DataSynapse Desktop Scavenging Engine 4


DataSynapse Desktop Scavenging Engine 4 is a program developed by DataSynapse. 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 64 files and is usually about 775 KB (793,600 bytes). A majority of the PCs this is running on, most OS versions are Windows XP. While about 83% of users of DataSynapse Desktop Scavenging Engine 4 come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom.
