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 primary executable is named vfprotray.exe. The setup package generally installs about 8 files and is usually about 13.65 MB (14,307,849 bytes).
