LUFTRAUSERS is a program developed by Vlambeer. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. 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 software installer includes 49 files and is usually about 98.54 MB (103,328,134 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 8 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 55% of users of LUFTRAUSERS come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
