    Rarely use the FileHippo Update Checker. Normally I do not use anything.

    • PortableApps.com Platform Updater (for portable programs that follow PortableApps.com Format specification)

    • KC SUMo (for installed programs ; also tweaked to scan folder with portable programs that don't follow PortableApps.com Format specification)

    For SUMo, you should get Lite or Portable version that doesn't have opt-out bundles.

    I just downloaded SUMo and Nod32 alerted me. I guess it's a false positive?


    I submitted it for analysis anyway.

    Your AV's are reporting the toolbar's and rk in the sumo.exe. I think that it is safe although annoying, but the developer needs it for funding. If that is bothering you, just download sumo lite in the download page for sumo.

    Thanks. I also tried the nork version but the following was reported..


    I think I'll give SUMo a miss for now and try again at another time.

    You should try SUMo LITE, not "nork".

    Here is a direct link: http://www.kcsoftwares.com/files/sumo_lite.exe

    You can find it at the download page where it reads "Free of all sponsors download links" (CTRL+F this to find faster).

    But the sumo_nork version is supposed to not contain the Relevant Knowledge bundle. There are options to install other stuff though.

    The AV detections some are seeing relate to Relevant Knowledge, and not to SuMo itself or other bundled software.
