We reviewed the service back in 2009 for the first time and the rocky pass in the years that followed. The creators wanted to shut down the service back in 2010 but LastPass, makers of the password manager, stepped in and acquired Xmarks in the same year.
MBAM seems to detect these "PUPs" before them being installed, and then quarantines them.-IainB (December 20, 2014, 04:11 PM)
If a developer wants to "bundle" his apps with other tools that are "OPT-IN", so that they will not install by default by a distracted user,-mouser (December 21, 2014, 03:44 AM)
...I didn't appreciate how complicated it was to migrate a Gmail account to another Gmail account until I had to change my email address ...I'm curious - why did you "have to" change your email address?-daddydave (December 12, 2013, 12:39 PM)
(I don't see why one would ever have to abandon an email address, unless it wasn't your personal one in the first place - e.g., under a corporate email domain name.)-IainB (December 12, 2013, 02:40 PM)
I used to use MyMobiler for Windows Mobile to "remote" into my Dell Axim, and it was awesome and I registered it (it was freeware then with a paid version). I see there is an Android version of it now. Does it look like it might meet your needs?-daddydave (September 29, 2012, 09:15 PM)
I try to stick with S/E because I can then use the nice unbloated MyPhoneExplorer-f0dder (February 22, 2011, 01:08 PM)
I use that with my Android phone just fine, so that opens a load more phone choices for you in future.-Eóin (February 22, 2011, 02:55 PM)
Malware alert: avoid like a sharp stick.
To use this app, you will need to install the desktop client. It also installs at least two unwanted programs: snap.do and InfoAtoms. After having spent the day cleaning this up, I re-downloaded the Windows client to run the setup again twice to make sure there was not a custom install option where I might have avoided it. There definitely is not a custom install option, but when the Terms of Service comes up, you are actually seeing the InfoAtoms TOS. I believe most users will expect MyPhoneExplorer's own TOS to come up at that point, and just click Agree. If you click Cancel, you will get another TOS prompt for TranslateGenius. If you cancel that one, the install continues. So possibly you might be able to install MyPhoneExplorer for Windows without installing "potentially unwanted programs," but this was enough to keep me from trusting the software.
InfoAtoms puts ads everywhere, even Wikipedia and YouTube. If I had not been giving AdBlock Plus, a break, I might not have seen it. snap.do hijacks the browser's home page and default search. TranslateGenius, to my knowledge, did not get installed, and I have no opinion of it.
