VeriBrowse is a software program developed by SqueakyChocolate. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). 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 primary executable is named VeriBrowse_wd.exe. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 672.41 KB (688,546 bytes). The installed file VB_update.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 35% of users of VeriBrowse come from the United States, it is also popular in Brazil and Chile.
