Overview

During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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. The primary executable is named LogTransport2.exe. The setup package generally installs about 42 files. The installed file AdobeUpdater.dll is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
