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 Icon.504A8512.30ED.486F.8949.D2349FD75137.exe. The software installer includes 40 files and is usually about 45.42 MB (47,629,837 bytes).
