There are a lot of red flags about that company. They are definitely doing shady things. There is a link to their uninstall kb.flexerasoftware.com/.../viewContent.do here.
I noticed several things: The app is hidden from removing. The icon shortcut disappears from your programs list. All the app ever did was receive notifications that were clearly spamming.
I came here after observing a high amount of traffic (both ways) to this piece of software. Must have been installed along with some other software (non-Dell) PaperPort? to allow for updates but was appearing way too active for my liking.
Just ran the uninstaller and will let you know how that turns out.
Hi and thanks for your reply!
But as I stated (a bit unclearly) in my opening post, I've already tried what you suggested and it didnt help. For some reason the uninstaller wont uninstall the program, even if it says everything went ok.
For a temporary solution I have renamed the flexnet software folder to prevent it to run in system startup. It seems to work and gives me no error messages.
" I've already tried what you suggested and it didnt help. For some reason the uninstaller wont uninstall the program, even if it says everything went ok."
Exactly my experience.
1. Why is this PROGRAM in the ProgramData folder of all places?
(I believe it's because they don't want you to be able to find it. This is a hidden folder and the program does not show up in Revo Uninstaller. It is also not caught by Avast or Malwarebytes.)
2. Why would a company that puts malware on your system provide a means of removing it? (Highly implausible)
