Overview

ObjectDock Plus 2 is a software program developed by Stardock. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC.

The setup package generally installs about 49 files and is usually about 499.36 KB (511,344 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8.
