d7 is not the malware scanner or remover, YOU are. YOU control it’s behavior by whitelist/blacklist functionality, and by your own pair of hopefully good eyeballs. d7′s MalwareScan functionality is designed to show you what d7 doesn’t recognize, by whitelisting known good items, and automatically deleting known bad items. d7′s MalwareScan merely shows you what is left after the whitelisting/blacklisting is applied. From there, you have the option to whitelist, blacklist, delete, rename, ignore, google, or whatever you want with the results.

Included with d7 are some sample whitelists (yet no blacklists.) It’s up to you to decide if you should use them and add to them, or delete them and create your own.

THIS TOOL IS INTENDED FOR EXPERIENCED PC TECHNICIANS ONLY, NOT FOR “END USERS.” This tool can be very dangerous and destructive if you don’t know how to use it properly, or are inexperienced in malware removal techniques.

I have provided an online manual, which I do encourage EVERYONE to read, however most functions inside d7 are self-explanatory or include enough information in the tool tips (over your mouse over the name of the function) for any experienced computer technician to recognize what it is and what it does. If you are really confused, then just ASK ME and I’ll try to explain it!

Feedback is appreciated! Please always include your name and email address so I can get back with you. I am always interested in hearing your ideas for new features as well as existing issues with the software. If you are reporting an issue, please first check the known bugs in the about / release notes screen of d7, and if not listed, include steps that I can take to recreate the problem you are experiencing. Also be sure to give me the details of the operating system and circumstances under which you were operating this software (e.g. malware removal scenario, performing maintenance, etc.)

PORTABLE USE:  d7 is a fully portable application, however there are some considerations for those who define “portable” very strictly, and you may wish to visit the SETUP section in the ONLINE MANUAL to the left, to read the PORTABLE USAGE NOTES.

Hi!
It's a really great set of tools, I'm with the set since at least D7 v4. I have to convince my sis to buy it - she runs a little IT business and I sometimes help her in my free time.
The small cherries like "Windows Installer working in Safe Mode" tweak or PIO -> UDMA fix really saved (and still saves sometimes) many computer-asses :)
One little thing - links for D7 Free on this page aren't pointing to D7 v10.4.8 Free, but the older version.

Thanks, Nick, for your hard work!

All the best,
Martin

Response: Awesome, thanks Martin!

Note the free version is still at v10.0.18 that update alert within d7 was a mistake which I will rectify ASAP.

Needs improvement, doesn't fix issues, appeals only to seasoned pro's for time savings on multiple machines. Very pricy. Advise a single and up to 5 machine licenses, undo ability and lower prices to appeal to the masses of power users and home techs. And I want a bottle opener USB thumb drive too. ;)

Response: I\'m still glad that despite your words you gave it 4/5 stars. First, d7 is not intended for the masses of power users and home techs, at all, only for the seasoned pro\'s and yes primary appeal is allowing techs to work on multiple machines at once.. I do admit d7 will always need improvement, however I don\'t get what you mean about it doesn\'t fix issues and needs undo ability -- can you be more specific? Free or premium user, I\'ve always listened to the feedback I receive from any d7 user, and strive to use that to improve the product.

Best money spent in my business. Allowing me to focus on the main issue rather then the silly scans.

Keep up the work!


Best investment ever!

I can't thank Nick and the Technibble community enough for bringing d7 into my life and business. It has paid for itself many times over by making me ever so more productive and efficient in repairing and maintaining my customers' PCs. Don't procrastinate - you won't regret purchasing it. Like me, you'll soon wonder how you ever worked without it!
All the best,
Julian

Probably should have posted this earlier, just slipped my mind!  http://podnutz.com/live and there will be live Q&A in the IRC chat I believe.

Recent ‘d7 is no longer licensed’ message…

January 5, 2014 in d7

A small number of d7 users may be incorrectly flagged for not having a valid d7 license starting with v10.4.5 – v10.4.11

If you are affected, please accept my deepest apologies!  I am aware of the issue and working to resolve it.

Affected users may not be able to update d7 in this event through its internal update mechanism – should a fix be reached (stay tuned)…  If this is the case then the latest version of d7 can be downloaded from here:  http://download.foolishit.com/d7Update.zip  and all you need to do is extract the d7.exe over the top of your existing one.  The current release at that link may be untested.  Also be certain that the PC is connected to the internet.

I will update this post as a permanent fix is reached.

UPDATE:  Please try v10.4.8 from the link above.  I have one report of this resolving the issue.

UPDATE 1/13/14:  Please try v10.4.11 from the link above.  I have one report of this resolving the issue.

UPDATE 1/14/14:  Please try v10.4.15 or above from the link above.  I discovered there was an issue on some systems without having the Microsoft Scripting Runtime (scrrun.dll) file fully registered or registration was somehow corrupt; this was causing my code in the license check to fail (and would have caused other unintended consequences in other areas of d7 functionality!!!)  I discovered that re-registering the file resolved the issue, e.g. regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\scrrun.dll and also on 64bit systems %systemroot%\syswow64\regsvr32.exe %systemroot%\syswow64\scrrun.dll - this should fix not only the license issue but potentially other strange or unexpected issues you may have had with d7 on these systems as well.  You may also manually execute the commands above in bold in an administrative command prompt to manually re-register the file(s) yourself and earlier versions of d7 should then pass the license check without error.

UPDATE 1/22/14:  RESOLVED WITH WORK-AROUND:  On some systems, registering scrrun.dll does not fix the issue with Microsoft Scripting Runtime.  I must figure out a way to fix this issue as it WILL affect other areas of d7 (anytime a file must be read into an array line by line) which affects functionality like MalwareScan’s reading of whitelist/blacklists, to name one.  Regardless I must get d7 working for you at least somewhat, so on these systems, v10.4.19 was just released which will grant a temporary reset in the license check timer, allowing d7 to continue to load normally.  This will only happen provided your previous license check did not yield a bad product key, and this may be the case if you were previously affected by this bug.  To resolve the issue, you MUST remove the line “LastBLC=” and all the stuff following the = sign from your d7\Config\d7.ini file, then restart d7, at which point it should load normally.

I want to thank all of those affected for your patience with me until this matter was resolved, and for helping me to resolve it with your assistance and testing, and please accept my sincerest apologies for the issue!

d7 and dSupportSuite now integrate with RepairShopr!

December 6, 2013 in 3rd Party Apps, d7, dSupportSuite

What is RepairShopr?

RepairShopr is an all-in-one system integrating tickets, CRM, invoices, and marketing in a simple, easy-to-use platform designed specifically for computer repair shops. The streamlined workflow allows you to increase shop efficiency while powerful leads and marketing tools help you build customer relationships to grow your business.

d7 Integration

Currently RepairShopr can receive reports from d7′s email reports feature (including the system information report, activity logs, malware logs, etc.) and save / display all of the various reports under your customer / ticket number in RepairShopr’s console.  This requires the ticket number to be prompted for within d7, the word ‘d7′ to appear in the email subject (as it does by default), and reports should be emailed unzipped from d7 to your ticket reply email configured in RepairShopr.

dSupportSuite Integration

Currently RepairShopr has a powerful integration for receiving dSupportSuite’s daily Heartbeat emails.  The really neat thing about this feature is that you can have RepairShopr configured to receive all of your daily Heartbeats instead of having to receive them and filter through them yourself, then it can email you an alert only when necessary.  Not only will you receive the reports through RepairShopr’s console, but RepairShopr can be configured to alert you when the Heartbeat emails fail to be received for xx number of days.  Also if the Heartbeat email contains certain terminology/phrases (completely configurable) RepairShopr can alert you automatically in this event, ex. “virus detected, failing, disk error” etc. etc.   dSupportSuite must be configured to email the Heartbeats to your ticket reply email configured in RepairShopr.

Etc.

I will be following up soon with a Youtube video on configuration of both products for these features, and what to expect from usage.

Also note that this is just the beginning of my collaboration with the folks at RepairShopr.  While nothing specific is currently planned for future integrations and collaboration, we are leaving discussions open as to what more can be done to add value to both of our product lines, while making your life easier as a tech.  If you are a user of both of our products and you have a neat idea for an integration between them, please let us know!
