#42,43 Frank: My apologies to you and anyone else without the knowledge to alter file permisions but it would be foolish to publish a step-bye step workaround against any badware as it then becomes explicitly public information giving the badware designers a perfect opertunity to create a countermeasure with very little thought.

google is often your friend when seeking out how to do specific technical things, this is just an unusual specific application of a well documented access control mechanisim.

@17 Sarah : I agree all download managers have to use your bandwidth to download something but if the source file is infected it can even infect your flash player( if its a video) or temp folder of your browser where all streamed media played are kept. If you are looking for extra bit of security u can configure download manager like flashget to use a secure proxy and have having real time protection also helps. Flashget also has the ability to download torrents so it depends upon the user what is he downloading and from where.

This offer is certainly not needed by most people. The excellent free Audacity will record everything you throw at it, and doesn't include hard to uninstall ad ware. Some have issues with recording from their soundcard with no "record what you hear" or "Stereo Mix" option available. These options can most likely be found on your master driver disk that came with your computer. If it isn't installed, then your computer maker was pressured by Microsoft and doesn't want you getting music for free by recording it. The fight against piracy goes on...

#2 - all software has bugs. All software.

But my real problem is with the way they describe this software.

"lets you easily create amazing music".

uh...no. This is not creating music! This is ripping or stripping or copying someone else's music. Nothing to do with creation, which would suggest authorship - and intellectual property.

#25 freecat: and #1 etc, a simple and often effective workaround for these persistent badware executables is to delete it, outside windows if needed, then create a zero byte length file of the same name in same location and change the permisions on the file to deny everything for all the security contexts loaded in the advanced security settings.

I've never had any malware figure that out as they do not assume an end user will change the permissions on a file and so put no mechanisim in place to change them back when they want to restore the badware executable.

Just the fact that "Marie White" won't answer questions, says more than enough for me. I would not have downloaded the giveaway anyway, because I have no need for it, but from reading the comments and seeing the posts that "Marie White" wrote, even if I had wanted to download that software, I would have changed my mind. Suspicious, suspicious, suspicious....

AShelper

Virustotal didn't see any virus in this file:
https://www.virustotal.com/nl/file/d444aca6c76754d8d4e4db89809a0c5b38ccd0e6099211cb26b74e95bc496bce/analysis/

On this Win7-64 it is stored in : C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Aimersoft\Aimersoft Helper Compact

Another file AsUpLoad.exe is different: 2 out of 51; different kind of virus?
https://www.virustotal.com/nl/file/01a3a12f1d6895b4ac8accaf41d913314c1c4a271fd694ca765eb4687a8a7f94/analysis/

I have turned ashelper off by renaming the map "Aimersoft Helper Compact" and restarting Windows.

Aimersoft Music Recorder did work well. It recorded the song, but no single musicid:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10366431/_GOTD/AimersoftMusicRecorder100_20140401/ashelperTurnedOff.png

After i turned ashelper on, the program showed musicid:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10366431/_GOTD/AimersoftMusicRecorder100_20140401/ashelperTurnedOn.png

The program has to send some data to the Internet to get the musicid.
Therefore it is a suspicious program by sending data to the internet.

But a virus: I don't think so.

The description is VERY misleading!! The claim is that I will be able to "CREATE amazing music" all by myself. This program doesn't let me create anything at all. It lets me record what others have created, and then do funky manipulation of that.

If that's what someone wants, then perhaps this is an okay program, but it is NOT what is being advertised.

Just ran a brief test. I launched my Elpis Pandora player and then this Music Recorder. I love how it separates the songs into individual tracks. I suspect I will be able to burn these into a regular CD. My other software created one big MP3 file.

This program also has its own player. That's a nice feature I wasn't expecting.

I'm sure I'll be doing lots with this program.

This program leaves the processor running at sixteen to eighteen percent even while it's idle. The splash screen is just a waste of time and it's useless. Running WinXp so this may not affect other OS's.

Yes, #1 is correct I have a pesky "contentagent.exe" that has been on my machine from a past Aimersoft DVD download. My Malwarebytes continually stops it from doing anything, but it is annoying. I have found it and deleted it but something lese in my system recreates it. Have not found a way to get rid of it permanently, FWIW.

ASHelper.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files", the security rating is 66% dangerous. The file size is 1,666,560 bytes. The program is not visible. The process starts when Windows starts (see Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run). The process listens for or sends data on open ports to a LAN or the Internet. The ASHelper.exe file is not a Windows core file. ASHelper.exe is able to record inputs and manipulate other programs.

Not sure how this enables one to CREATE music, amazing or otherwise... I don't see any compositional features, multi-track/multi-device recording or dubing/over-dubing. Seems focussed on ripping pre-created music from streaming sources which is nothing special and the furtherest possible from a creative action IMHO.

@1 Sol, @3 nikos and others

Just refound a not uptodate alphabetic list of Wondershare affiliates, unfortunately I hadn't stored source address too:
4Easysoft
4Media
4Videosoft
AirproSoft
Aimersoft
Aiseesoft
AppleXsoft
Aunsoft
AVAide

Cucusoft
Daniusoft
Doremisoft
iFunia
iMacSoft
ImTOO Software Studio
iSkysoft
Joboshare
Mac DVD Ripper Soft
Pavtube
Topmediasoft
Wondershare
Xilisoft

I can't tell whether they all install this ashelper.exe. But according to @12 SoftwareJunkie it's easy to remove.
My question to SoftwareJunkie: Is there any automatism for ashelper.exe reinstall and/or autostart? Does this software want/need admin rights? Free softwares like Audacitiy do without and even are portable.

I'd like to ask "marie white" from "Aimersoft Studio" (both names being very rare for chinese people) why often the same software partly with slight differences is sold under different names and companies. This is a question I found again and again in internet over the years and I'd like to give a chance of answering. And please inform us as this is partly second hand information if any part is incorrect.
Please keep in mind:
Even missing answer is informative for all of us.

I can't remember which company even tries to sell (!) mere frontends for free softwares like Ffmpeg and Virtual Dub. Does anybody remember? Thanks.

Seems worthless.. Who in today's day n age records music online, when they can easily find flac files and mp3 320kbps online!?

Now if you wanna listen to your own voice for some singing practice, auditions or something, there's always http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Audio/Audio-Editors-Recorders/Moo0-VoiceRecorder.shtml

And if you really do wanna record music online here you go.

2. http://download.cnet.com/Free-Sound-Recorder/3000-2170_4-10698910.html

Both are free but very capable music recorders. Funny how the word "music recorders" brings back memories of a bulky box with loud music! Times have really changed...

Happy downloading fellas!!

P.S: CNET includes broswer hijackers in their downloads. Keep your eyes open while accepting the terms.

@ 12. SoftwareJunkie - I recommend you do a little more research. As provided in the screenprint by 11. Ootje - this installs a process, which always runs in the background. Deleting processes is not the recommended method of removing programs, since it will often never be fully removed. This obviously installs associated registry entries, including start-up items. Wondershare/Aimersoft, do not provide an uninstaller for their xxHelper files. There's even been reports by users that it keeps re-appearing even when they delete the helper file. Check this link out - http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/forums/topic/14609

There was also a thread about it on the Wondershare forums, where people complained about it and some believed it acted more like malware because it keeps re-appearing even after deleting it. But guess what, Wondershare deleted that thread...Surprising hey?

@3 I had no problem deleting the file ashelper.exe. I didn't even need admin privileges. Had I any issues I would have used IObit Unlocker. Alternatively people can simply change the file extention from .exe to .ex or .txt. It becomes unusable by the program and can easily be restored if need be. The program works fine without it so it's suspicious but easy to remove or disable.

So I right clicked it and realized the files had to be extracted. Zip file. Hmn... did so and now I have the GOTD setup.exe file. Click on that....nothing. Try again....nothing. Run as administrator? Nope. Download it one more time. Same results. Time Freeze was turned on all the time. No problem having to uninstall. Restart....goodbye.

Looks like the same version given away here a few months ago....so the annoying issue mentioned by #1 should still apply!

I've just tried it using Toolwize Timefreeze and it works fine....yes, it's a decent Music recorder but the above issue makes me leery of installing it as well!!

OK, NO PROBLEM!!

How about a FREE & PORTABLE FREE music downloader app, which can flawlessly search, find and download over 100 million MP3 songs from the NET with unmatchable speed and best output quality, by song title, artist name, album or edition?
Can download multiple songs at the same time, since it supports multi-thread downloading, and it's also compatible with any mp3 players out there, including iPad, iPhone, cell phone, PSP, iPod, etc....

Aimersoft, Wondershare, iskysoft - they will always install that "helper" file, which is arguably Adware according to previous posts (do a google search).

I had the same question about ashelper.exe (or wshelper.exe for Wondershare branded apps) for a recent Aimersoft giveaway - I never got any answers so I decided to proceed installing the app, only to find that ashelper.exe always gets installed (It may not be the case this time around, but I'd be surprised if it no longer comes with ashelper.exe, therefore, I just don't bother with Wondershare and its affiliated brands anymore)

Cheers,

Version 1.0.0.. it seems this is the very first version of this music recorder, it might have bugs so I will give it a pass.

If you want to download music,streaming audio/video from youtube etc,
get a decent download manager like eagleget or flashget :

http://www.eagleget.com/ FREE portable
www.flashget.com FREE

For editing audio, I am sure everyone has heard about the AUDACITY

By using Audacity, you can not only record streaming audio but edit it as well.

http://audacity.sourceforge.net

NCH software Soundtap allows you to record any sound played on your computer

Just curious about a very important issue: has Aimersoft eliminated the ashelper.exe that tends to install with their applications, that embeds itself in Startup, and is a bear to get rid of? Had to fight it off from the last few Aimersoft giveaways here.
I hope so, their programs (from previous giveawayoftheday) tend to be decent, but the ashelper.exe is a deal killer, and makes me leery of installing any more of their software.
