  1. Successfully deleted: [Task] C:\WINDOWS\system32\tasks\PCDEventLauncherTask Successfully deleted: [Task] C:\WINDOWS\system32\tasks\PCDoctorBackgroundMonitorTask Well it didn't let me have a choice to delete, or not delete, it just did it. (I am using Win10) Now my scheduled CheckUp is disabled from Dell. All of the monitored programs disappeared from the taskbar. (except 2) I don't know if they are running now, or not. I luckily did a full backup today with my free backup software. But I went to my external hard drive, and it did not find those particular files. I went to Recycle Bin,

  4. I'd like to start by saying JRT is a fantastic tool. It has become a critical part of my arsenal of malware, adware, and PUP removal tools which I use on an almost daily basis. However, here are two simple ideas I have that I think would make the program even better. I use a script that copies all of the software tools I use from my flash drive and places them into a folder on the desktop. When I run JRT and it needs an update, the program will download and place the new version in a new folder on the desktop. My suggestion is that the new folder be created in the directory that JRT is runni
  5.

  6. v7.6.4 was successfully self updated to v8.0.0 while leaving the previous versions in place on a W10 Pro TH2 1511 (10.0.10586.3) x64, 8.1 (6.3.9600) x64 and XP Home (5.1.2600) SP3 x86 systems so far. All systems ran JRT 8.0.0 to completion and produced the usual output report windows. All runs deleted some elements of existing HTTPS-Everywhere installs without seemingly crippling those browser add-ons. No false positives have been noted and run time till completion seems similar to the the last few versions. None of the typical VirusTotal.com false positives were noted for the 8.0.0 execut

  9. Hello how are you? I have a very slow PC. I think it might be malware, as it was not so slow. I try to run the Adwcleaner, does not open, try to open the JRT does not open, I tried to install Avast does not open the installer tried to install Panda Cloud does not open. Run MalwareBytes, and removed 463 PUP's, but the problem still persists. I await your help. Thank you.
  10. I have some things to says about your tool and this seems the only way to reach you. 1) Please create a proper website with contact information. It looks undone and shady the way it is now. 2) When checking for malware, your tool stops the driver of my Wacom graphic tablet, but forgets to turn it on again after it's finished. I have to restart Windows to be able to move the mouse cursor again. 3) I installed the Software Informer update checker and you simply deinstalled it again without telling me what kind of malware it is.
