Online Data Protection Suite

Overview

Online Data Protection Suite is a software program developed by Europ Assistance USA. The most common release is 5.5.0.6885, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer.
