VIPAccess

Overview

VIPAccess is a software program developed by VeriSign. 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. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named VIPUIManager.exe. The setup package generally installs about 24 files and is usually about 13.98 MB (14,656,844 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 69% of users of VIPAccess come from the United States, it is also popular in Iran and Canada.
