V - A Disastrous Update


Recommended Posts

Hello :?

After updating my ASC4 to the current version, I had to deal with multiple

BSOD's, Kernel Fault Checks, process killings ( Tiny Watcher ), browser re-installations &c...

I had to enter all passwords again and again after every login.


Just got it, this darn updated ASCService.exe changed into a screwball, it erases all

private browser settings, though they were unchecked in the ASC settings.


The only way is to disable the autorun of ASCService.exe and start ASC4 manually.


A very nice Easter Egg - thanks for that. :cry:

Hi Sarakael,


You have been using ASC for a long while, so my advice would be a clean uninstall and clean reinstall after saving your license codes if you have any. Checking every possible location for residues is also a good call.


This should include ASC5 Beta3 too.

Thanks for the quick replies.


I tried this with a manually registry cleaning on top - no chance.

All passwords erased.

After that I disabled the AutoSweep - passwords still saved.

But now I've graphical problems...

I disable ASCService.exe - too many bugs.


##Privacy Sweep runs like a charm ##

I had the exact same issue with both the V4.1 update and the V5beta:Autoscan removed things NOT checked.I temporarily lost some PWs and my browser's Homepage changed to my ISP's default log-in page.Luckily there were no BSODs.V5 beta is uninstalled at the moment as it seems far too"aggressive" in Registry cleaning.

I've read that Passwords are stored in a system-Hidden file.

File path:



I've never tried to access it, since we don't use PWs.

So, I don't know how difficult to it is to access.

I think it's an encripted file.

I don't see why any of the ASC utilities would be accessing it? :?:


Edit - I found the files in the config folder, but have not been able to read them yet.

(there are 5 files in that folder with the .iobit extension also)

I'm wondering if those .iobit config files are Not being replaced or updated,

as new versions are being Installed? :?:

Causing a problem.


I doubt that all 5 of those files are Needed on this computer,

but how would you know which to delete,

and can they even be deleted?

(without putting a bullet through the drive, that is) :lol:
