I downloaded Actual Spy from http://www.actualspy.com/download.html which is detected by CIS as a malware (PUA). I started to install and CPM didn’t give me any notification about malware installation.
in previous versions this feature also didn’t work
Your Operating System (and whether it’s 32bit/64bit); windows 7 pro 32
Security Software Installed; cis 5.5
How you produced the problem; tried to uninstall paint.net it was a monitored application and was installed when 1.2 was installed i think and when the built in installer finished the leftovers were displayed but they were files from adobe acrobat not paint.net
How you tried to resolve the problem; n/a
Screen-shots with the error (if any); appended
Post Memory Dumps on crash if you encounter any; n/a
All log files of CPM, if you had logs enabled; attached
Any other Additional Information; n/a
EDIT: i checked the partial uninstall to see what other files are being deleted and a message popped up saying adobe reader is a Dependant application. this message did not pop up when i uninstalled yesterday. this is still a bug because they are not dependant
Was, by any chance, adobe acrobat reader updated? I think the flow might have been like this: Adobe Reader came with paint.net in a bundle installer (or they were just caught together by CPM ), after this, adobe reader updated itself leaving the old version partially uninstalled and hidden ( a partially uninstalled entry isn’t shown in the list until all the dependent applications are all partially uninstalled ). If this is the case, the update issue has been fixed in the current CPM beta so it shouldn’t appear again.
The partially uninstalled dependent applications issue will be fixed in the next release.
