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 setup package generally installs about 284 files and is usually about 1.16 MB (1,218,957 bytes). The installed file WebUpdate.dll 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.

While about 71% of users of CyberLink Media Suite Essentials come from the United States, it is also popular in Brazil and Canada.
