Tele2 Connect Monitor


Tele2 Connect Monitor is a software program developed by Columbitech. The most common release is 4.1.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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 setup package generally installs about 16 files and is usually about 21.99 MB (23,059,444 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 50% of users of Tele2 Connect Monitor come from Sweden, it is also popular in Croatia and the United States.
