Overview

AVG PC TuneUp 2015 is a program developed by AVG Technologies. The most used version is 15.0.1001.403, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. 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. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The main program executable is integrator.exe. The software installer includes 122 files and is usually about 27.25 MB (28,576,296 bytes). SilentUpdater.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 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 27% of users of AVG PC TuneUp 2015 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
