What is ibsvc.exe and how to remove it?

ibsvc.exe - IBUpdaterService

What is ibsvc.exe?

ibsvc.exe is not essential for Windows and may cause problems. It's a part of InstallBrain Installer software (detected by antivirus companies as Adware.InstallBrain and even Trojan downloader) that is used to install third party applications, for example Yontoo, PC Performer or Babylon. Usually, it's neither essential nor dangerous but it may cause high CPU usage and Windows errors. Since ibsvc.exe is an update service, it's configured to run automatically when Windows starts. It is very often classified either as adware or potentially unwanted software. It can also download and install additional malware onto your computer. Last, but not least, if you have it on your computer then there's a good chance that it came bundled with spyware. ibsvc.exe is not a Windows file and it may slow down your computer, that's why I recommend removing it.
