Possible exclusion list - VirtualBox false positive

Houndog750 5 years ago updated by Unchecky 4 years ago 3

At startup VirtualBox checks for updates and presents a dialog with the link to download the updated version. The dialog box hangs and a forced shutdown is necessary to exit VirtualBox. So far this is the only false positive I've run into and I've thrown a LOT at Unchecky in a VM and it has nailed everything including installers that slip the crapware in behind your back.


Is it possible to add exclusions for know safe installers and updaters? Temporarily suspending the service does allow the option to update.


Unrelated, but is there a way to donate to the project?

Thank you for the feedback.

I tried to reproduce the issue, but I cannot get it to hang. Screenshot below.

The version I tried is: Version 5.0.12 r104815.

Which version are you using?

It would seem I have a very old version. The latest download appears to be v0.4.2 (December 24, 2015). I'm not finding a link for Version 5.0.12 r104815. Do you have a link for this version? I'm assuming unchecky.com is the official website.


VirtualBox Version 5.0.12 r104815 can be found here:

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_5_0

And yes, unchecky.com is the official website of Unchecky.

We suggest you to make sure that you have automatic updates enabled for Unchecky, so that you'll always be using the latest version.
