Secure Chromium


Secure Chromium is a software program developed by Chromium. 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 chrome.exe. The setup package is about 288.83 MB (302,859,077 bytes) when donwloaded. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 8 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 65% of users of Secure Chromium come from the United States, it is also popular in Mexico and France.
