The Acer EPM Device Manager is found on Acer laptops. epm-dm.exe is a non-essential process which means you don't need it to run on startup.

Download a startup manager like Startup Control Panel, Autoruns or Starter by CodeStuff.
If you untick an entry it will no longer run at startup. This will allow you to experiment and see how your system performs with epm-dm.exe's startup entry disabled.
