DriverAssist is a program developed by SafeBytes Software. 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 main program executable is DriverAssist.exe. The software installer includes 8 files and is usually about 13.13 MB (13,763,748 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 10 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 71% of users of DriverAssist come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Australia.
