Overview

IDT Audio is a software program developed by IDT. The most common release is 1.0.6425.0, with over 72% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The programs's main executable is sttray64.exe and has been seen to consume an average CPU of less than one percent, and utilizes about 2.9 MB of memory. The setup package generally installs about 82 files and is usually about 34.98 MB (36,677,212 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 58% of users of IDT Audio come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Germany.
