PC Security Tweaker


PC Security Tweaker is a software program developed by Ixis Research. 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. The setup package generally installs about 3 files and is usually about 4.8 MB (5,029,541 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 27% of users of PC Security Tweaker come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Spain.
