Overview

SPAMfighter is a software program developed by SPAMfighter ApS. The most common release is 7.6.14, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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. The primary executable is named spamfighter_client.exe. The setup package generally installs about 65 files and is usually about 28.15 MB (29,514,333 bytes). The installed file sfse_update.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. 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 40% of users of SPAMfighter come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Netherlands.
