RSS Checker

Overview

RSS Checker is a software program developed by Ran Hosoya. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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 RSS Checker.exe. The setup package generally installs about 2 files and is usually about 974.55 KB (997,940 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 42% of users of RSS Checker come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Austria.
