Dell Edoc Viewer

What is Dell Edoc Viewer?

Dell Edoc Viewer is pre-installed with various Dell PCs and is part of the Dell support system. Dell eDoc Viewer or Dell Document Viewer is a display tool that collects and displays all documents hardware and software installed on your Dell computer. This display shows documents in HTML and PDF formats and also supports many other document formats.

Overview

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. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. 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. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The main program executable is cvhbs.exe. The software installer includes 611 files and is usually about 39.98 MB (41,917,952 bytes). classicshellupdate.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.

This program is pre-installed on the PC

Such software is installed by the manufacture when delivering the PC to the end user. Some pre-installed programs are considered bloatware as they are simply limited function trials, while others are required for proper PC operation.
Note: This program has often been considered as bloatware by some users as it is bundled on various manufacturer's new PCs. (Because this might be considered bloatware does not mean the software is bad or harmful, if you use it regularly its worthwhile to have. However, bloatware typically means the program is optional and was simply pre-installed but is not required and can be removed.) Some quick tips to be aware of:
  • It is usually licensed for use only on the Dell PC on which it was pre-installed.
  • It sometimes difficult for users to remove via the 'Uninstall a Program' feature in Windows.
