every time I start up, I get a message that this file is missing. But I don't know what app it's for or what it is!
Its the acer light sensor - changes screen brightness to conserve battery. not essential
its a utility for Acer Table PC`s that allows you to adjust the backlight level. IF you are getting a message that is missing on startup, its most likely you have an entry in WIN.INI file that is no longer needed.
