I disapprove vehemently

Post by gardenweeder » Mon Oct 21, 2013 2:14 pm

Your program came highly recommended from a source that tested and examined your installer
and assured us it was safe and free of malware and bundling.

Then just 3 days after the testing and publishing that recommendation, it was discovered that NOW your installer
includes TWO pieces of malware and a hijacker. TOTALLY deceitful and UNACCEPTABLE.

The lucky ones are those who installed your program BEFORE your greed became more imporant than
your integrity. And caution them against upgrading and addons.

You've got a nice little program and I'm sure it took lots of thought and hardwork into creating it
and supporting your loyal users. You have betrayed their trust through your apparently new
association with deceptive miscreants. Anyone with good anti-malware software now has your program
flagged. Is that what you want? Or would you rather restore your reputation before any more time
passed and it's too late?
You've lost LOTS of new customers because the pubic recommendation has also been publicly
rescinded.

Hey, my name is Pavel, I’m the author if YoWindow.
Let me explain why I’m bad and greedy and scumbag as some people called me in emails.

Me and my friend spent 7 years working on YoWindow non stop
We love the project and want to make it better.
There are no ads inside because we care about the users.

Anyway thanks for making YoWindow pick of the week.

When you install the app you are prompted to install some other software.
This is the second source of money we need to work full time on the project.
This software is picked semi randomly by a plugin called Open Candy.
We have been trusting Open Candy for a long time.
As far as I knew there was no malware distributed with OC.
I will report this toolbar is malware to Open Candy.

The disgusting emails were ver sad experience, guys

Hello Pasha,

when this situation is resolved, it might be a good idea to think about other ways to earn money. You can not be shure that it will be the last time to run into such an "unpleasant" situation.
I personally hate these unwanted programs and there is no reasonably be expected to pay attention while installing a payed software!
And there is not any an experienced user, which YoWindow installed.

We here in our forum and in the forums talking about "Open Candy" are less than one per thousand of the normal user! All other people didn't understand this ... ask your neighbors :)
Sorry, but this is my opinion.

Werner

Those that continue to shout & berate others, are often tuned out by those they are shouting at & berating.
On the flip side, those same people that will tune out a shout, will often strain themselves to hear a whisper.
Instead of berating the owners/creators of YO WINDOW, maybe we should all calm down & ASK about this problem/that problem, before we explode onto someone. More often than not, it is by mistake/accident that problems occur....seldom is it by malicious acts, and if it is, calmly bring it to the attention of the owner/creator & let him/her handle it. Chewing on their backside & getting verbally vicious, will not solve anything, nor does it serve anyone.

My thoughts on YO WINDOW:
I first learned of this program a few years ago, and was honored y a free trial of the whole package. I fell in love with the program & have never had any issues with it....issues with my computer or ISP maybe, but never the program.
Today(06/APRIL/2014) I signed up for the premium package for I believe that there is no finer tool for weather forecasting for the average joe...nor a cheaper one either.

Mr.Pavel, I commend you on the creation of such a great program. I know I will enjoy it for many years to come. G'Day Sir. :Yahoo!: :Yahoo!: :Yahoo!: :Yahoo!:
