UCheck / Won't Download Notepad++ Version 8.0
« on: June 11, 2021, 07:45:05 pm »
I just ran UCheck on my desktop and laptop computers.  It found three updates for the desktop (Calibre, VLC, and Notepad++) and successfully installed two of them. It refused to download and install Notepad++ Version 8.0.  I went the website and downloaded it and updated it manually.  Windows 10 Pro Build 21H1, fully updated, running on a Dell XPS 8930 SE desktop.  Same thing on my Dell XPS 15 7590 laptop, running Windows 10 Pro, Build 21H1, fully updated.

I have attached report and screen image from the desktop.  Nothing appears when I hover over the "X".

After manually updating Notepad++ Version 8.0 on both computers, UCheck no longer reports the update as being available.

Thank you and have a great day.

UCheck / VLC 3.0.14 Update
« on: May 28, 2021, 08:15:55 pm »
Curzon:

The VLC update to Version 3.0.14 using VLC "Check for Updates" was a botched update on their side.  Users were instructed to manually download the new version, and execute the downloaded file themselves to complete the update.  I have Version 3.0.14 of VLC on both of my computers.  UCheck is reporting that update, yellowed out, with an exclamation mark, with no options to perform the update, even if I so wanted to do so, and no way to dismiss the "update" notice, on my laptop only.  Both computers running the current version of UCheck.  Screen snip and the report from last week (same thing this week) attached. Both computers running Windows 10 Pro Build 21H1.  The laptop is a Dell, Model XPS 15 7590.

Thank you and have a great day.

UCheck / UCheck Incorrectly Reports That Winzip Needs To Be Updated
« on: April 02, 2021, 06:27:50 pm »
Curzon:

Today UCheck reported that Winzip needed to be updated.  Interestingly, both the old and new versions have the same Build Designation (winzip_1.jpg).  When I authorized UCheck to download and install the WinZip update, it wanted to remove Winzip (I have the licenced Pro version) (winzip_2.jpg).  When I launch WinZip Pro Version 25, it informs me that I can the latest version (winzip_3.jpg).

Scan report (winzip.txt) attached.

Thank you and have a great day.

UCheck / TeamViewer Updates Not Being Reported
« on: March 05, 2021, 06:14:18 pm »
Twice in the last month, UCheck has failed to identify that new updates to TeamViewer were available.  I only found out because when I launched TeamViewer, it told me that there were new updates available.

Thank you and have a great day.

UCheck / Notepad++ Update Not Downloading Version 7.9
« on: October 04, 2020, 12:37:14 pm »
UCheck is reporting an update for Notepad++ (Version 7.9), but as soon as I click "Download", the box turns red with an "X".

When I launch Notepad++, and tell it to check for updates, it says there are no updates to Version 7.8.9.

The Notepad++ website states that there is Version 7.9.  I manually downloaded Version 7.9 and it installed properly.

Not sure if the issue is your end, or their end.  Submitted for your information.  Have a great day.

UCheck / Would You Consider Adding Smart Switch to UCheck?
« on: July 29, 2020, 08:42:06 pm »
Smart Switch is freeware that is used to transfer data between Samsung phones, but most importantly, in my view, I use it to backup the entire contents of the Samsung mobile to my computers on a weekly basis.

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration of this request.  Have a great day.

RogueKiller PREMIUM / Minor Issues
« on: May 27, 2020, 06:57:17 pm »
I have just again updated RogueKiller Premium to the latest version using UCheck.  I have consistently noticed that even though I check off to launch RogueKiller after an update, it never launches automatically.  I have to manually launch it to confirm that the program has updated.

The second minor issue is that there is a pronounced lag between when I click on RogueKiller to launch it and when it finally appears on the screen after agreeing to the UAC prompt.  The time lag is 15 seconds on my computer.  I have attached my specs.  My desktop is reasonably high performance and nothing else is running (I don't multi-task much).  Perhaps a "Loading RogueKiller" message during the launch delay would be a nice addition to the program.

Have a great day.

UCheck / Malwarebytes Update to 4.2.12?
« on: March 13, 2020, 05:38:57 pm »
UCheck is reporting a new update for Malwarebytes, but there is no news of any stable update on the Malwarebytes Forums, and manual update checks using MBAM do not report any updates, on both of my computers.  This might be a beta update, but I don't participate in beta update testing.

Please advise.  Thank you and have a great day.

UCheck / Calibre Download Size Incorrect
« on: January 03, 2020, 07:01:46 pm »
I noticed that when I am updating Calibre that the download size always shows as 340 KB, but the download takes VERY long time for 340 KB.  I checked an old Calibre installer file (3.44.0) and it was 62,576 KB, which would explain the long download times on my slow, rural Internet speed.

Have a great day.

RogueKiller PREMIUM / Update Error Affecting One Computer
« on: December 20, 2019, 06:10:33 pm »
I have two computers:

1. Dell XPS 8930 desktop (2019-10 purchase), Windows 10 Pro, x64 (Build 1909), Bitdefender 2020 Total Security, Malwarebytes Premium 4.0.4.  RKP has real-time protection modules disabled.  No issue updating that computer earlier this week to Version 14.0.2.0.

2. Dell  Studio XPS 1645 (2009-12 purchase - ten years old), Windows 10 Pro, x64 (Build 1909), Bitdefender 2020 Total Security, Malwarebytes Premium 4.0.4.  RKP has real-time protection modules disabled.  I am getting the update errors shown below.  It was previously successfully updated to RKP Version 14.0.1.0  I did a reboot between the first update error and the second and hibernation is turned off on both of my computers.

I use RKP strictly as a second-opinion on-demand scanner, once a week.  I do not want to risk conflicts with my other security software.

I have also noted that on both computers, RKP is extremely slow to load, and the new XPS 8930 has an NVMe.M2 1 TB SSD with over 800 GB free, as well as a high-end i7 processor and 32 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM.  Nothing is slow to launch on this computer, except the series 4 versions of RPK.

If you require logs or further information, please let me know.  No rush on this - enjoy your weekend.  Thank you and have a great day.

UCheck / UCheck Reporting Up-To-Date (Version 3.4.5.)
« on: December 18, 2019, 07:28:12 pm »
The news, and at Bleeping Computer, states that a new version (3.5.0) of UCheck has been released.  I have the Premium version, but when I check for the update, it reports that it is up-to-date, even though I am running Version 3.4.5.

Did you pull the update, or is there a gremlin at work here ... ?  :)

Have a great day.

RogueKiller PREMIUM / RogueKiller Finds A File That Does Not Exist?
« on: November 02, 2019, 05:51:19 pm »
Issue 1:
I ran a scan yesterday, after having installed Western Digital Discovery software on my new computer to work with my new 4 TB WD My Passport Ultra (USB-C) external hard drive.  I have attached the scan results and you can see that RK is legitimately detecting a "Suspicious Path" for an .exe file.  What is interesting is that I launched Windows Explorer today, with settings to show hidden files and protected operating system files.  I navigated to that folder and there was only one .dll file in the folder.  There was no .exe file(s) there, so what did RK detect; or, did WD Discovery delete its own file after it had served its purpose?  I went to the folder because I wanted to upload it today to VT for analysis.  I ran out of time yesterday.

Issue 2:
See also my UCheck thread here.  RKP runs the UCheck mini-scan because that is enabled in the options.  It reported that my HD Tune Pro 5.75 is out-of-date.  You will see that I made an exclusion in UCheck Premium to not check that program any more.  Apparently, the RKP mini-UCheck scan is not accessing UCheck Premium exclusion information wherever that is stored in the registry or in a config file.  Yes, I could disable the UCheck mini-scan, but it would be more elegant if the RK UCheck mini-scan "talked" to Ucheck Premium, if it detects it as being installed, before reporting an out-of-date program.

Have a great day.

UCheck / HD Tune Pro 5.75 Bug
« on: October 30, 2019, 06:17:34 pm »
I have HD Tune Pro 5.75 installed on my computer., which is the latest version.  Yesterday I ran UCheck and it reported that I needed to update the version to 5.75, which I already had.  I decided to let UCheck go ahead just to see what would happen.  It installed the free version of HDTune.  I did not make note of the version number, but I remember that is was some subversion of Version 2.  I uninstalled the free version.

Today I ran UCheck again and again it told me I needed to update HD Tune Pro to version 5.7.5, which I already have.  I told it UCheck to skip this update, and it responded that it had successfully added an exclusion, which worries me because there is a menu item about "Exclude Software" and it was not my intention to exclude HD Tune Pro updates, but only to skip "updating" it in that UCheck session.

I have attached the relevant screen shots for your information.

Thank you and have a great day.

RogueKiller PREMIUM / More User Control Over Automated Updates
« on: October 11, 2019, 05:43:15 pm »
While I most certainly applaud the frequent updates to RogueKiller, I am not really pleased that, as a user, apart from shutting off auto updates, I can not find a way to exercise control over WHEN RogueKiller updates itself.  As it stands now, RogueKiller notifies me that there is an update, and then it just starts updating itself with no further notice or options, no matter what else I am doing on the computer, which is inconvenient.

Is there something that I overlooked that I can configure?  If not, is it possible to have the option to "Update Now" or "Update Later" at a time convenient for me?

Thank you for your attention to this request/suggestion.

Have a great weekend.

UCheck / Minor Display Bug
« on: September 27, 2019, 09:21:09 pm »
Today, I did my weekly scan with UCheck and it reported both TeamViewer and OpenOffice needed to be updated.  OpenOffice went from 4.1.6 to 4.1.7, and the build number changed for TeamViewer 14.  I did not pay any attention to the TeamViewer update, but when I selected OpenOffice and told it to download, the top line of the screen told me that UCheck was downloading 4.1.6., not 4.1.7.  UCheck did download 4.1.7. and then subsequently install install the new version when so directed.  I don't know if this minor display bug affects other programs, but I thought that I would bring it to your attention and I will be watching more closely every Friday when I do my UCheck scans to see if this minor bug is replicated.

Thank you and have a great day.  UCheck is a great product and very easy to use.  I recommend it.

Regards,
-Phil
