About 1400 hrs associated with snow fall.
Heavy rain now so signal down. Also seems to have been a delay in Metop data.

Re: Smart defrag 2.7 - BEWARE!

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

David, N.B., my warnings did not refer to defrag 2.7 itself but to the blind passenger
it brought with it during the installation. Maybe there was a note in ultra-small print
on the bottom side of the monitor, but no explicit mentioning of any additional
program, btw. produced by the same people who make defrag, IOBit.

I got it from IOBit's own side.

Enough words of warning, I guess.

Cheers,
U.
====================================

Ah, it wasn't clear that the warnings applied to an ancillary program. I only installed the Smart Defrag.

Cheers,
David

I only found a few registry entries - for the program and the
device driver it uses, but I didn't spend a lot of time looking.

The program I used was: defragsetup.2.7.0.1163.exe (but I may
have renamed it with the version number) and its MD5 signature was:
7B05ACE2D273C159499055064C29B9BD

Happy you! A friend of mine whom I could not alert in time ran into the same trap.
Maybe it's the source where you get if from, and if it updates automagicully or...
Anyway, be careful!

With the help of ccleaner, I could purge the last remainders in the registry. Did I
mention the nasty program left more than 1.600 registry entries behind?
Unbelievable.

Yes, I would suggest getting it from the source, although that does redirect to:

Ahh well, It was just one click more - and a visit to EOP's home page is always
useful. I had looked in December if any renewal was due and saw the message that
the time window was not yet open to act. Now, these days, I am so busy I am sure I
would have forgotten - so, thanks, John, for the reminder, it is really prepared by
Eumetsat in a perfect way, the renewal took me less than a minute. If I compare
that to a trip to our local townhall do practice bureaucracy in theory and metatheory,
ah well.

Thanks again, John,

Software updates from SatSignal ....

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

Folks,

A number of my programs have been updated recently and you will find the details here:

http://www.satsignal.eu/software/updates.html

- BUFR Viewer 1.1.14
- GeoSatSignal 7.3.8
- GRIB Viewer 2.3.16
- Metop Manager 2.0.8
- MODIS L1 Viewer 3.0.6
- NOAA HDF Viewer 1.0.2

They are a mixture of some long-outstanding beta versions which have been brought up to "release" level, and some programs for the new MSG-3 and Metop-B data which can now be confirmed as working with production data. If anyone is still missing Meteosat data from Europe/Africa or want to run with the Metop-B data, you may find the MSG-2 to MSG-3 transition instructions and Metop Manager instructions here useful:

http://www.satsignal.eu/software/faq.htm#msg2-to-msg3
http://www.satsignal.eu/software/metop_manager.htm#metop-b

Any responses to the SatSignal Yahoo group, please:

Re: Smart defrag 2.7 - BEWARE!

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

Just a word of caution if you don't like the concept of having your computer taken
over by an over-enthusiastic ((C) David T.) piece of software:

When I upgraded from IObit's smartdefrag 2.5 to 2.7 tonight on one computer, I
discovered several undesired changes: New "monitoring" windows, two dozen new
intervening control bars that try to protect me from everything from headache to
black feet - except for keeping unwanted protection software away.

Uninstalling it was nearly impossible first. The entries in the program folder were
protected like the gold in Fort Knox (that was before the Euro crisis).

I finally was able to uninstall it with the IObit uninstaller that was also suddenly
there, I hope it did what it says. It uninstalled the programs, although I just see that
the icons are still on the desktop...

Smart defrag got some positive echo here some time ago, and it looks as if it still
earns positive judgment. But: To beware of that unwanted (and unannounced)
intrusion, avoid Smartdefrag 2.7!

Cheers,
U.
==========================================

Ulrich,

I didn't have the same experience here. I'm running Smart Defrag 2.7 on at least one PC (a Windows-8/32 system, PC Bergen), and it seems to be behaving in exactly the same was as previous versions. It looks as if that PC went from Smart Defrag 2.5, through 2.6 to 2.7. A Win-7/64 PC (Alta) is still running 2.0, apparently without any problem.

What I have noticed, though, is that the program appears to stop working after a period of time on Windows-8, but I haven't seen the "take over the PC" which you have seen.

Cheers,
David

Thanks for the heads up on that. I have used that product in the past successfully.
On my Win 7 64 bit, I find that weekly scheduled defrag with the windows product works very satisfactorily.
