Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel


Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a software program developed by 2K Games.

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 primary executable is named Contig.exe. The setup package generally installs about 78 files and is usually about 334.47 MB (350,712,386 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 8 and Windows 7 (SP1).
