Fraud Protect Online Protection Software

Overview

Fraud Protect Online Protection Software is a software program developed by SentryBay. 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. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. In the Google Chrome browser, it will add an extension. The primary executable is named pl.exe. The setup package generally installs about 28 files and is usually about 14.84 MB (15,556,909 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of those who have this installed, most are running it on Windows 7 (SP1). While about 83% of users of Fraud Protect Online Protection Software come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom.
