Dear users,

we are aware of the situation with Google blocking our site for some reason.

We have proved to be the source of the reliable software for many years and we are sure that this is a misunderstanding and a false positive reaction.

We have already contacted Google regarding this situation and hope the warning will be removed in the nearest future.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
GOTD team

so Chrome said it was malicious, so I used IE to download no issues.

Went to install and Avast tells me its a win32: Evo-gen, which is a program with trojan like properties.

so it installed its self anyway, and I went to run the setup again (because I thought it didn't work) and much to my disbelief the idoo spyware blocked its setup file saying it was malicious lol wth.

p.s since installing my browser keeps closing itself down for no reason.

time to clean house

First thing I did was check out the dev's website. I noticed some sites that they claim to have gotten awards from, so I checked it out. None of the sites have awarded Idoo anything and only 2 has any Idoo software available to download from them. Now thinking that maybe this should be warning enough I decided to try it anyway. WOW BAD IDEA. First the thing crashed half way through a scan then it disabled my Microsoft antivirus and malicious software tool and if I restarted them it would just shut them down immediately.

In case you doubt I recorded it. Watch here https://youtu.be/-62_982Q4QQ

Well, perhaps the little light bulb in my head is brighter than it appears to me, but if I consider the potential up-side of the possibly working software, against the potential down-side of the possible malware implications of same, the risk doesn't seem worth the experience.

That's really my point.

Mike OD, you are right. No-one reads the "privacy" policies of Google that have changed through the years: Google IS "big brother" that is watching every move you make. According to Google that is legal, because you agreed to their eula: https://www.google.nl/intl/en/policies/terms/regional.html . If you read between the lines, than you get a bit of a scope of the operations of Google. Is it legal when it conflicts the privacy laws of a lot of countries? Probably, some companies get so big the management thinks they can get away with anything...

There is something not quite right with this offering, firstly the blocking by Google and now when the issue has been resolved I find that when installing the software Norton alerted me with the message UNAUTHORISED ACCESS BLOCKED SAPE>Heur.800D0 was detected. I checked this on Norton's website and saw this: is a heuristic detection designed to generically detect malicious files. A file detected by this detection name is deemed by Symantec to pose a risk to users and is therefore blocked from accessing the computer. Instant uninstall and virus check completed.

I understand that not everyone speaks english and many software developers are in other countries, however, if you are going to display your company's website and product info in English, have someone who speaks English proof read it for you. You are a business for god sake. I went to this company's website to just read more about the software before installing it, and the about page about killed me. How do you expect someone to have confidence in your software skills and install a program meant to protect my computer when you cannot not even have your website's grammar proofed and correct? I was willing to give this a chance but not now. If your own website is messed up then i cannot trust this software will do what it claims to do.

“Successfully Activated” message appears then the Foxpro browser opens but program installation repeatedly fails.
This has happened with several other giveaways e.g. HDSentinal and may relate to users' operating system / version.

Last time, the Giveaway team answered "Hello, thank you for contacting GOTD project team! We are aware of this issue and our team is working on it."

The fault was never fixed then and appears to be ongoing.

I'm running Windows 10 64 bit. Seems to work alongside Windows Defender and Firewall with no problems so far. This software is very light on resources.

Does anyone know how to turn off that annoying "POP" sound every time you make a menu selection within the program? That's really irritating.

Bob, Windows always does this if you install any AV in addition to Windows Defender, because 2 AVs running at the same time can interfere with each other and slow your computer.

Installed perfectly on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I did temporarily disable my anti-virus protection because programs don't install correctly due to GOTD's software wrapper (setup.exe)

I tried a Quick Scan (98,812 files) and found 0 threats. This concerns me as I have the full package of Nirsoft Utilities. About 6 of these programs are password retrievers and I have to exclude this directory for other spyware, malware and/or anti-virprograms. Even though they are false positives, idoo AntiSpyware Pro did not detect any problems. My AVG Anti-virus identified bulletspassview.exe as HackTool.ancc. It identified chromepass.exe as HackTool.ASTW, dialupass as HackTool.AKLV and so on. My anti-virus detects 13 threats from the Nirsoft folder. idoo AntiSpyware Pro detects 0.

idooAS.exe and update.dat are added to the firewall rules.

My AVG just popped up identifying update.dat as potentially dangerous.

I'll post back after further testing.

forensic guy,
I have the full Nirsoft suite too and Avast needs an exception to the rules but MalwareBytes Anti-Malware does not so maybe some programs are better at identifying false positives and this is one of them.

Let's go through some file stats............There is some very strange programming here. Some files ending in .fne are really executable files. Anvir Task Manager actually states echartbar.dll, rather than echartbar.fne. Extmenu.fne is really extmenu.dll
de.dat is an executable file that is actually Cedrick Collomb's Unlocker 1.7.0

You can visit the site here:
http://www.emptyloop.com/unlocker/

Here is a link to a Utube video (no sound) for idoo AntiSpyware Pro:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWHL2uK-wLE

If you don't have Anvir Task Manager Free, I highly recommend you download and use it. It's packed full of features. It's best ability is to catch entries that are trying to be a scheduled task or run at startup. On this new install, I chose to delete the program from trying to create a scheduled task.

One the welcome screen upon setup it states idoo Ant-Spyware Pro "We secure your Internet life with the ultimate security utilities like Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Malware, Anti-Rootkit and so on". Please take time to read the whole statement and what it defends against.

Malwarebytes identified the following files in the C:\Program Files\idoo AntiSpyware Pro directory"
update.dat, upgo.dat, uptime.dat, and WMIreg.exe

On top of everything, when running a scan, don't click on any other buttons in the program. Mine crashed, had to kill it manually and on restart, the idooAS.exe had been deleted and I had to re-install.

I'm guessing this is version 1.0 of the program and I think we're guinea pigs on this one as it requires much more testing.

Reply   |   Comment by forensic guy  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

forensic guy, I'm not sure what full package means; I've been using Nirsoft aka Nirsofter software for many years and have been using NirLauncher aka Nirsofter Package as long as it's been out and every time they update NirLauncher they include a few programs that weren't in the previous NirLauncher which means they exclude some that were. I just copy all the programs from the previous version and paste them into a different folder; as such I've amassed a large selection of NirSoft programs. I've said all that more for the people who may not be aware of NirSoft or NirLaunch ask NirSoft Package. As such I've had different security software identify many of NirSoft's programs as malicious (false positive).

I've always felt the developers of these security programs (techy types) should be aware of NirSoft and the programs that will give a false positive and I've long felt they should exclude these programs internally, but most have not.

Perhaps, I don't know, but perhaps "idoo" has already excluded these programs internally. Only someone from "idoo" can answer that question. It's early morning in China; most likely the reason someone from "idoo" hasn't responded to many posts, including yours.

Just saying perhaps.

JonE,
"I've always felt the developers of these security programs (techy types) should be aware of NirSoft and the programs that will give a false positive and I've long felt they should exclude these programs internally, but most have not."

I have always considered it the non-security program developer's (in this case, NirSoft's) responsibility to contact the AV sites in order to get their own software white-listed. You can send a report of individual programs to your AV-software developer yourself, also, for them to personally inspect it. I have reported false positives to Norton in this way, and the program was thereafter whitelisted.

Idoo wrote: "...idoo can intelligently scan and kill unknown Trojan viruses...", if that is the case then we no longer need any other virus protection from any company, this is the panacea of all anti virus software.
What I'm afraid of is that many already installed programs can falsely be diagnosed and disabled and create a big mess out of your computer.

Many viruses are attached to window drivers, software and stand alone as communication drivers and many morph at certain time and certain combination of events or remotely activated by a rogue hacker(s).

Salvia, You can not kill a virus if it is unknown as claimed by idoo, otherwise, heuristic analysis is useless when a virus is embedded inside software or drivers or split in many pieces.

First of all:
http://www.idoosoft.com/antivirus-software.htm
is send for a test to Virustotal.com; nothing found:
https://www.virustotal.com/nl/url/1426f98d76e8836a1c5f44b5d2050f65ac7c4ba66ee8f43abaa1e2e90100af58/analysis/1458480312/

The GOTD-sites are today suspicious.
And why?
The result of Virustotal of scanning files3.giveawayoftheday.com
is:
https://www.virustotal.com/nl/url/46f2d210c2a1cdba0406b13aa9e0a51abc4f298c2b9a65b885a63878d49357c2/analysis/1458479155/
Just Google Safebrowsing has a problem.
The same with files2.giveawayoftheday.com:
https://www.virustotal.com/nl/url/aebaeb8e91f5051c2c07c83770ce623530ac4c2c2e89bc626bee736b1b6c28e1/analysis/1458479336/
It is possible that Google has a problem: on this site is placed a program today to investigate a Windows for malware/spyware etc.
And therefore the program has to investigate Windows and goes deeper in the system than a normal program would do.
Disk-access, file-access, registry access etc.
And also the signatures of many malware programs is stored in the GOTD-program.

Google should investigate the site and all of the files. And then act on it.
The best is today.
Today's learning: Maybe Giveaway should send the file to Google one or two day's ahead to let them investigate it. So this will not be a problem on the giveaway-day self.

martin, I use Firefox and it is totally up to date. However, when I try to install idoo, a message pops up that says it's blocked...."May contain a virus or spyware." I was able to override the block by selecting to download it anyway. I suspect that this is occurring because of something within the software itself that FF thinks is a virus or spyware, when it's actually to block these interlopers.

FWIW there's one problem with the GOTD sites & Firefox 45.0.1 running in Private mode -- when you click the Facebook link to share nothing happens. The 2nd problem is that when you download the GOTD zip files, both Chrome & Firefox want to block it -- Firefox easily lets you OK it anyway.

That 2nd problem May be similar to problems with security software like Kaspersky -- they can't look inside the encrypted GOTD wrapper to see what it holds, so label it bad automatically.

Monitoring the installation of both the game GOTD & the regular GOTD in a VBox win7 32 bit VM, neither does anything out of the ordinary -- the game makes no changes while the regular GOTD offer has Very low impact on Windows. In the VM Microsoft Security Essentials does not find a problem with either. Performing a scan with McAfee gives the game a pass, but finds 4 suspect files in the regular GOTD, idoo AntiSpyware Pro -- update.dat, upgo.dat, uptime.dat, & WMIreg.exe.

The digital signature for idoo AntiSpyware Pro lists Hengyida Information Technology CO.,LTD. & eastrivergroup@yahoo.com -- Google on either & you'll find reports of adware... Note: it's not unheard of for trial versions of apps on GOTD to include usually optional add-ons, while the GOTD has those stripped out. Note 2: I did not attempt to verify whether claims of adware or McAfee's detection of the 4 files were false or not -- I simply wanted to see what happened when I tried to download & install, which both did cleanly.

Aside from some evident confusion over just what this software protects against -- Trojan virus? Oh really? -- there's the rather more important fact that it seems never to have been crash-tested anywhere. That's a serious obstacle to idoo AntiSpyware Pro bedding in on anyone's computer, and one which the developer would be well advised to address as a priority because as this list demonstrates:

http://www.av-comparatives.org/av-vendors/

so many players currently exist in this sector that only those which have been tested are worthy of consideration.

As that list shows, AVComparatives -- far and away the best research resource of its type -- hasn't even heard of idoo, still less examined idoo AntiSpyware Pro to see if the developer's claims are credible.

Thanks, then, GOTD, but no thanks. Today's developer does itself no favours by being so cavalier in describing what it thinks it is doing with this product; absent external AV analysis and verification, idoo AntiSpyware Pro is going to appeal only to those who trust where they cannot see. . .

I scanned the Setup.exe file with four different Virus scanners and no threat were reported by any of them. But when I went to install the program a warning from BitDefender popped up so I cancelled the install. This is an issue that will have to be corrected before I (probably many others as well) I will install the software.

I suggest that GOTD install and test their offerings before prmoting them as GiveAway Of the Day.

Not many glowing reports about this software, :-(

Firefox blocked this program when I downloaded it, citing it had virus', malware and all sorts of bugs, but it was the developers website that put-paid to my interest. The developers website must be the MOST irritating site I have visited in a long time. All the pages of the software they market sort of "rotates" every 3 seconds or so, therefore, begin reading the blurb and you get left in the lurch when it brings on the second page and three seconds or so later, a third page enters the scene. Thus, you can never finish reading what you began unless you have the patience to stick around for about 6 seconds for the page you had started reappears again.
Thanks GOTD but no thanks to you idoo software. Try sorting your website out to make it a more pleasurable experience.

Hughjocapivvy, 'you can never finish reading what you began' is not correct: you only have to click one of the buttons and the rotation stops.

justpassingby,
I am very well aware of those "buttons" that stops the rotating of screens on websites, but if these "buttons" are not present, you cannot press them to stop it. I found NO buttons on the idoo website that would stop the screens from changing. Check it out.

Well what a totally useless offering it is today. Google blocks the website and won't allow the download. Tried to IE (yes, yes I know it's crap but any port in a storm) and this time Norton blocked access to the site and deleted the download as being potentially harmful ... I find it rather ironic that software that is supposed to protect your PC from the nasties is being detected as being one itself. Had to check date thought I might have overslept and it was 1st April. Now to go and waste my time doing something useful.

lenny, As far as other anti virus programs or GOOGLE (crap) Of course they are going to smash a new antivi prog. It's in their best interest. Besides no system is perfect. Actualy all anyone has to do is take their time with any website. Know your sites thoughroly and you won't need anything but what comes with your p.c. standard. Any add ons of antivirus progs is just clutter in the mix. Just practice safe browzing and you won't need any antivirus progs.

Installed on Windows 7 64 Bit Pro without incident. Easy registration. idoo AntiSpyware Pro found 2 Trojans and many other security breaches probably because I download a lot. Nice program. Note: I disabled my Avast! for two minutes while I installed it. My Google Chrome didn't go off because I don't use that junk. Thanks GOTD!

Scott,
Yeah I don't use Google Chrome either as I don't like programs that have "phone home" spyware software bundled with them.
Google Earth is worse though as It is not able to be turned off.

Complaining about a free piece of software just because it has a 1 year license? Seriously? The software acquired from this site is for the purpose of testing, getting ideas to improve, get the name out for new companies, etc... Let us not mention at all that even though this is good for "only" one year, but you also get tech support AND upgrades for that year (something that happens very seldom here). Some people want everything for nothing, or they have to throw a childish fit i guess. As for this particular program, I can't leave a review, good, nor bad. Have a popup saying:

The site ahead contains harmful programs

Attackers on files2.giveawayoftheday.com might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience (for example, by changing your homepage or showing extra ads on sites you visit).


No big loss, I've already gotten several running. I'd recomend the developer gets this fixed right away or there will be very little in the way of testing and actual feedback, with the exception of the people whining about it only being for a year. Have a wonderful day everyone :)

Nice that you offer this but I have doubts concerning its' efficiency.As I am suspecting that this could be a similar software to the ones that were downloaded in the past, with a scenario that unless you pay full price, for the activation of full functions [deleting rootkit, stopping viruses, blocking spyware, stopping spyware, ... ] and, if you don't accept this, then it has the same behavior as Malware that is impossible for a novice to delete from OS.
The "extended" trial is also not indefinite for your system, so it seems the user must eventually pay money for this product.
As "Terrawarra" comented, "no thanks !" for an insecure software, I must agree 100%.

A 1-year limitation is normal for AV software, so no complaints about that.
In the past Idoo has brought out cloned versions of encryption software, but these versions were not necessarily pirated. Sometimes vendors consent to other firms cloning their software, which then comes out under another name. It need not be bad at all. If so, the question is what software lies at the bottom of it.

I have never hear of this product which seems to be an entire security solution including a firewall... Questions are what AV is it running & what firewall? Where does it stand in AV tests? Does anyone know if its any good at all in detection or will it slow your system? Can it be used with another trusted AV.. or is it a stand alone security that should not be used with any other? Some can be.

Tylicia,
Looked for reviews but could not find any.
On product awards ZDNet Editors Pick is shown but on searching ZDNet site would find nothing regarding neither this program nor anything by Idoo.
Maybe others will have better luck in finding information.

Tylicia, a number of external resources exist to address the questions you raise, of which AVComparatives remains the best of the bunch (due to being independently tested itself):

http://www.av-comparatives.org/

I'd recommend it wholeheartedly -- and only wish that every computer user was as savvy as you in raising the kind of questions you've posed today: there are still far, far too many who entrust the security of themselves and their computers to anti-malware software whose performance they've never investigated nor even concern themselves with . . . until it's too late.

Tylicia,
"which seems to be an entire security solution including a firewall"

Bad news / good news... I would Not rely on it for a complete security solution since it does not send its roots deep into Windows like well known brands -- without that it's easier for malware &/or exploits to block, disable, &/or bypass security software. OTOH rather than needing a special software tool to remove it [like McAfee, Bitdefender etc.], deleting the program's folder gets rid of 90+% of the app's install.

"'Questions are what AV is it running & what firewall? Where does it stand in AV tests?..."

There's not loads of info on it online, but you can find a few, mostly user reviews with Google. The signature for the main exe file includes Hengyida Information Technology CO.,LTD. & eastrivergroup [at] yahoo.com

Tylicia, I did find a review from 2015 @ http://sharewareonsale.com/s/idoo-antispyware-pro-giveaway-coupon-sale. The verdict of this review is: ' I believe that a good antivirus should be as subtle as it is powerful. Antispyware Pro is none of this. I wouldn’t advise you to install it. Look somewhere else. '
