Acer Arcade Deluxe

What is Acer Arcade Deluxe?

Acer Arcade Deluxe is a default program that comes with all Acer computers. It allows users to listen to music, look at photos, watch DVDs, use the webcam and view YouTube and Flickr within a single program. Acer Arcade Deluxe is simple to use and makes switching between media easier for Acer users.


It is bundled and preinstalled with various Acer computers. The most used version is 4.5.7828, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is Acer Arcade Deluxe.exe. The software installer includes 29 files and is usually about 49.92 MB (52,344,755 bytes). Update.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.

This program is pre-installed on the PC

Such software is installed by the manufacture when delivering the PC to the end user. Some pre-installed programs are considered bloatware as they are simply limited function trials, while others are required for proper PC operation.
Acer Arcade Deluxe is typically pre-installed with Acer computers.
Note: This program has often been considered as bloatware by some users as it is bundled on various manufacturer's new PCs. (Because this might be considered bloatware does not mean the software is bad or harmful, if you use it regularly its worthwhile to have. However, bloatware typically means the program is optional and was simply pre-installed but is not required and can be removed.) Some quick tips to be aware of:
  • It is usually licensed for use only on the Acer PC on which it was pre-installed.
  • It is often time or functionally (lite version) limited for Acer computers.
  • If you do not use this program you might consider remvoing it as it often consumes system resources, even if not actively being run, adversely affecting system responsiveness.
