I ran the install exe - which I downloaded directly from your server @ PDForge. I am currently using WebRoot for A/V & it reported a virus.
I’ve been to the support page about this & ran the check you suggest @ VirusTotal.com. 4 of the scans show viruses:
I unfortunately did not save what WebRoot found.
I know & trust ESET & Trend-Micro & am reasonably comfortable with WebRoot.
I have code in one of my systems that utilizes PDFCreator & have invested a lot of time in developing it - but am VERY hesitant to try installing your program on my client’s system with these potential issues.
ETA: I chose PDFCreator only during the install (no PDFArchitect) & did not install the toolbar (which I wish you hadn’t put in there).
So - 34 views, but no replies?
Maybe I came across wrong? If so, I apologize. I am in a quandary - as I’m just not comfortable deploying something at a customer’s when the product’s own site sends me to a page that tells me the exe may be infected.
Anyone have any ideas?
Hi Robin -
Many thanks. I finally found the WebRoot log - they hide it well. WebRoot threw a real fit during my install (quarantine, remove, etc.) on DefaultTabSetup.exe.
In searching on the web, I found various posts about it having crashed IE & FireFox - which was my experience: FF did crash & when I rebooted it, I had lost all my pinned tabs. That, of course makes one wonder what else might have happened.
Since all I need is PDFCreator itself, is there any way I can do the install without having this exe installed? As I mentioned above, I did not install PDFArchitect or any toolbars - as I watch pretty carefully for those. PDFCreator seems to work just fine after DefaultTabSetup.exe was removed.
I believe I removed all! I could’ve missed one - but I see no new toolbars in FF or IE.
I’m in the US - Vermont if that makes a difference.
