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 programs's main executable is CGVPNCliService.exe and has been seen to consume an average CPU of less than one percent, and utilizes about 7.87 MB of memory.
