Samsung Update Plus

What is Samsung Update Plus?

Samsung Update Plus is the updater program which runs with Windows (in the background as a service) and automatically starts up when your computer boots. It checks for updates and automatically downloads and installs them if found based on the user's settings.

About  (from Samsung Electronics)

Samsung Update Plus searches for and checks the drivers and software provided by your Samsung computer and allows you to update them if there are updates available.


It is typically pre-installed with most new Samsung computers. The most common release is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 primary executable is named supclientapp.exe. The setup package generally installs about 25 files and is usually about 7.7 MB (8,076,631 bytes).

This program is pre-installed on the PC

Pre-installed software such as this is usually included by default on the manufacturer's PC. Many OEM (original equipment manufacture) software that is included with a new PC is useful and in many cases required for the PC to function properly as in the case of various software drivers. However, some pre-installed software is optional and can be safely removed.
