Five Nights at Freddy's


Five Nights at Freddy's is a software program developed by Scott Cawthon. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named FiveNightsatFreddys.exe. The setup package generally installs about 49 files and is usually about 220.43 MB (231,138,132 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 8 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 75% of users of Five Nights at Freddy's come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
