IBM Standard Asset Manager is a software program developed by IBM. 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 primary executable is named c4ebreg.exe. The setup package generally installs about 17 files. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 71% of users of IBM Standard Asset Manager come from the United States, it is also popular in Japan and Germany.
