1. The three IObit packages that I use are mentioned above. They do not include any third-party programs. Two of those three did offer to install some IObit products (only) such as IObit Uninstaller. The third didn't give the opportunity to opt-out, but the other product was easily and independently uninstalled. Hard to blame a vendor for promoting their own products. Seems more legitimate to me than the ubiquitous Chrome (set as default browser!) and Google Toolbar opt-in-by-default installations that seem to be bundled into EVERYTHING of late, where the vendor likely gets a per-instance commission. So briefly, to my awareness, the IObit "bundling" accusation mentioned above is baloney in my understanding of and experience with such.
2. It's hard to imagine someone taking it upon themself to publish and promote for public use a self-help program purporting to rid a computer of unknown and unwanted infestations and hide inside it something that sabotages a recognized vendor's programs (in a half-baked fashion at that). Can you name one other such program in the entire sector that (surreptiously or otherwise) attacks (or even flags) IObit products? Also, in searching just now, notice other users questionning in your forum what exactly these four programs do, how they are complementary and/or overlap, about JRT changes being presented for opt-in before being made (like everyone else does), and a (same notion) reporting-only option.
3. There's explicit mention above of theft (or similar) from Malwarebytes. If Malwarebytes doesn't take issue with it, then what pray tell are you doing? Am not a lawyer, but such public accusations sound defamatory and libelous, and the strident tone suggests a deep nerve was hit. Sorry if the case - I hear the sizzle, but where's the beef? C'mon. Would imagine that Malwarebytes would likely be concerned if/when they discover that someone they are now apparently sponsoring on their site is doing 1-3 above in a very visible way. Suggest asking someone in a responsible at Malwarebytes for an opinion.
4. Attempted to share something very useful that I came across, namely Windows Repair. It seems to pretty comprehensively and effectively address damage done by malware etc. I don't believe Bleeping Computer prescribed protocol of RKill, AdwCleaner, JRT, and ComboFix does much if anything in this respect - at least it didn't help me with my registry issue mentioned above. Sure would have been nice to have it (and other programs you were already aware of) mentioned for reference on Bleeping Computer. Don't see any acknowledgement of it in any of the replies above.
Will take your assertion that you all are trying to help the user community at face value, and thank you for your efforts. The aspects mentioned above appear to this man-in-the-street to be inconsistent with that mission.
