Subway Scramble

What is Subway Scramble?

This is a casual computer video game published and distributed by PlayFirst. The game offers in-game virtual curency and virtual item purchases. The game is capable of sending you notifications, known as pop-ups and push notifications and will send you such notifications to alert a user to in-Application activity .


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 setup package generally installs about 4 files and is usually about 11.62 MB (12,181,355 bytes).
