DigitalPersona WBF Fingerprint Support

What is DigitalPersona WBF Fingerprint Support?

This is the software driver and additional utilities required for managing and connecting the DigitalPersona WBF Fingerprint device to the PC. Uninstalling this driver may cause the hardware to stop functioning properly (only remove this package if you no longer have the device connected to your PC).


Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. 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 software installer includes 96 files and is usually about 5.27 MB (5,523,852 bytes). DPAutoUpdates.dll is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
