Doctor PC


Doctor PC is a software program developed by Dragon Big Lab. The most common release is 2.6.7, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). 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 primary executable is named DoctorPC.exe. The setup package generally installs about 17 files and is usually about 12.03 MB (12,613,221 bytes). The installed file updater.exe 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 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 12% of users of Doctor PC come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Brazil.
