The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is expressaccounts.exe. The software installer includes 66 files and is usually about 4.66 MB (4,883,697 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10.
