Codename Gordon


Codename Gordon is a program developed by Nuclear Vision. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. 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 main program executable is cg.exe. The software installer includes 31 files and is usually about 38.94 MB (40,832,636 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 54% of users of Codename Gordon come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
