    Great software. The dev is an unfriendly knob though.

    @Peeps. Read what @Hilbert says.. (3 posts below).
    Then look at the list of rejections by NOD another 2 posts below that.
    >>> Look at the names of the .exe files In the list.
    Files with those type of name (view, sniff, pass) are gonna raise Alarms.
    Not by their names lol ... Because they are Intrusive/Invasive.

    The code in those files WILL be seen as malicious by any Anti-Virus.
    If your A/v doesn't trigger, I would Seriously think about an A/v change.

    Open candy & toolbars are a Damn nuisance, But can be opted out of during
    Install. "OR" Learn "how to" Unpack Installers if you want better Safety.

    The Tools in the Nir package are Very, very good. & noobs can learn lots by Trying/Using them. The launcher is useful for categorization. Personally I don't use it. ALL apps in this package are Safe to use.
    The only Crap in there is OCSetupHlp.dll (open candy).

    My list (below) was posted as a reference for Peeps/Members to check against.
    I shred the files I listed (& others) because I don't need them.... Keep Safe.

    As usual, NirLauncher is first class software. Nir Sofer's programming is consistently good and uniform. Whenever I reinstall my machine NirLauncher is amongst the very first software to be installed.


    @ some guy:

    I read your link with supposed list of NirLauncher viruses. Now you should (a) read the info about false positives on the NirSoft site, (b) also read my earlier review of NirLauncher 1.17.03 dated Oct 30, 2013 (hereunder), and finally my review of Cain & Abel 4.9.47 dated Nov 26, 2013 here:


    By definition, this type of software (from any vendor) will attract antivirus software because its signatures are similar to crudware. They have to be otherwise the software wouldn't work (i.e.: get your passwords back etc.)
