Thanks for the posts about Unlocker updates. I was looking for an update and have downloaded and installed Unlocker1.9.1-x64.exe.
I found no viruses, though it has an avoidable (i.e., you can deselect it) piece of adware in the install. Previously there had always been the Yabector or e-Bay viruses/trojans. Unlocker software was always very useful (though the viruses/trojans it contained were annoying and Microsoft Security Essentials would always object to them).
Last week I went looking for an update to Unlocker and had no joy. These are my notes (below) - they might be useful to users of "Unlocker" (a great little piece of software IMHO:
- I have the author's blog (Cedrick Collomb blog - http://ccollomb.free.fr/blog/ in my Google Reader, but there seem to be no posts after July 2, 2010. His posts were interesting and useful. However, now the blog seems to have gone, though I can access the stored abbreviated posts to the blog in my Google Reader.
- He also has a blog at emptyloop.com , but parts of that seem to be broken.
- Several other sites that he used or linked to for downloads seem to have have removed links to download his software, because they were infected with viruses (e.g., Yabector).
- I have had some correspondence over the last couple of years with Cedrick Collomb. I recently emailed him to see if he was OK, as his blogs seem to have been abandoned. He referred to the emptyloop blog and said "Blog is still down there, I kind of lost my database."
