"good product, bad company"
seems to be one of the best at what it does. has some useful tools that exceed glary and others (ex. optimization and security holes scanner).
company was caught hacking malwarebytes and illegally using their definitions. this indicates this company is not trust worthy. it sets itself up in start menu (very aggressively) and is constantly accessing the internet and using up bandwidth. why it needs to be on the internet so often is beyond me (it indicates its doing more than checking for updates - being unscrupulous, i wonder if its uploading personal data like surfing habits to sell off to advertising companies (?)).
their antivirus is useless. and optimization, which i like, can be found elsewhere (winaso). registry cleaner can be a little too aggressive but is good for experienced users.
my father in law installed it (he's compute illiterate) and it set itself up to scan this computer automatically (quickscan). it did this in background and he was unaware of it. he called me to trouble shoot why his computer suddenly became sooooo slow. had to turn off scheduled scanning, and remove from startup with winpatrol.
if you use it, block it with firewall to save bandwidth (even then, it will still use some processor to try and go online).note: when i state that i had to remove autostart with winpatrol it wasn't because i didn't know how to do it from within iobit. the problem was iobit would put itself back into the startup after i removed it (ex. a week later it would be back). i needed something to monitor the removal and to make sure it stayed out.
