  2. I checked several rather militant threads castigating MWB for listing Advanced Systemcare as a PUP. My experience has been the opposite. My ancient XP desktop has begun acting up after a series of rapid fire "updates" by ASC and Iobit Malware Fighter. The thing started running slow, bouncing out of websites I've used for years and generally giving me hassle. I did some research into this China-based software and didn't like what I saw - having shared some of the same problems of late as others. I know XP is ancient history, but until I can afford to buy several $800 software programs to replace programs that run perfectly well for me on XP, I'm not going to ditch all that for Microsoft's convenience or anyone else's. I figured I would just close down ASC and MW Fighter and uninstall them. My ISP gives me a full up version of Norton 360 that does all that, so I'm dumping several duplication-of-service memory resident programs to make the old girl lean and smooth. The next boot-up I'd lost my boot.ini file and all sorts of corruption messages came up. I ran Kaspersky's rootkit killer. It came up clean. MWB found some pups and a bit of adware that Iobit missed. It reminds me of a hotel guest that trashed the room when he checked out. I'm not sure ASC didn't throw some kind of tantrum on the way out. Now Norton 360 won't run the live anti-virus update and I can't reinstall it because of a corrupt memory reference I get when I run Norton's remove and reinstall utility. So I'm without anti-virus protection and I can't get any other similar protection utilities to run right. I'm about to run my Glary Utilities scan, but it being a direct competitor of Iobit, I'm almost afraid of what will happen if I do. I've had to wipe and reinstall the boot.ini file three times now. I get it working and I lose it when I try to reboot. I get this feeling that if I reinstall ASC and Iobit Malware Fighter that all will be well again. Am I being paranoid or is it possible the Chinese are jerking me around because I removed their software. It wasn't easy to uninstall in the first place.. ASC would certainly be a great way to get inside a lot of American computers and do God knows what. Maybe I'm just frustrated and overdo for an upgrade on my desktop. I'm going to hate losing Photoshop and Pagemaker. They still work great and do what I want them to do. I don't want to pay monthly fees to use them. I don't want to learn a bunch of new software. I'm 63 and I have to much to do to have to go back and relearn a bunch of software written by a bunch of 20-somethings who haven't a clue how people actually think and couldn't make an intuitive command sequence to save their own lives.

  3. It seems Malwarebytes is going to war with Iobit (Advanced SystemCare) and thereby closing previous threads about their decision to detect ASC as PUP and therefore deleting ASC from people's systems. As one can see from the previous threads (which have been closed from further comments by MWB)....everyone disagrees with this position of MWB. Why is MWB closing these threads from further comments?? Because they don't want people talking about it.....because they can see the public backlash and would prefer to hide from it instead reversing this position. Strange, as I don't see ASC detecting MWB as a bad program and thereby deleting it. Most everyone here has had both MWB and Advanced SystemCare installed on their computers for many years and working fine with both programs. Yet, MWB decides to detect/delete ASC from everyone's system as of a few weeks ago. Look at the posts!! Look at people's responses!! MWB keeps saying their position is justified...that ASC is a PUP (based on their criteria)....and yet no one agrees. So what does MWB do?? They close these threads and hide. Malwarebytes needs to rethink their position here. They need to reverse their decision on Iobit / Advanced SystemCare so that both can co-exist once again. Strop dragging the public into your legal battles (shame on you MWB!!)!! Listen to what the public is saying that ASC is NOT malware, PUP, or anything disruptive to anyone's computer!!! Stop closing these threads as it only makes it look worse. Stop hiding!! How many subscribers are you willing to lose before you realize this was the wrong decision??!!
  4. is anyone else having this problem? i have all the latest updates from the IOBit product im using and also the latest free version of MB 3.06 IOBit product im using currently being ID'ed a threat is the following: ADVANCED SYSTEMCARE 10 PRO 10.2.0 (ACTIVATED FULL PAID VERSION) it wasnt doing this a week ago when i was using MB 3.05 and ran a full scan. a week ago i had same current builds of IOBit products except yesterday i got all the latest Microsoft cumulative and other updates as well for March 2017. i thought it mightve been a current issue with MB 3.05 so i updated to 3.06 and the problem remains.
  5. I realize you guys were ripped off by IObit with them stealing your malware definitions and I've respected that by not purchasing their Malware Fighter product; however, that doesn't give Malwarebytes the right to target IObit's other programs that customers, like me, have legitimately paid for. What they did was wrong! However, I have been a customer of theirs long before that happened and have been happy with their other software that I've been using for years. Your determination to quarantine/remove these other programs from my computer is becoming obnoxious. I've told your Malwarebytes software to even ignore the IObit folder and it STILL tries to remove their software! It appears from my perspective that even though you have a legitimate beef with them, you are taking things a bit too far! I love Malwarebytes, but sadly you will lose a long time customer if this continues! Go after IObit!...Sure, do that!...But DON'T put your customers in the middle of your feud and disdain for IObit! Thank you. Kind regards.
