What's RK like in terms of detection as a standalone opinion scanner?

I always considered it an excellent second-opinion scanner, though not without its share of false positives. For instance: I just used the free scanner earlier today and it picked up HWiNFO64, which is a popular hardware monitoring utility. There was also an ad popup box in the lower right hand side of my screen during the scan, FYI.

So, the user has to exercise some judgement whenever RK flags something. I'm wondering if it still shows PUMs--potentially unwanted modifications to the registry. I believe there were like routinely four or five that are no longer picked up by RK, which is nice because it was just so much clutter in the scan report and of no importance.

I personally haven't noticed many false positives. It is a very good scanner though for more 'advanced' users because it is more sensitive against malware which can detect new malware with heuristics, etc which many other companies don't detect. It is very good at detecting Adware too.

With the popup in the right corner, I have had that sometimes, but I don't mind it because they have to make money somewhere since they have to pay their server hosting bills, staff and other expenses. I think there is a way to disable it though if you really don't like it though, even though I don't.

I personally didn't mind advertisements on the website so you could make a bit of money. But I guess you removed them due to some people complaining about it?
Yes, and also due to sometimes being misleading (some ads are big green download buttons, made on purpose)

Would you mind sharing the detection with me ?

Also yes the notifications can be turned off, but that's the downside of using the Free version.
Sometimes you eventually get some notifications asking for upgrading.

I ran RK again, no detections! Which is good, actually. The original HWiNFO ones are under the spoiler in post #172. Dunno what happened betw. now and last nite. Signature database is 20200729_095347 (latest as of now) I made sure HWiNFO was running b/c it drops a file into Users/AppData/Local/TEMP.

Very Nice! P.S. I could well have been running an older version before. If so, my fault for reporting this to begin with. :)
PPS: Does Bleeping Computer update their downloads very often?
