Avira In Product Messaging (IPM) is a "slide-up" message window, which is designed to inform customers about various current Avira offers and products.
Why does IPMgui.exe establish an internet connection?
After each start of the computer, the IPMgui.exe connects itself to the Internet to perform an information update of the current Avira database. The updates will be executed regularly during the day, but not on a fixed schedule.
IPM slide-up messages are triggered only with the Free Antivirus version and cannot be disabled. The IPM slide-up message disappears only after an upgrade to the Pro version.
