Re-Enable V2


Re-Enable V2 is a software program developed by Tangosoft. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. 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 Re-Enable v2.exe. The setup package generally installs about 27 files and is usually about 773 KB (791,552 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 22% of users of Re-Enable come from MA, it is also popular in the United States and DZ.
