I've decided to create a thread about this thing that has been bugging me for a long time. Every time I scan my system with MBAM, it flags almost all essential system files of all DVDVideoSoft apps I have installed (that I downloaded straight from their own site, no third party web hosting mirror service). I've used their software for years, and side from some of the dumb "free offers" you naturally have to avoid, it's very good software. It has never caused me any infections or harm, but it's things like this that bug me, especially knowing what InstallCore is normally capable of doing.
Nothing weird has been going on, ever. Of all the symptoms I read from people infected with FusionCore/InstallCore, none fit my situation.
My only concern is the fact that MBAM flags almost all of DVDVideoSoft's system files (including stuff like the uninstall.exe) as a PUP.
If I'm to trust MBAM, I'd be better off uninstalling the apps, then cleaning up any mess left behind, because from what I can tell, if I let MBAM remove all the flagged files, all of DVDVideoSoft's apps will break and will become impossible to uninstall normally.
So to anyone who views this thread, what's your take on this? I kinda need their software, it's extremely useful. I avoid any and all "free offers", and otherwise clean up their mess if I do, but at the same time I can't help but want to trust MBAM, despite it possibly being a false positive. I need confirmation!
