Hi eviscerator,

Sorry for my late reply.

Sorry for the issue you encountered. Currently, our program files are detected as PUP (potentially unwanted programs) by Malwarebytes.

However, PUP is a very controversial topic since it also makes legit programs as PUP.Please read the articles below including Enigma Software's lawsuit against Malwarebytes for Malwarebytes anticompetitive practices and Enigma won this lawsuit. Actually, we are basically in the same situation as Enigma.

We contacted MBAM to resolve this issue many times but the flag is still there. So it would be better if you can also help us by asking Malwarebytes to remove this detection.

In order to continue using our programs, please add our program to the exclusions list of Malwarebytes. You can refer to the "Add an exclusion" part on this page

Thank you very much for your support to IObit.

ironically malwarebytes no longer flags this software - at least smart defrag.. but the adware has caused major issues especially as i have friend with kids round sometimes and some "porn-like" about "top 10 beautiful ladies near you"  ad comes up! or fake news about a killer virus worse then covid in my area apparently.
