Battle Islands


Battle Islands is a software program developed by DR Studios. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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. The setup package generally installs about 47 files and is usually about 146.9 MB (154,034,739 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 52% of users of Battle Islands come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Brazil.
