Overview

Baidu PC Faster is a software program developed by Baidu. The most common release is 5.0.7.99579, with over 39% of all installations currently using this version. 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. 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 primary executable is named pcfaster.exe. The setup package generally installs about 71 files and is usually about 10.98 MB (11,508,837 bytes). The installed file liveupdate.exe 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. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 18% of users of Baidu PC Faster come from Brazil, it is also popular in Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
