Overview

G DATA TOTAL PROTECTION is a software program developed by G DATA Software AG. The most common release is 25.1.0.4, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. 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). 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 gdsc.exe. The setup package generally installs about 99 files and is usually about 596.58 KB (610,903 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 86% of users of G DATA TOTAL PROTECTION come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and Austria.
