USB Disk Security is a software program developed by Zbshareware Lab. 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 USBGuard.exe. The setup package generally installs about 11 files and is usually about 2.52 MB (2,647,428 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 7. While about 16% of users of USB Disk Security come from India, it is also popular in the United States and IQ.
