Disk SpeedUp


Disk SpeedUp is a software program developed by Glarysoft Ltd. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. 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 diskdefrag.exe. The setup package generally installs about 49 files and is usually about 15.7 MB (16,465,636 bytes). The installed file CheckUpdate.dll 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 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 58% of users of Disk SpeedUp come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Germany.
