Kingsoft Basic Service


Kingsoft Basic Service is a software program developed by Kingsoft. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 1.11 MB (1,166,543 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 48% of users of Kingsoft Basic Service come from Japan, it is also popular in the United States and Hong Kong.
