AVS Firewall version 2.1 is a software program developed by Online Media Technologies. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 9 files and is usually about 7.02 MB (7,363,428 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 31% of users of AVS Firewall come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
