Connect it

Remove Connect it
Powered by Reason Antivirus


Connect it is a software program developed by Birdstep. The most common release is 2.0.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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. 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 primary executable is named wilog.exe. The setup package generally installs about 31 files and is usually about 28.39 MB (29,766,270 bytes). The installed file WlanProfilesUpdater.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 users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 80% of users of Connect it come from DK, it is also popular in the United States and Germany.
