  1. It would be handy if the option to delete unused installers to be not selected by default, to prevent users accidentally melting installers they want to keep. Some users like to keep installers for software they use in their Downloads folder. It's certainly a useful function, but I think it might be better if it was optional to enable it.
  2. I had never run a Full Scan. This is something I usually avoid with all antiviruses. However, I just did a custom scan of C and let it complete. I didn't run a Full Scan, as there a 25 partitions on this system, so t would take a very long time. Running the scan of C did not reduce CPU use on subsequent scans. Also, it's important to note that with ASC Ultimate there was no excessive CPU use, even on the very first scan.
  3. IMF is the sole cause of the CPU use. I was not looking at total CPU usage, only CPU use from the IMF processes.
  4. Reduce resource usage. CPU use is over 90% when running a scan, which is way too high.
  5. I have used previous versions of IMF, on different computers and didn't have this issue. However, I'm not sure the last version I used, other than this one, where I took note of CPU usage, as it's been quite some time, since I used IMF as my antivirus on the main computer I use.
  6. Right from when I first used it, and this is on a clean install of Windows 10.
  7. I just found out that I didn't have Full Detection enabled. But when I enabled it, CPU use was only very slightly higher.
  8. I uninstalled, rebooted and then reinstalled it. The result was the same, as I had expected. I then uninstalled it again and installed a trial of ASC Ultimate. With the default settings, CPU usage is between 24% and 34% when scanning. Which is perfectly acceptable. This is from a user at MalwareTips who experienced the same problem. As well as that, a while back there were some posts at Wilders with someone also experiencing very CPU (and RAM) USE with IMF 8, but I was not able to find the psots again.
  9. No I haven't. I don't believe there is corruption, as I know others who have the same issue. Apparently ASC Ultimate is lighter. i5 2400 CPU with 6GB of RAM. While not particularly powerful, it is more than fast enough for an antivirus to be able to run scans without excessive CPU use.
  10. I just did that and CPU is still way too high, over 60% to over 70%. It should be less than that on medium priority.
  11. Reduce resource usage. CPU use is over 90% when running a scan, which is way too high.
  12. The RAM and CPU is very high when running scans, which is something that should be fixed. It is not an issue with my computer, it happens on multiple computers.
  13. A suggestion is when after rebooting, there are more programs to uninstall or scan for leftovers, for IObit Uninstaller to automatically launch again. There could be the option to switch been showing the popup, which asks if you want to launch it again - as it done now, or automatically running IObit Uninstaller again. There are still some occasional issues with the software health function, where it want to delete leftovers from programs that are actually still installed.
  14. You didn't understand me. After optimizing the startup items, only the Startup Optimization is selected. Rather than whatever was selected previously. Just the startup optimizer should run, but items selected, should remain checked,
