Part of Object Desktop suite from stardock.
If it is under "C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\IconPackager\iprepair.dll" it should be harmless and you probably installed Stardocks IP and dont remember it, I think that this DLL is manly responsible for skinning the shell icons...

changes your icons, no known issues
It is or was part of IconPackager but it caused problems with other apps (Corel word perfect wouldn't run until i removed it)
Verändert auf Wunsch die Windows Icons; Programm an sich ist clean
Part of Object Desktop
See John's quote above. If using Stardock's Object Desktop WindowBlinds this icon is partly responsible for icon changes.

Best practices for resolving iprepair issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with iprepair. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the iprepair.dll process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
