theSkyNet is a software program developed by Oxford University Press. 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. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 227.51 MB (238,562,713 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 47% of users of theSkyNet come from the United States, it is also popular in Australia and Germany.
