PerfectDisk 12 Help


PerfectDisk 12 Help is a software program developed by Raxco Software. 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 17 files and is usually about 49.98 MB (52,411,229 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 57% of users of PerfectDisk 12 Help come from the United States, it is also popular in ZM and United Kingdom.
