Re: Q-Installer?

 

I have not had any of this but I could see where it would be a good idea and also why not.

I have an old asus h series board.

It does come with a lot of extra software, but I only load the drivers.

However I have noticed this with some of my mice, logitech, microsoft, etc and cameras and other hardware like my printers and the like.

You can turn some of this off but I have never had a bad experience with it and in fact like that my hardware is loading its own drivers rather than letting windows use generic drivers.

I do think there should be more control of this stuff though as malware users could write straight to the bios though a lot of this stuff can be secured against.

Its another thing to check when setting up for the first time though.

I have recently setup an old hp server for one of my uncles which was set to start and shut down at certain times as well as load a load of extras as it was set for a business.

When it was sold x lease no one thought to clear the bios and eufi so I needed a friend who I had about to fix that but its ok now.

So obviously I will have to be carefull and get people to go through eufi every time I set things up.

I don't want extra junk being installed, I want control of what is loaded.

Now if there is a way to control within the os what is loaded, and how its kept updated maybe I'd be happy with that.

1 of these days if I ever get a bit of spare change, I'm gonna get a
test computer, just for malware analysis as well as for testing the
functionality or lack thereof for programs like this 1. Why is it that
spare change seems so hard to come by? It really is true that money

If you need an accessible uninstaller go to google and look for "BCU" It can even do quiet uninstallers which is nice.

Re: accessible uninstaller that works with NVDA

Actually I have encountered some sites especially on some routers that have no audio captcha.one of the sites I encountered is tiny.cc, I think I got that right. You cannot create an account as there is no audio captcha or other way to solve the thing. I’ve  written to these folks many times but I guess they don’t want my money.

Jackie,

Think about what Webroot actually is and it's no surprise that a Captcha is used by the uninstaller.  It's just another way to prevent "bot uninstallation" without human intervention.  It's a security measure to keep a security program from being nefariously uninstalled by automated means.

Also, so you can hate me, I am so over complaints about modern Captchas, almost all of which do offer an accessible alternative to their solution.  They were horrible accessibility roadblocks, and for those rare sites or products still using "Early Generation" captchas, they still are.  But I have solved captchas, eyes closed, with audio challenges on more than one occasion, and that's the most common alternative.

Captchas of most modern sorts should be accessible.  They will pose challenges for those who are deaf-blind or who have significant hearing impairment if it cannot be addressed via hearing aids, but there are limits to anything that is intended to force human intervention of some sort.

Re: accessible uninstaller that works with NVDA

Well, perhaps you're correct. However, my experience w/these uninstall
captchas has never been good, and this quote is from their website
which makes me believe that trend persists.
" Require the completion of a CAPTCHA when changing critical features
Opens a CAPTCHA dialog that requires you to read distorted text on the
screen and enter the text in a field before performing any critical
actions. These actions include changing shields, importing
configuration settings, uninstalling the program, and shutting down
the agent."
Taken from https://answers.webroot.com/Webroot/ukp.aspx?pid=17&ruleid=993#null

BTW, I do use captcha protection on websites I own or have developed,
so I don't think I really fall into the camp of being 1 of those who
blindly (ahem) hate captchas per se. This 1, however, just sounds like
trouble to me in all caps. :).

Re: accessible uninstaller that works with NVDA

The problem w/this particular program, all, is that the uninstaller
has a frickin captcha. Aint that special!

This tool is designed to nuke Webroot, but, if it doesn't work, please
be advised, Betina, that Brian Vogel, our moderator, is sighted. He
has a business helping w/problems like this and many others.
Yes--he'll charge something--& I don't know what his rates are, what I
do know is that he will not overcharge you. I'm pretty certain it will
be a simple job using NVDA remote to control your machine and remove
the bloatware. He is well familiar w/the procedures for removing such
software, so if connections cooperate, I can't see it taking too long.

I once had a problem I was gonna ask him to help me with.
Unfortunately, he was on vaycay, and I figured it out by time he
returned, but,, should the need ever arise again, I would ask him
unhesitatingly to help me. & no--I have no affiliation w/him, except
for just being a friend of his. But please understand I don't make
recommendations of this sort lightly.

It actually might be something to try before using the tool, because
the tool is rather a method of last resort. Having thus said, Mcafee
has such a tool, and I was able to use it to uninstall their software
just fine. But they were not so stupid as to have a captcha. I am a
bit concerned that if the uninstallation is botched, your computer
won't boot into normal mode, and this really creates problems for us
if we're not set up to boot into safe mode beforehand. So that's why
I'm saying, tool or no tool, you might wish to request Mr. Vogel's
help privately.

If you decide to go w/the tool, then I would suggest that you set your
computer up to boot into safe mode (with networking support)
beforehand.

The program is called web route security suite, which was included with the protection plan of my computer I bought three years ago. I did not purchase it again because it was too expensive, however, it constantly gives me alerts about how it needs to be updated, which is why I want it uninstalled. When I try to uninstall it, it gives me an edit box, which I am not able to type because it is not accessible.

 Hi Betina,

Try the following to uninstall your problem program.

1.  Open the run dialogue with windows key + r.
2.  type the following:
shell:appsfolder
and press enter.

This will open an old style programs and features type interface familiar to users of Windows 7 and earlier.
It is in a Windows explorer Window.
3.  use up/down arrow keys or first letter navigation to highlight the name of the problem program.
4.  use the context menu windows context key or shift + F10) to bring up options for the program.
5.  If this is not a program native to Windows, one of them should be uninstall.
6.  Press enter on the uninstall item and follow the prompts.

see if this enabled you to uninstall the program.

I use to run that a long time ago when it actually worked. I gave it up when it wouldn't quit calling jaws a virus, and then came the advertisements.

Re: accessible uninstaller that works with NVDA

Gene
 

that’s an illustration of the importance of giving details at the outset such as the program and the specifics of the problem.  I often see people ask how to do something without giving specifics which change the nature of the discussion once known.  It may be that the program will require sighted assistance to uninstall.  Antimalware programs make themselves difficult to uninstall because malware often tries to remove them.
 
Also, when it comes to antivirus programs, what I said about not worrying about uninstalling programs doesn’t apply.  antivirus programs shouldn’t be allowed to accumulate on machines.
