Diskeeper Home is a software program developed by Diskeeper. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. 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 primary executable is named DkService.exe. The setup package generally installs about 20 files and is usually about 8.66 MB (9,078,396 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows Vista (SP2) and Windows Vista (SP1). While about 57% of users of Diskeeper Home come from the United States, it is also popular in France and United Kingdom.
