Yahoo! Friend is a software program developed by Truong, Duc Do. 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 setup package generally installs about 3 files. 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 37% of users of Yahoo! Friend come from Iran, it is also popular in the United States and Romania.
