BattCursor is a software program developed by Thomas Baumann. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 primary executable is named battcursor.exe. The setup package generally installs about 14 files and is usually about 2.14 MB (2,247,520 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 39% of users of BattCursor come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Czech Republic.
