Very suspicious program

At first I was very interested in WinMend File Copy
Pale Moon browser blocked access to the download, but I opted to at least download "File Copy"
The VirusTotal detection ratio 28/70 ... has put me off. Very OFF.
A lot of the AVs are the usual unreliable detectors of ... false positives ... and how many are all detecting the same "risk" ? Adware ? Trojans ? Virus' ?
Simple adware, IF (and a big IF) can be avoided; occasionally.
Searches of each "Result" names can take hours and from decades of experience can prove to be fruitless, and prove nothing.

Why developers need to be dishonest about "sneak-ware" is beyond me, because they only shoot themselves in the foot.
At this point in time WinMend is best avoided

My rating 0/5 stars

Sources:

  1. VirusTotal scan, 18-Dec-2018
  2. Free Bitdefender scan : confirmed " a risk"
  3. Super AntiSpyware : unreliable, a contradiction comparing VTotal scan with a local SAS scan
  4. AltsTo.net rating : 27th out of potential 28 ... is pathetic
  5. Softpedia user ratings :
  • 4/5 (Madalina Boboc) softpedia reviewer ...
  • 3.2/5.0 (34 users) ... mediocre by 34 users ... (and we don't know all users reasons)
