DigitalPersona Personal 4.11

What is DigitalPersona Personal?

DigitalPersona offers centrally-managed solutions that help Small Businesses and Enterprises achieve security and compliance with endpoint protection for access, data and communication. DigitalPersona offers fingerprint-based Windows log-in and an extra-cost file encryption module.


The most common release is 4.11.3826, 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. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. 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). When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named DpRegApp.exe. The setup package generally installs about 83 files and is usually about 16.54 MB (17,339,456 bytes).
