I was wondering if some of you might have experience with Multi Reminders reminder software? Does it contain malware, adware, virus, or cause problems?

 

You can read the further details if you like.

 

I've been using Multi Reminders reminder software for perhaps 5 years with no known probems. 3 or 4 different AV software I've had on my computer haven't come up with a problem for it. Malwarebytes thought it was OK. A few times when I've had adware on my computer, the software that helper people have had me run didn't say it was bad either.

 

But, a couple of times when I've tryed to download a newer version, then my AV say's it's bad. Once when using gmail to email the Multi Reminders program to my sister, gmail said bad. (Probably the original .exe file I had downloaded.)

 

A couple of times when I've had problems with my AV, such as recently with Bitdeferder, the support people have had me disable the Mult Reminders program.

 

I am finishing up with Bitdefernder on the problem I was having, and have asked if I can use Mult Reminder again, but thought I would see what you folks thought.

 

Thanks,

Harry

Thanks quietman7,

 

I'm not too sure we have the same program. The executable for Multi Reminders is reminders.exe.

 

But, I've now used the same web site you showed to check the executable and it shows 1/57. I guess that's not bad. Thanks quietman7 for your input.

 

If anyone else has info on Multi Reminders, please let me know. I have a bad memory and depend on this simple program. I want to be able to contunue using it.

 

Harry

reminds.exe was the name of the download file from both of these sites.
http://www.theabsolute.net/sware/reminder.html
http://multi-reminders.software.informer.com/

The file size is different so those are most likely different versions

I did find a reminder.exe, but not a reminders.exe

VirusTotal results of Reminder.exe: 0/56

Thanks for the research Mr. 7. That's the same program I have. Don't know why the slightly different executable.

 

The scan results you show are also good.

 

I asked Bitdefender if I could use the program if I found a way to delay its startup. Still waiting for an answer.
