Format Package 3

Overview

Format Package 3 is a software program developed by iFunSoft. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. 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). When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named formatpackage.exe. The setup package generally installs about 20 files and is usually about 55.7 MB (58,404,828 bytes). The installed file iFunSoftUpdater.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. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 44% of users of Format Package 3 come from the United States, it is also popular in Italy and Germany.
