IMF Feedback

Recommended Posts

Had been using IOBit 360.

Switched to IMF. Scans showed nothing.

After first upgrade, found 4 to 9 trojans, etc. in old files on each of 3 drives.


After complete scan of C & D, my ext USB2 HDD crashed the system instantly upon connection. It's in a combo enclosure, and the IEEE-1394 interface works. Can't fix the USB2 interface for HDD. Works fine for mem sticks, Activesync, scanner, etc.


Just upgraded to v 1.11 and did a smart scan. IMF is now complaining about a new copy of Activesync 4.5--another Trojan. I doubt it!


I suspect IMF screwed the USB2 interface.

So, I believed that IMF was satisfied that these old backup files were clean. In fact they had been scanned, eventually, in USB2 enclosures with IMF and avast AV.


Now I have replaced my HDD's with larger capacity units, and moved my old files into the Windows box on a new drive on the ATA/IDE interface.


Surprise! Google tells me I "can't search for now, because this machine is sending too many requests!" Then Microsoft Security calls me and asks if I know that I have a "pirate machine" operating on the premises. And they want to help me fix it?!


No thanks.


So I scanned all drives with avast AV and IMF. AV found 31 problems, as old as ten years ago. IMF found 2 each, trojan:backdoor and trojan:dropper. All in the old files.


Q: Why do these applications find problems when scanning through ATA/IDE interface, that they miss, when scanning through USB2?
