Python 3.2.2 is a program developed by Python Software Foundation. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is python.exe. The software installer includes 11 files and is usually about 17.2 MB (18,034,688 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 54% of users of Python come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
