Powered by Reason Antivirus


Network Update Agent is a software program developed by Volvo Information Technology AB. The most common release is 2.06.000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. 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 21 files and is usually about 4.51 MB (4,731,557 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 47% of users of Network Update Agent come from the United States, it is also popular in Spain and Colombia.
