Other programs by Hewlett-Packard



Facebook is a program developed by Hewlett-Packard. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. 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 hptouchsmartfacebookchild.exe. The software installer includes 155 files and is usually about 228.16 MB (239,243,204 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 83% of users of Facebook come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and France.
