Update Manager B08.1027.1

What is Update Manager?

Gigabyte Update Manager is a program designed to manage all installed Gigabyte programs on the user's PC and check for and update any new versions of the software if available. This service will run in the background when Windows starts and periodically check for updates.


During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 UnInstGBTUpd.exe. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 1.66 MB (1,743,484 bytes).
