  1. I am very sorry to have to say this, but this is totally unacceptable. If Iobit wish to consider the present Beta stage of ASCU 8 to be an advanced version of ASCU7, then it must be released as an upgrade to ASCU7 period. It cannot be released to the user as an upgrade to ASCU7 and then the user discovers that it is in fact ASCU 8 Beta which has been loaded on to their machine. Users have to be made aware of Beta products and have the choice of whether they wish to partake in the risk of having a Beta product on their machine. Iobit is a large company, and as such I am sure they must be aware of the commercial and legal risks involved in ignoring the standards and or obligations which apply to Beta products, and loading them onto users machines without the users full knowledge and prior permission. I completely fail to see what advantage there is for Iobit to continue to follow this strategy, but I can certainly see the many dis-advantages in doing so. Once again, I hope that this practice will be curtailed and or revised, and Iobit will implement the established practices and methodologies relating to Beta products.

  6. I think that SD is being unfairly criticised in that while the amount of fragments may sound large they are in fact tiny when viewed as a percentage of the total file size, SD, I believe, calculates the fragmentation as a percentage of the total file size and if this percentage is below a certain value, it will consider that the file does not need defragmenting.
  7. You are comparing two completely different programs which could lead to confusion for other users. In order to give a true reflection you must compare like for like. Again I stress...IMF is an Anti-Malware program and ASCU is a Utility Program with a complete Anti-Virus program incorporated. They should not be compared to each other,
  8. If you read the previous post by Cicely and if you read the product information for IMF...you will clearly see that IMF is not an anti-virus program...it is an Anti-malware program (IMF= Iobit Malware Fighter). ASCU8 has a full Anti-virus package but a limited malware capability. IMF could therefore not replace ASCU. IMF should be used together with ASCU, in order to fully protect your machine.
  9. Hi ianmoses Welcome to the forum. First step, is to identify the problem driver. It is probably a display driver. So roll back your updated drivers to the old drivers. Then update the drivers one at a time. This will allow you to identify the problem driver. Then roll back that problem driver and download the other drivers. Pass the information relating to the problem driver to Iobit and they can investigate.
  10. Thank you for the information. Is there an issue we can help you with. If so, please ask the relevant question.
  11. Thank you for the feedback. Iobit can use this information to improve the database.
  12. Just because a driver update program finds more drivers to update,does not make it better. Iobit put as much effort into removing unsuitable drivers from the database as they do adding suitable drivers. If every driver program did this, there would be a lot less problems with driver updates. My recommendation has always been.....do not update your driver unless it is causing issues......if it is not broken do not fix it!!!!!.
  13. Hi Cyprea Welcome to the forum. Did you click on ignore for that driver. This will send it to the ignore list and it will not be scanned again until itis removed from the ignore list. Also, check your Driver Booster settings. You may decide not to check drivers every day. Here is the link to the Driver Booster User Manual, which will show you how to ignore a particular driver, and how to use the settings. Also, while your frustration is understandable, please do not use aggressive and or bad language in your post's. It will not be accepted in this forum.
  14. CKCustom In your SD General Settings, you can set at what % you wish your disc to defrag, including an option to always defrag. I would however recommend that you look at the many discussions here in the forum and in other discussions on the net regarding defragmenting. You will find the vast majority of experienced people strongly advise against too much & too often defragging your drive. It can lead to wear/damage and a reduction of drive lifespan. I have my drives set to never defrag until fragmentation exceeds 5%, and I have never experienced a loss of performance as a result.
  15. This is already a feature of SD. If you have an external hd connected to your pc, when you start SD it will show this disc in the choices of which disc you wish to defrag.
  16. Cicely Thank you for clarification. I am delighted to see that Iobit care so much for their users and show their appreciation in such a generous manner.
  17. Cicely Surely only the reviews you use will receive a licence....or do you intend to give a licence to everybody who sends a review whether you use them or not. You could receive many hundreds of reviews between now and closing date....that would be a lot of licences.
  18. Welcome to the forum. I understand why you are upset, however I cannot understand why you are not impressed with Driver Booster. After all it rolled back the driver and fixed the issue, Please accept that driver booster did not force you to update the driver. It simply informed you that there was an updated driver available. ?You made the decision to proceed with the update. If you had not used DB and had simply looked on the net to see if there was an updated driver, you would have found that there is an updated driver and if you had downloaded it you would have had the same issue, and would have had to use windows driver roolback to fix the problem. Obviously the new updated driver is incompatible with your system. I strongly recommend that you do not update drivers unless you have a specific problem related to a driver, Then you should do some research with your PC manufacturer and or hardware manufacturer regarding the correct driver for your system. If it is not broken....do not fix it.
  19. It has these already. See release notes here.

  23. In SD3 "Unmovable" files are now called "Irremovable" ...this is incorrect as Irremovable would tend to mean cannot ever be moved. This should be changed back to Unmovable. Also, when you run an Analyze with SD3, the file map does not show the unmovable files.
