Panda anti-virus is flagging this software as having a virus.Apr 21, 2017 at 4:32 am #7711155
So, what does this do that Belarc doesn’t?Apr 21, 2017 at 5:22 am #7711744
Black Bird System Info Pro does everything it promises. It’s useful. However its installation process leaves a lot to be desired. Installation leaves a shortcut to the program on the desktop without asking and creates a Start Menu folder containing nothing but an uninstall link. Windows 10 doesn’t recognise this as a program, obviously, so the folder is not visible in Start Menu. If the desktop shortcut is dragged into the folder in Start Menu via File Explorer, then the folder becomes visible. This is basically very amateurish. The developers need to sort it out.Apr 21, 2017 at 11:55 am #7715089
Hi everybody! :-)
I scanned the setup.exe of this program and its installation folder with windows 10 defender, superantispyware free, Malwarebytes antimalware 2, emsisoft emergency kit, gridinsoft antimalware: no problems.
I sent the setup.exe to virustotal, metadefender, jotti: no problems.
Virscan wasn’t available…
This is a good alternative to windows device manager, piriform speccy, wise system monitor (and wise care 365), belarc advisor and similar programs.
Problems and resolutions (AKA suggestions to the developer):
1) After the program setup.exe was downloaded, MS internet explorer 11 said “The publisher of [this program] couldn’t be verified.”.
Therefore, when the program starts, the user account control window (when the UAC is enabled, obviously) appears and says “Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device?”.
I.e., there isn’t a valid certificate.
The obvious suggestion is to add a valid certificate.
2) Some information in its windows is cut.
I can’t either resize the columns or resize the main window.
And the balloon tips won’t even appear.
Hence my suggestion is to add balloon tips and/or to be able to resize columns (and the main window).
3) There are too much useless information.
My suggestion is to consider to create two modes: simple mode with only useful and less information, advanced mode like it already is.
4) Given that there are already valid free alternatives, consider to halve the price of your software.Apr 22, 2017 at 2:31 am #7720252
Poor representation of a System Tool for Information.
Belarc and the default Windows System Information does a better job of providing this information.
However a tool for a Novice user the information provides the Basics for the users workstation.Apr 22, 2017 at 2:55 am #7720403
On Win 7 , installs but wont register. The register box comes up but will not accept any keyboard function and
and will not let you right click to paste the code from the keyboard either!
Left with the free crippled version . Dont these software vendors try their products before offering ?
I agree belarc software free or SiSoft Sandra paid are far superior to this offering.
Would still be interested if you can post a fix for the registering problem with blackbird?Apr 22, 2017 at 2:58 am #7720419
Not only will the prog not register but when I post here it loses the message , trying again.
Cannot input any keyboard function nor right click in reg box . Why dont software vendors try their products before offering ?Apr 22, 2017 at 4:55 am #7721314
