#179, there there, you may be able to read but you don't seem to comprehend simple prejudice when you read it. A "Degree" of education does not convert personal or published opinion into truth, it is still just opinion. Degree's come in all sorts of flavors, how you use the Degree is down to the type of person you are. The user in question was trying to use their claimed Degree in computer Science to support a prejudicial claim against only one AV vendor when multiple vendors AV products reported hits on the rogue DLL used during the instalation of the program. The reason most claims of AV hits were with AVG on the rogue DLL is pretty simple, it was just that AVG/AVG Free is far more commonly used amongst commenters here than the other available AV engines. The big picture is all around us, just open your eyes and look around and try to comprehend it.

Strange enough to learn that Wondershare p.story downloaded from this site had a virus & my pc got infected with it. Who else to trust??? better watch out guys before downloading any thing from this site in future.

I first contacted Wondershare on the day of the Giveaway due to being unable to install. I have since asked several times (e-mail and just now by "chat" only to be cut off) to ask about purchasing the product. No replies received. They must be very busy as this can be the only reason for them not replying when a prospective customer is offering to pay for one of their products!

#172 @ #176 By you focussing on AVG you nullify your claim of expertese entirely. 56% of antivirus programs used in the VirusTotal macro-scanning service report problems with the DLL in question.
Not just AVG. The programmers in question are the tmd5.dll programmers for doing sloppy programming if all they are doing is a standard windows program install. I would go back to your University/College and check their accreditation if I were you. Your Degree seems suspect to me.

@#175: You obviously have no clue whatsoever about what has been written in CS Journals about AVG. I AM 100% correct on this one. Tou said that what I wrote was opinion because you're ignorant to all of the knowledge that I have and all of the knowledge I have about AVG in particular. As far as the rest of what you wrote I stopped reading because you're obviously speaking on a subject that you know nothing about.

@171- Just because you have a degree in Computer Science doens't make you RIGHT or WRONG. What you stated is YOUR opinion. Don't bash other people over the head because of their choices. Last I looked the internet is a democracy and there is no Emperor in charge. Same goes for the person who works in a computer shop.. just because you work in one doesn't make you right or wrong either. I know one guy who works in a computer shop.. he has a lot of knowledge.. doesn't mean I'll fall at his knees and hang onto his every word. Ditto for any big ego'ed Comp Sci degreed people... I make my own decisions thankyou.

Was Fun.. not.. trying to wade through the commnets full of Antivirus pontificating which had no place on this thread to even see anything about the software itself...

#44: I have a degree in computer science. I KNOW that AVG is garbage. I know that you are wrong. Anyone can work in a computer shop, it is not rocket science to slap hardware together and to install software but try engineering software of complex nature that CANNOT fail or people will die-that's what I do. I say AVG is absolute garbage and I KNOW that you're wrong.

For those of you who are afraid of the Trojan tmd5.dll Just install and delete the file from your Program files / wondershare / photo book folder. No malware detected after deletion. Is a simple fix.

I couldn't install on my Vista machine so downloaded trial version (30 days) from producer. Very good, best part is that you can copy to DVD (a must really for TV use). Worked well and better trasitions etc than Windows Photo Story 3 in my opinion. Managed to get free giveaway installed on my old XP (very slow indeed). However, noticed on the bottom of one of the pages that the producer offers to sell you Platinum for $24.95 (£15.36). Sounds a good deal and offer takes you straight to the payment website. Shall investigate if you can get complete download for Platinum or is it an upgrade? The Platinum works brill on my Vista Home.

Just to add, I also, have not received a reg code from Flex Gif Animator.

I wonder how many people were let down that day, too?

I also tried to install it and got the runtime error.

No good if we can't even install it, GAOTD, is it?

We can only respond with our negative feedback when this happens.

Please let us know what is happening in your info column on the right when many people have the same or similar problems, are you going to add it as a second giveaway one day to make up for it?

I really would like to try this and compare it to Microsofts version of 'Photo Story 3 for Windows'.

I'm just curious; Did anybody think that maybe the reason the program doesn't install well for a good portion of us is that Wondershare wanted us to go do the homepage posted above and... I dunno... actually BUY the program? :Þ

There might well be something to all the trojans comments. I downloaded this last time and like all Wondershare, it leaves traces forever, but this one was the worst when I removed it. Nice looking program but Windows has very similar programs.Thx anyhow GAOTD ..not this time.

Amendment to #139 - I got it to install ok by disabling AVG, ran Activation as Administrator, left GAOTD page up after activation, ran Setup as Administrator. Now it doesn't ask for Registration and watermark of Evaluation copy is gone, but sound only plays garbled for a couple of seconds. I agree with a previous poster - What good is it with sound? Sorry but I have to give it a thumbs down for not working as advertised (sound)and the difficulty of installation with no help from the publisher.

Kudos to Mike for his efforts, posts 121 & 130; his analysis of the installation package and the dll in question are as professional as it gets. I only wish he had come in sooner and saved us all from this unnecessary scare mongering.

ALL security programs of any kind can provide false positives and commit errors. Most good ones will flag any process that even remotely exhibits possible suspicious behavior. That's what you want them to do. That is not iron-clad evidence of malware. Note the long list of AV's that flagged it as a trojan yet few could agree what the heck they thought it was, all listing it as some baddie or another. Kaspersky recently had a major cow over HP Software Updater on my computer, which can run in the background to download and install updates. This ability made it believe that this was a serious backdoor trojan installer that needed to be deleted immediately.

The web is teeming with high quality, extremely active forums working on malware issues. Google anything you've ever heard of and see how many pages of links you get. The tmd5.dll was barely on the radar, not at any major site, and only regarding this program.

Wondershare has a 5 year track record at Site Advisor of being squeaky clean. No two AV's can agree on what the problem is. All the calm, professional voices have offered nothing but reassurance. If this program had come from Micosoft, I doubt this list of comments would be anywhere near this long. This has been rather like several citizens reporting a man with a drawn gun near their home, only to find they've reported a policeman.

Might I suggest that those who do not backup their systems before installing new software consider downloading Sandboxie to test out these programs if they don't trust the source. Worth learning about, and free.

I'm a relatively new "customer" of the GiveAway program. I think
it's good for all parties involved, when the products work. So far,
it's been a 50/50 crap shoot. I'd like to know if GiveAway...Com,
OR its contributors, do any follow-up and/or make constructive
suggestions, on this board, BEFORE the time runs out on those
products that have installation or registration problems.
ie: Flex GIF Animator - I've written to them twice - still no Reg Code!ie: Wondershare Photo Story - Cannot Import dll (see post # 144).

Perhaps it's just what the "Read Me" says.. "No free technical support".
PS: F-PROT Antivirus reports NO problems with the controversial DLL.Now, If I could just get it installed. I'd really like to try it.

Reply   |   Comment by Peter  –  15 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Ok too all the people having problems installing this one..

Double click the AVG icon and where there is a green check next to "resident shield" and "shell extension"... click on properties and then uncheck the box that says turn on (that means you are turning these features off in AVG)

Once these 2 are disabled in AVG you can run the setup and the program will install.

You DO NOT need to uninstall AVG or go into safe mode or any other nonesense.... just uncheck those features and then recheck them once the program is installed.

As for this program being a virus... all you guys are SUPER PARANOID!! The reason why the antivirus trips on this program is because the behavior resembles some known viruses. Now here is the thing to remember.... THE VIRUS programs were created to mimic the behavior of this program and that is why the antivirus trips... not the other way around. Viruses are bad... but tested programs on GOTD are good!

If it gave you this warning out of the blue when you were doing something like looking at a picture, or sending an email then you should worry but if you are KNOWINGLY installing a program then it is a false alarm. The larger (more advanced) antivirus programs recognize this as safe... but some of the others do not... yet.

People stop giving false advice when you know nothing about the topic. To merely restate what your antivirus reports to you without any understanding is like the blind leading the blind!

The program DOES NOT have a virus, it works ok, and it will intall with AVG.

Thanks GOTD.

In reply to #115 - no arguments there! Installing in Safe Mode is simply a workaround, so that people can get the GOTD offering up & running within the time limit. The onus rests with Wondershare to do an appropriate rewrite of their .DLL.

And I'll take this opportunity to AGAIN state that AVG Free is doing its job properly. For the doubters, upload tmd5.dll to http://virusscan.jotti.org/ and see how many other malware/virus scanners detect a problem with the file! If this makes AVG crap, then it also makes a heap of others crap too. I've still yet to see any REAL EVIDENCE from the "experts" on why AVG is supposedly no good... and I suspect none will be forthcoming!

I used this at the last giveaway and found it very easy to use. I'm not one to use the "help" menu unless I'm really stuck. I was able to create a really neat photostory within a few minutes without reading a thing. My family got such a kick out of the story I sent them.

#153 addendum

I did find that the FlashPlayer and FlashShare executables are not working, which may be the programs which used the offending files, unless they can only work when called up by PhotoStory instead of being run directly.

Reply   |   Comment by Bill  –  15 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

For those of you with AVG, I have found a safe way to install the software that seems to work.

After running Activate, I used Universal Extractor [http://legroom.net/software/uniextract] to extract all the files from Setup.exe. When I did, my AVG gave me a Trojan warning about TrojanhorseDownloader.Generic6.AFAG, and I asked it to remove it to the vault, which it did. Then I opened up the {app} folder that was created, and when I did, AVG spotted the Timd5.dll file, and I sent it to the virus vault. I then emptied the virus vault.

I then ran the program, and it seems to run fine, without the offending files. Just change the name of the outputted folder Setup to Wondershare PhotoStory, move that folder with all its subfolders to your Program Files directory and create a shortcut for the PhotoStory executable in the {app} directory to place in your Programs menu.

By the way, I checked, and the file is properly registered. Again, remember to run Activate.exe first.

I have no idea why the program had the offending files in the first place since the program doesn't seem to need them. Unfortunately, that fact does not add to Wondershare's credibility.

More GOTD garbage. If i have to hassle to get a program to install on a new machine running Vista Buisness x64, then it's not worth it. I also make note of the software manufacturer, and will not purchase software from those companies, since you cannot get refunds on software. Congradulations Wondershare, you have made my "Steer Clear" list.

I'm just curious, but has anyone downloaded the Photo Story Platinum trial to see if it test positive for a virus?

Also, how does this compare to Windows Movie Maker or WinDVD Creator?

No one has really discussed what this program does & what makes it different form other programs. I would like to see some pros & cons, please.

Thanks everybody & GOTD.

Although my Vista machine with McAfee detected the trojan downloader, when I downloaded and installed the program on this XP machine running NOD32, the program installed fine and opened fine. (And all my machines also have the AntiVir task manager and spybot search & destroy with its tea timer activated and there were no alerts from either of those programs either.

Still, there's good reason to be wary and alert when a trojan was detected by such a large number of Antivirus programs in the list posted above. (And its also easy to see logically, how someone wanting to spread a trojan, could see the potential in offering paid software for free. Both McAfee and NOD32 are well respected programs, the McAfee detected the trojan, the NOD32 didn't.

I agree that the dll in question should be modified or submitted to the antivirus databases for testing, I've seen instances before where something was picked up as being a trojan and was proven to be a false positive and the software owner had references to prove their program was clean, posted on their site with links to the AV sites. Proving that the software is clean would end all doubts. (Only Microsoft gets away with filling their products with spyware, etc! MS just doesn't call their spyware, etc, what it really is!)

I had just finished a complete virus scan prior to looking at GAOTD. I have Norton Antivirus 2008 online protection and antivirus program. I also have the An-Vir Program and Mamutu or A2squared Program which looks for malware and viruses, etc.

NO VIRUS/TROJAN DETECTED - (can't underline so I used caps to make this stand out - I'm not yelling at anyone)

I downloaded the Wondershare-photo-story-nr and scanned it - no viruses, etc. I extracted it, scanned again - no viruses, etc. Then I installed it. Again I ran Norton Antivirus and online protection on the installed file - again - no viruses, etc., found. Nothing was picked up by the An-Vir Program or Mamutu which are both working as well and have picked up malware/viruses recently.

I agree with Bubby that this program probably causes some virus checkers to ring alarm bells because of the individual programs sensitivity and the way this dll is written. I'm not an expert but just thought I would pass this info on and let you be the judge of whether you think it's relevant. Hope this helps.

My previous post about PrevX report on TM5.LL WAS DELETED. WHY? I hope you won't delete this. For good measure I included VirusTotal's report. 56.25% of its virus scanners found TM5.DLL a virus including McAfee. Unless you have a good explanation why PrevX and Virus Total ere wrong, DON'T DELETE THIS.

This software did not work for me, it installed fine but attempting to create an album resulted in a pop-up saying class not registered, a few seconds later an empty album with the name I had input appeared but nothing else would happen. Could not pictures or effects or even open the album. I uninstalled. Thanks anyway, I appreciate the site. And some of the software I have gotten is wonderful.

I'm sure it's not GOTDs fault, at all, but for Wondershare to give this away even free to anyone seems similar to giving Goodwill Thrift Stores a chair with a leg missing! Why???

I sure hope GOTD didn't have to pay a penny for it, but I bet they did!
It's nice that some peeps were helpful on how to install it, & about all the AV stuff, but why should we have to go through any of this at all? Makes 0 sense to me.
Thank you GOTD, & I feel bad for you, GOTD, if Wondershare made you pay anything for it.

I read the readme file and activated it then disabled resident shield for AVG. I ran setup as administrator in Vista and all went well until I ran the program and it wants a registration number. I ran the program anyway and all works fine even the music from one of my own files BUT I get EVALUATION COPY on my finished project! What am I doing or not doing wrong??

#64, and anyone else that did not/ cannot read the "readme" file, here is the copy/paste.


Unzip the package you`ve downloaded and run the activation program
Activate.exe which is included in the package, then run Setup.exe to
install the software." .......

It is always a good idea to open the readme file first, as the instructions suggest.

I red the comment until 133.
No many positive about the product.
You need to desinstall your virus scanner.
You need to install as administrator.
The music does not work.
The dll gives error messages with AVG and McAfee.
It is the second attempt as giving away.
Etc etc etc.
No for me. Try it to send the software back and put it in trash it away. The concept likes fine. Easy flash interface. The result seems
a program that does not work.
I pass without trying. My system works and I have only a 20 GByte HD.

It's not about AVG. (I do not use it.) It's about a harmful softare. Just stop telling how AVG bad is...

I'm also getting a runtime error when I install. Running Windows XP. I also shut down my av and spyware programs before installing.

Well, my initial enthusiasm has been dampened. Added an mp3 to the storyline and you hear it garbly-blipped during the first few seconds, then silence the rest of the show. And I can't save my show as a WMV or similar? So much for my Mom, who doesn't own a computer, being able to see pics of her grandchild.

Afraid I'd take back my thumbs up if I could. A shame b/c the features that do work are fantastic.

IF you can't install...

Without going anywhere near the debate of which av program is best / worse, I've never seen one that couldn't be turned off, & I've rarely seen any software where they didn't recommend turning it off during installation. If you're worried about exposing yourself on-line, run Activate.exe, *then* unplug your network or modem cable or turn off the modem (many cable modems have a suspend button/switch) -> turn off or pause (CA calls it snooze) your AV software monitoring, & run the setup program. Once you verify it works, turn your AV software monitoring back on, and if you disconnected, reconnect your network cable or modem cable or whatever.

In XP you can *try* just right clicking on your network connection to disable it - In Vista you have to disable the network adaptor in Device Mgr... IF it works it's the same thing as unplugging your network cable etc., but depending on what else you have installed it may be a hassle disabling your network via Windows - if other software maintains a constant connection it may not like it & tell you so real quick.

I'm not having any problems running the program. I use avast and it doesn't report the file as harmful. I was suggesting that to developers so those using "Photo story" can use it without any modifications to their antivirus(disabling, excluding etc..) and without worrying about getting infected. Still, Thanks for the suggestion.
