The main program executable is sysTPLUtil.dll. The software installer includes 13 files and is usually about 1.23 MB (1,285,909 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 35% of users of sysTPL come from Germany, it is also popular in France and Italy.

Here's why: 1.) only on my win7 computer, but not on our vista ultimate, and win8.1 computers. 2.) only on the user side, not the admin side of the win 7.0 computer. adnin is supposed to be the safer side(executables theoretically cannot be deployed without the knowledge of the operator). 3.) why the concentration of this program in one country (approx. 41 germany)? 4.) malwarebytes tries, but cannot delete it. identifies all files and registry items in the first column (in red) as pup.optional.tlapiaproxy (exact spelling!) the word proxy got my attention: i have had nothing but trouble for several months because all 6 of my browsers on my user side say ‘cannot connect to proxy server’. entering lan settings, i have to unclick connect to proxy server everytime i start a new search or url. 5.) removing the program was as simple as forums said: control panel, then uninstall programs, and finally... uninstall systpl. now all my browsers connect properly. 6.) i have both american and british passports, but live in germany. american ex-pats are said to be fair game. germany, more than china, is being spied upon. 8.) conspiracy theories aside, the fact that my browsers now function properly on my win7 laptop, (the most used and likely to be infected computer) makes the presence of systpl (aka pup.optional.tlapiaproxy) unwanted; therefore: dangerous’ to those who value their time and smooth workflow on a computer.
