What's RK like in terms of detection as a standalone opinion scanner?
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.
Yes, and also due to sometimes being misleading (some ads are big green download buttons, made on purpose)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?
Would you mind sharing the detection with me ?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.
Also yes the notifications can be turned off, but that's the downside of using the Free version.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.
Oh right, didn't notice the spoiler.The original HWiNFO ones are under the spoiler in post #172
