process running. However, due to common file types, malicious actors can use this piece to mask the malware processes.

In such cases and if you don't want to share your printer, it is recommended to disable the lexpps.exe process and prevent it from starting automatically.
