VTech Download Manager

What is VTech Download Manager?  (from VTech)

The Learning Lodge™ is VTech's easy-to-use download manager.


VTech Download Manager is a software program developed by VTech. 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 DownloadManager.exe. The setup package generally installs about 27 files and is usually about 72.09 MB (75,594,401 bytes). The program is built using the Nokia Qt cross-platforms native C++ framework. 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 73% of users of VTech Download Manager come from Germany, it is also popular in Austria and the United States.

On my MacBook Pro I also installed the VTech Software for my Kids VTech Books. Yet the Process is permanently (!) using 2-3% CPU Time and is responsible for 15-17% of energy consumption. This is kind of strange, for we only use it lets say three times a year to update content after buying a new book or toy. So what is thing doing all the time in the background? What I do now is remove it completely and reinstall it when needed (and then removing afterwards). Sorry, but this is a great loss of confidence for me in a company producing "intelligent toys" for children.
