Overview

Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. 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 installer includes 117 files and is usually about 50.05 MB (52,477,337 bytes). updater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
