Anfibia Switch 2.1


Anfibia Switch 2.1 is a software program developed by Anfibia Software. 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 primary executable is named switch.exe. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 12.45 MB (13,055,458 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of those who have this installed, most are running it on Windows 10. While about 80% of users of Anfibia Switch come from the United States, it is also popular in Australia.
