Chrome Remote Desktop Host is a software program developed by Google Inc. The most common release is 47.0.2526.18, with over 98% 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. 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 remoting_host.exe. The setup package generally installs about 13 files and is usually about 3.66 MB (3,836,928 bytes). 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 54% of users of Chrome Remote Desktop Host come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
