LIMBO

Overview

LIMBO is a program developed by Playdead. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. 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. The main program executable is limbo.exe. The software installer includes 42 files and is usually about 98.88 MB (103,683,209 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 55% of users of LIMBO come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and France.
