PC Matic determined IObit files were malware

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

Last night I ran a PC Matic scan which determined a whole long list of IObit files were malware - these were for free installs of Uninstaller and Smart Defrag 5 - neither works today.

 

What's interesting is that these IObit programs and PC Matic have co-existed on my PC for years and I'm confused by this change.

 

Machine runs on Win 10 32 bit

 

Your input, much appreciated.

 

Thanks, Benn

iObit has been classified as a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application) by our Malware Research team based on their installation behaviors and Digital Signature status.

 

If you wish to run their programs with PC Matic, then please unquarantine the files removed and white list them.

 

If you wish to use a reputable Uninstaller, then I would recommend Revo Uninstaller:  https://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

Hey Benn, 

 

PC Matic has a defragger built in that I prefer to others. When a scan is run, scheduled or manually, you have the option of allowing it to defrag the drive(s) during its cleanup/repair phase. I run the Full Disk Optimization weekly via scheduled scan. I have mine set for the wee hours because I have 4, 3TB hard drives to scan and defrag and that's never an expedient thing. :rofl3:

 

Hope that helps, 

 

Tx
