    Thank you HappyAndyK,
    as I said I had been a beta tester of this so called security software, I translated into italian too.
    I left IOBit forums, I removed all IOBit softwares from all my computers and no longer reccomend it.

    I was aware they were on the point to bundle a spyware toolbar into their programs, but I was not allowed to tell pubblicy, now there are no longer problems for me.

    IOBit toolbar is likely to be "Ask com toolbar" or "Conduit toolbar" renamed, however some antivirus detected IOBit toolbar as malware.

    I'm going to make some tests and I'll post my results here and on Calendar Of Updates Forums.

    In the meanwhile you may read this related review by Donna MVP

    IObit Security 360 Review: Free Malware Scanner and Remover



    Performance and Effectiveness
    Rating


    IObit Security 360 will use 14MB of memory when it is idle. Running a scan will used more memory – 79MB.
    The quick scanner of IObit Security 360 finished scanning in 4 minutes and 33 seconds and it able to scan 58,990 objects. What is interesting is when I let it scan the system drive, it finished in 16 minutes and 55 seconds but it only reported to scan 14,403 objects. I proceed to change the default settings by un-checking the box before “scan executable files only”. The program is able to scan 102,760 in 34 minutes and 58 seconds.
    Real-time Protection: The real-time protection of the program failed to stop any of the malware files while transferring and storing from removable drive to the system drive. This means the real-time protection of IObit Security 360 is very poor.
    On-Demand Scanner: I test the malware scanner of the program but it only detected 24 out of 50 positive malware samples. IObit Security 360 successfully quarantined the 24 malware. I changed the scanner settings to scan all files (by un-checking the box before “scan executable files only”) but the program continue to not to detect the remaining 26 malware files.
    Note that the samples in the test is exactly the same malware samples I tested against AntiVir and Microsoft Security Essentials.

    You're welcome HappyAndyK,
    well according to IOBit company IS 360 is an antispyware wich should be used along side any antivirus (but Avira and some other antivirus do not play well with it)


    Here is what I've just reported to The Hall of Shame (Unwanted addons) at CoU

    Thanks for the information my friend, I thought I remembered reading something somewhere about this and you reminded me, so I did not have to search for it.

    Add this information to that provided by leofelix:

    Malwarebytes has recently uncovered evidence that a company called IOBit based in China is stealing and incorporating our proprietary database and intellectual property into their software. We know this will sound hard to believe, because it was hard for us to believe at first too. But after an indepth investigation, we became convinced it was true. Here is how we know.
    See the complete story at IOBit Steals Malwarebytes' Intellectual Property, including information on the how the MBAM Staff made the determination.

    I have known the Malwarebytes developers and researchers for a long time. You can be absolutely certain that they dotted every "i" and crossed every "t" and then checked yet again before publishing their findings.
