It's for backups and changing settings etc. Irritating innit :lol:

Acer Empowering Technology is an interface to provide a common look and feel for task and applications that can be launched quickly via specially assigned keys on the keyboard.

It can be switched off by removing it in MSConfig or uninstalled altogether.

Or just delete the autorun link from Start Menu>All Programs>Startup.

Will it affect my computer in any way if its switched off? The less running processes the better!

Doubt it. I just got my Acer today and i'm systematically deleting all the bloatware from it. You can always restart it if you ever need it.

On some Acer models, disabling Empowering technology prevents the screen to be using maximum brightness. One of the tools that can be installed with the Empowering toolbar actually allows the screen to be displayed at its maximum brightness.
