FBS Trader 4


FBS Trader 4 is a software program developed by MetaQuotes Software. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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 installed file liveupdate.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.

While about 35% of users of FBS Trader 4 come from Indonesia, it is also popular in MA and the United States.
