UC Browser

Overview

UC Browser is a program developed by UCWeb. The most used version is 4.0.4985.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. 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 main program executable is ucbrowser.exe. The software installer includes 17 files and is usually about 296.41 MB (310,807,014 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 8 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 12% of users of UC Browser come from BD, it is also popular in India and Russia.
