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. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to 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. Once installed, it will add an extension to both the Firefox and Chrome web browsers. The main program executable is messagecenterplus.exe. The software installer includes 618 files and is usually about 4.48 MB (4,698,112 bytes). softwareupdate.dll is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
