It is bundled and preinstalled with various Samsung computers. The most used version is 1.2.00, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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 main program executable is runmanual.exe. The software installer includes 11 files and is usually about 833.57 KB (853,572 bytes).

User Guide is pre-installed on the PC

Such software is installed by the manufacture when delivering the PC to the end user. Some pre-installed programs are considered bloatware as they are simply limited function trials, while others are required for proper PC operation.
