Overview

ACDSee Pro 7 is a program developed by ACD Systems Ltd. The most used version is 7.1.163, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The main program executable is ACDSeeDesktopShortcu_F99F74B4972B4B06B8936B3B0DB0128B.exe. The software installer includes 221 files and is usually about 135.21 MB (141,780,137 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 13% of users of ACDSee Pro 7 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Thailand.
