Tomb Raider: Anniversary


Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a program developed by Crystal Dynamics.

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.
