DriverAccess

Overview

DriverAccess is a software program developed by Driver Assure Corp. 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 setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 4.92 MB (5,161,655 bytes). The installed file DriverAccess.Updater.exe 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. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 31% of users of DriverAccess come from the United States, it is also popular in BS and Germany.
