activEcho Client


activEcho Client is a software program developed by Acronis. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The setup package generally installs about 6 files. Relative to the overall usage of those who have this installed, most are running it on Windows 8. While about 83% of users of activEcho Client come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom.
