FRITZ!DSL64

What is FRITZ!DSL64?  (from AVM Berlin)

FRITZ!Box is AVM's versatile solution for secure Broadband-Access from multiple PCs. A router with an integrated modem, FRITZ!Box offers many options, including USB and LAN ports, WLAN with wireless encryption activated out of the box, and extensions to connect your accustomed phones.

Overview

FRITZ!DSL64 is a software program developed by AVM Berlin. 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. 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 primary executable is named FritzDsl.exe. The setup package generally installs about 32 files and is usually about 7.38 MB (7,735,933 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 97% of users of FRITZ!DSL64 come from Germany, it is also popular in Austria and the United States.
