Outpost Security Suite 7.1.1 is a software program developed by Agnitum. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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. 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 op_mon.exe. The setup package generally installs about 32 files and is usually about 47.98 MB (50,308,005 bytes). The installed file update.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 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 65% of users of Outpost Security Suite come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Canada.
