What is Amazon?

Amazon is an app for the Pokki desktop platform. The app itself runs as an embedded HTML5 program within the Pokki software outside of the web browser.

About  (from SweetLabs)

The Amazon App for Pokki lets you browse and “Shop by Department”, quickly search, compare prices, read reviews, share products with friends, access Gold Box Deals, and make purchases. Customers can sign up to receive a daily notification for Lightning Deals and also stay up to date on status of their orders.

Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins.
