Has anyone heard if URSoftWare's product UrUninstaller 2011 contains malware.

Moved to more appropriate section.

I'm not familiar with that app but a Google search did not turn up any connections with malware. However, I the only download locations showing in the Google results are file sharing sites, which are totally untrustworthy.

Who is the vendor - what is the company name? I don't see any Google results for Download.com, or other known download sites.

Or is the name of the app Your Uninstaller? See that on Download.com, softpedia, etc.

Hi Suzi and thanks for the reply.
The programme maker is UrSoftware.www.ursoftware.com
The programme is YourUninstaller
They also make a programme named StartUpFaster.
I have been using both without difficulty (as best I know) for about 6 years.
They have developed an upgrade to YourUninstaller, YourUninstaller 2011 but there are comments online to suggest that it contains malware and is being flaged by such as Avira.
There also seems to be a problem with their support as a question I asked back in August, and many times since remains unanswered.
This is unusual as they were always reasonably quick to respomnd to requests for support.
I am concerned that they may have "sold out" as Aluria did in the past.
Any help/advice would be appreciated

I looked at the listing at Download.com and none of the user reviews mention any problems with it.

Maybe they are bundling it with a toolbar or other adware? I'm not going to download it to find out though. Smile

I would say if you are in doubt, don't upgrade to the new version. You could continue to use the version you aleady have if it works for you.

Again my thanks for all your help. I will do as you suggest and stick with the version I have.

I just installed it and it appears to be clean. The detection by Avira is probably an error.

Hi,
Thanks for the information. Unfortunately UrSoft have not bothered responding to my many requests for support since August last so I will not avail of their products in the future. Sad really as I really liked both Your Uninstaller and StartUpFaster. However all programmes, even good ones are only as good as the technical and customer offered. In this UrSoft have proven to be dismal.
