Microsoft Small Basic v0.9


Microsoft Small Basic v0.9 is a software program developed by Microsoft. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The setup package generally installs about 37 files and is usually about 1.78 MB (1,865,728 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2).
