  1. Hi folks, I downloaded the free version of EaseUS partition manager yesterday and shortly after running it following installation, further installation of unwanted programs took place. I cannot be 100% certain that the EaseUS partition manager contains these but it has to be more than coincidence as they installed a matter of seconds after I ran EaseUS for the first time. This is on a fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit with few other applications. Details of the unwanted software: - conduit toolbar / extension / addon / plugin - seen in Chrome and Firefox toolbars - trustworthy toolbar extension plugin - seen in Firefox - AVG PC tune up installed Conduit replaces the default search engine with theirs and also the startup page URL. It's installed as a toolbar in Chrome for certain and I think Firefox as well. It is also installed as Windows application. Trustworthy toolbar is installed in firefox. Removal via standard Uninstall a program in Windows - remove Conduit remove conduit from search engines list in Chrome in settings remove conduit url from setting for page to open when chrome starts change home page url back to what you want in standard settings disable conduit and trustworthy addon / plugin / extension / toolbar in firefox Remove AVG tuneup via standard uninstall that seams to get rid of the visible manifestions - but I am now paranoid about what is lurking unseen, root kit I feel that I am justified in suspecting EaseUS as a carrier of these programs as all of it happened right after running EaseUS for the first time. I have used this software before and found it to be useful without problems, so it would appear that this malware has been included in more recent versions. Other reasons why I am suspicious of it: - It's free software - there's a lot of good free honest software out there but I guess they want to make their money in this case some how - by ad revenue from changing browser URL to the conduit search engine - It is made in a country that are among those that have been suggested in reports as the source of hacking on large scale at large organisation Norton did not detect any issue with the epm.exe install package downloaded that contains the EaseUS partition manager - and presumably suspected of containing above unwanted software. I'm rather disappointed in EaseUS if they have included this stuff in their installation.
