IR App

Remove IR App
Powered by Reason Antivirus


IR App is a software program developed by Acer. 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 setup package generally installs about 4 files and is usually about 544.43 KB (557,497 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 66% of users of IR App come from the United States, it is also popular in Australia and France.
