VirtualBoss Update

Overview

VirtualBoss Update is a program developed by VirtualBoss Software. 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 update.exe. The software installer includes 11 files. update.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released. In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows Vista (SP2) as well as Windows XP. The distribution of this has mostly been seen in the United States.
