ClearContext Information Management System


ClearContext Information Management System is a program developed by ClearContext. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 15 files and is usually about 1.05 MB (1,104,384 bytes). A majority of the PCs this is running on, most OS versions are Windows XP. While about 83% of users of ClearContext Information Management System come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom.
