    What is this Service IDriverT.exe?


    I've been reviewing the startup programs using Autoruns. I have this service IDriverT.exe enabled and set to manual. Autoruns reports the service as shown below. What does this service do and can I safely disable it?

    Steve this is a part of the Installsheild installer software and as it is set to manual start, should only start when required, (and be stopped ant the end of the install, though sometimes this is not done so will run until next reboot).

    Unless you are having issues I would recommend you leave as is, as you could find the install routine may not work when next needed if this is removed or set to disabled . If you reboot and this starts automatically when an installation is not in progress then I would consider running an AV check to be sure (this is extremely unlikely)

    Thanks. I'll leave it alone.
