Is it safe?


Recommended Posts


I had Iobit Malware Fighter Installed, it worked very nice for a cupple of months. Don't recall the version.

Every time I clicked update it would update immediately.then scan.

Then I got a message today suggesting to upgrade to the newest (free) version , I agreed and upgraded.

Once I opened it I saw it was not updated,and I wanted to update before scanning, but than I had something annoying:there are 3 options how to update but it wouldn't let you chose non, only a message to upgrade to the (paid) pro version is possible. and it says that this one has automatic updates.

So I removed that new versionof Iobit , and wanted to reinstall my good old Iobit malware Fighter. In the site I didn't found V1 (don't recall what I had) so I chose free V2 (hoping it won't be the same one that can't be updated)... But when I chose the link to download setup .exe file, my windows alarms me that the file is suspicius and recommends me not to open.

by the way - when chosing to download Iobit directs me to download.cnet.com, to get the file.

So I never finished reinstallation, because I'm not sure about the link.

Shall I install? is it safe and Win is crazy?


and after I get from you a safe link I need to seehow to overcome the updateproblem....:roll:.
