CyberLink PowerDirector Ultimate Suite 2

Overview

CyberLink PowerDirector Ultimate Suite 2 is a program developed by CyberLink. 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 software installer includes 242 files and is usually about 11.05 MB (11,589,632 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 42% of users of CyberLink PowerDirector Ultimate Suite 2 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Italy.
