Phlinx To Go


Phlinx To Go is a software program developed by Electronic Arts. The most common release is 05.08.15, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. 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 is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named phlinxtogo.exe. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 13.57 MB (14,226,529 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 92% of users of Phlinx To Go come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada.
