WinLess

Overview

WinLess is a software program developed by Mark Lagendijk. The most common release is 1.8.3, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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 setup package generally installs about 134 files and is usually about 3.09 MB (3,242,347 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 20% of users of WinLess come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Germany.
