  1. Scannan, Still hanging tough after all these years. Hard to believe I joined this forum in 2007. Just want to extend respect to you for all your efforts over the years. There was a time when you weren't a lone voice crying in the wilderness, but those days are long gone. Thumbs upThumbs up
  2. Scannan, this is definitely a Bitdefender problem, At this point you can't navigate anywhere connected with IObit without a warning popping up, including the forum. Bitdefender must be juicing (taking steroids) over the past couple of days. IObit needs to contact BD to get this resolved. I'm sure other sites are having the same problem, current AV's are all intent with saving us from ourselves, even when we don't ask to be saved. Here is an example of what BD is protecting us from, when attempting to read forum content. We blocked this dangerous page for your protection: https://identifyluckyexactly.com/50/a3/51/50a351a59c68401244bd1da2f8e9b6e5.js Threat name: JS:Adware.Popunder.B
  3. Scannan, this is a junk post, posted previously under another username. Word for word, with no response from the OP.
  4. https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/iobit_software_updater.html Your Softonic download may have been a false positive. Did you try VirusTotal?
  5. IObit be aware. https://www.zdnet.com/article/anonymous-researcher-drops-vbulletin-zero-day-impacting-tens-of-thousands-of-sites/
  6. Best to go with those who know:-), in this case Avast. Hope you found your answer and all is good.
  7. Would think you would be asking this question on the Avast forums rather than Iobit, but here's some info that should answer and help to rectify your situation. .https://www.vpnteacher.com/how https://help.avast.com/en/ws_android/1/alert_dns_hijack.html
  8. How about giving a little more information. Examples of what you refer to as browser startups (hundreds of them) would help. Lack of understanding may be due to terminology you are using. A Search for your subject line "Startup Manager-Browser Startups" returns no results.
  9. Here's a link to the decrypters that Emsisoft offers. https://decrypter.emsisoft.com/
  10. Take the time to read thoroughly the article Cicely posted previouly. You will have to whitelist those programs within your A/V if you wish to install them. As stated in the article a large number of A/V and malware programs have started this practice. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/malwar...wanted-program
  11. Though this article refers to malwarebytes, other cybersecurity firms are taking the same action. https://securityintelligence.com/news/malwarebytes-thinks-potentially-unwanted-programs-malware/
  12. Not a virus, ESET is probably recognizing DB as a PUP. A number of antimalware and antivirus programs have started doing this to some programs (Malwarebytes for example). https://www.howtogeek.com/232791/pups-explained-what-is-a-potentially-unwanted-program/ If you want to install DB, add it to ESET's exclusions.
  13. I don't think the folks at Tweaking.com would appreciate your referring to "their" software as abandoned. It is however, freeware, available to users at no cost. Tweaking.com-Windows Repair being their premium application, which offers both a free and pay version.
  14. Security type software has become much more aggressive in what they identify as PUP's (potentially unwanted programs). This is the reason for the problems you found in your scan report. Security programs are not taking into considerations that not all PUP's are bad and people may want these programs on their machines.
  15. With only a month to become compliant, this is going to be a major FUBAR for a lot of companies. I will say as someone who has downloaded and tested a lot these types of programs over the years this is a long time coming. I've had to clean a lot of friend and family computers as result fear mongering and a lack of knowledge.
  16. Just got this email this afternoon. I never used the product mentioned, but have been an IObit customer and member of this forum for many years. It appears that another company, has gotten hold of not only the email addresses of IObit customers, but the actual user names connected to those email accounts. Be wary people. IObit comment would be appreciated [TABLE=class: yiv6691166188mob_full_width, align: center, border: 0, cellpadding: 0, cellspacing: 0] [TR] [TD=align: left]Dear (my name redacted) We've noticed that you are, or previously were, using an older version of Advanced Computer System Repair for Windows. This is a reminder to please update Advanced Computer System Repair as your version will be permanently retired. After November 24 2017 you will be unable to sign-in. Recently updated? Great, you can ignore this email.[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=align: left]Thank you, Advanced Computer System Repair[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=align: left]Are you not interested in this product any more? Please, unsubscribe.[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE]
  17. Preach On!!! https://www.howtogeek.com/233115/the-only-way-to-safely-update-your-hardware-drivers-on-windows/ The old adage of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies. The only exceptions would be graphics drivers if your are a gamer and there is reported fix or upgrade for specific games. These you can and should get directly from Nvidia, AMD or Intel and even they have been known to break something every now and then. I realize IObit is trying to provide a service, but also trying to make a buck (i.e. pro version) but warning disclaimer of STOP DO NOT PROCEED is in order for those who have no idea of what they are about to get into.
  18. Here is a great article from gizmo's freeware (techsupportalert.com) that should be of assistance in determining what is best you and your location. https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-find-best-dns-server.htm
  19. If I understand the information provided on Majorgeeks correctly, it is that that this is a standalone driver for people who want PhysX. The current version of PhysX is always downloaded with the current Nvidia video card driver with the option to uninstall. I believe the current version is 9.17.0329 as I just updated my Geforce driver yesterday.
  20. The folks at Emsisoft have come up with a number of decrypters. This one may be of some help. https://decrypter.emsisoft.com/ A.T.
  21. Just for grins, go to Majorgeeks and download Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder. Should find your windows key and keys from other software installs. Worth a shot. A.T.
  22. This should help you to remove your browser hi jacker. https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/kb20100811171926EN_EndUserProfile_en_us A.T.
  23. Willing to bet the number you called was a third part support number and not Avangate. These so called support numbers, as you indicated in your title are a scam. Why companies like Iobit and Avast Antivirus continue to have established relationships with these companies is hard to understand. You can search the Avast forums and find multiple complaints similar to your own. If you still need to contact Avangate, here is their contact page http://www.avangate.com/contact-us/ Make sure you have any order numbers available to assist with your problems. Good Luck
  24. You say you've tried all the microsoft fixes, but have you tried the simple right click on desktop and make sure that under view that the box next to show desktop icons is ticked. Don't know if that's your problem. but sometimes the simple stuff is the answer.
  25. Paranoia is just the bastard child of fear and good sense.
