XFINITY Connection Manager


XFINITY Connection Manager is a software program developed by Comcast. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 42 files and is usually about 36.55 MB (38,321,545 bytes). The installed file DBUpdater.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 Vista (SP2). Most users that have installed this software come from the United States.
