The file driver.dll is a process connected with the graphic video cards of ATI Technologies. ATI Technologies Inc. got its name from its founding name Array Technologies Incorporated. The company is a major supplier and designer of graphic processing units, video display cards and motherboard chips.
It was founded in Canada in 1985 but was recently bought in 2006 by the micro-processor manufacturer Advance Micro Devices or more popularly known as AMD. ATI is known as the main competitor of NVIDIA in supremacy in the graphics display card. The well known product of ATI is its highly successful and popular Radeon series.
The process driver.dll is part of the installation engine for support software and drivers for the ATI graphic display cards. More specifically the process driver.dll is a display driver component of the installation software. The process driver.dll is a required process by the installation software since it will not function without it.
The file driver.dll controls the initialization of the installation software so that it can continue in installing the needed or the attached driver to the operating system. It installs the ATI graphic display driver in the users’ computer that has the ATI made graphic display card hardware.
The hardware needs the drivers installed so that the system can use it as well for the hardware to function properly. Without the drivers the ATI made graphic display cards will definitely not function. The installation process will not commence when you do not have ATI graphics card installed in your system.
After installation the process driver.dll will automatically unload in your system’s memory. It is exclusively used by the ATI installation process.
The process driver.dll does not reside in the background of the system since it is only loaded during installation of the display driver. It does not use any network devices to accomplish its function.

What is a DLL?
Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.
DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.
When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.
Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
