Tomb Raider


Tomb Raider is a program developed by Crystal Dynamics. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. 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 TombRaider.exe. The software installer includes 67 files and is usually about 10.24 MB (10,736,395 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 50% of users of Tomb Raider come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
