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 PPTVIEW.EXE. The software installer includes 52 files and is usually about 591.62 KB (605,816 bytes).
