Nullsoft Tray Control Icon Pack


Nullsoft Tray Control Icon Pack is a software program developed by Christoph Grether. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 programs's main executable is winamp.exe and has been seen to consume an average CPU of less than one percent, and utilizes about 48.1 MB of memory. The setup package generally installs about 35 files. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 81% of users of Nullsoft Tray Control Icon Pack come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Israel.
