PaperPort Anywhere 1.1.4310.24706 powered by OfficeDrop is a software program developed by OfficeDrop. 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. 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 primary executable is named PaperPortAnywhere.exe. The setup package generally installs about 218 files and is usually about 3.18 MB (3,332,990 bytes). The installed file AutoUpdate.exe 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 8. While about 65% of users of PaperPort Anywhere powered by OfficeDrop come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Italy.
