BullGuard Spamfilter is a software program developed by BullGuard. 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 bullguard.exe. The setup package generally installs about 23 files and is usually about 68.16 MB (71,475,554 bytes). The installed file BullGuardUpdate.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of those who have this installed, most are running it on Windows 7 (SP1). While about 56% of users of BullGuard Spamfilter come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Austria.
