Intel Active-Management-Technologie


Intel Active-Management-Technologie is a software program developed by Intel. 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 mesoludlg.exe. The setup package generally installs about 33 files and is usually about 13.49 MB (14,149,733 bytes). 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 74% of users of Intel Active-Management-Technologie come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and Austria.
