The most common release is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. 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 Connectivity.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 18 files and is usually about 14.46 MB (15,159,597 bytes). The installed file VuuPCUpdater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
