Blade Symphony


Blade Symphony is a program developed by Puny Human Games. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. 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 main program executable is berimbau.exe. The software installer includes 39 files and is usually about 14.86 MB (15,582,083 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 63% of users of Blade Symphony come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
