DU Meter is a software program developed by Hagel Technologies. The most common release is 4.0 build r3009, 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. The primary executable is named dumeter.exe. The setup package generally installs about 14 files and is usually about 9.55 MB (10,015,239 bytes). 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 26% of users of DU Meter come from the United States, it is also popular in BD and Germany.
