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. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The main program executable is screenhunter.exe. The software installer includes 118 files and is usually about 2.35 MB (2,465,957 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows XP.
