ASUS Bluetooth Suite is a software program developed by ASUS. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The programs's main executable is BtvStack.exe and has been seen to consume an average CPU of less than one percent, and utilizes about 15.67 MB of memory. The setup package generally installs about 62 files and is usually about 47.05 MB (49,336,237 bytes).
