What If Antivirus Software Says that D-Back Is Dangerous?

There are few users who report that iMyFone D-Back is prevented by antivirus software. Normally this doesn't happen. Even if it happens, it doesn't mean the program is dangerous.

When an antivirus program detects a non-malicious file as malware, this is known as a false positive. For example, you might get a message from Norton (Symantec Corporation) or other antivirus program saying that iMyFone is dangerous. This is only because of the false-positive problem that antivirus programs like Norton cannot avoid.

This situation is quite normal although we have taken several measures to ensure that it doesn't happen. Each antivirus program has its own scanning engine and we try to submit D-Back to all of common antivirus software developers each time we have an update to ensure that it is added to the whitelist. We may not, however, be able to cover all antivirus programs and if they at any time update their scanning engines, we have to resubmit iMyFone D-Back to ensure we remain whitelisted. Here is a result of our False Positive submission to Norton in which virus or threats were not detected.

What If iMyFone D-Back Doesn't Work Normally or Crashes?

Like every other program installed on your computer, iMyFone D-Back can crash for several reasons. One of the most common reasons is that the antivirus software installed on your computer can falsely delete some of the files of the program which can cause D-Back to function abnormally or crash. If this happens, the best course of action is to disable the antivirus software on your computer and then re-install D-Back. You will be able to use the program without a problem.

Will D-Back Slow Down Your Computer?

Your computer may slow down when D-Back is in use and when it is scanning a device. But this is rare. It only happens when the device you are scanning has a huge amount of data stored on it. It usually requires a computer with good performance to run the program especially when there is a large size of data on your device. If you notice this is happening, you need to close any other programs you have opened on your computer until the scanning process is completed. In addition, it will not slow down your computer if you are using the other 2 methods "Recover from iTunes Backup" and "Recover from iCloud Backup".

What If You Are Not Able to Uninstall iMyFone D-Back?

In very rare cases, some users have reported that they are unable to uninstall iMyFone D-Back when they need to. If you are having this problem, first begin by ensuring that all D-Back related windows have been closed. Otherwise, you will not be able to uninstall the program.

If at any time you are unable to uninstall D-Back from your computer, make sure that the program is completely closed by checking in the task manager (Windows) or Activity Monitor (Mac) before attempting to uninstall. If you find that there are some files still open, quit them first.

It is also likely that D-Back's uninstaller has been deleted mistakenly by antivirus software. So, if you are still having problems, disable the antivirus software and reinstall D-Back over the current version before attempting to uninstall the program. You can then enable the antivirus on your computer again.
