MetaTrader 4.00

Overview

MetaTrader 4.00 is a program developed by MetaQuotes Software. 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 9 files and is usually about 33.79 MB (35,435,158 bytes). LiveUpdate.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.

While about 31% of users of MetaTrader come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and India.
