HyperQuest Link


HyperQuest Link is a software program developed by HyperQuest. 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. The setup package generally installs about 26 files. The installed file HQLinkUpdaterDLL.dll 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 Vista (SP2) and Windows 7. Most users that have installed this software come from the United States.
