Overview

Codename CURE is a software program developed by Hoobalugalar_X. 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. The primary executable is named cure.exe. The setup package generally installs about 53 files and is usually about 3.14 MB (3,295,913 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 64% of users of Codename CURE come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and France.
