Then I can't try YTK. I didn't think to repartitioning my hard drive and re-install Windows, and a lot of things as well.
Why the program explicitly use “C:”, and not uses windows default environment variables?January 26, 2007 at 4:12 pm #155922
It's to prevent problems some users were experiencing with normal use (errors and such) mainly this…
Software vendors these days are starting to force C: to prevent problems.February 3, 2007 at 11:11 pm #155906Jeff HesterKeymaster
YTK Works with Windows VistaNovember 16, 2007 at 5:31 pm #155940__GHOST__Member
I wonder if vendors who force C drive use think about those of us who partition our hard drives and try to keep as much as possible on drives other than C. That way, if C drive crashes or needs reformatted to get rid of some nasty malware, you don't lose all your apps, you just have to reinstall windows and a few other major system apps.
Twice I've had malware sneak in that no antivirus caught.
The first one put some files on my C drive that masqueraded as critical system files and some of those files couldn't be cleaned or deleted or removed in any way, except by reformatting and reinstalling C drive.
The wickedest one I've never seen mentioned on any antivirus site even almost a year after my experience. That particular malware DELETED all antivirus and antispyware app exe files. When I reinstalled spybot S&D and Norton antivirus, the malware instantly deleted the exe as it was installed. Online scans were impossible, the malware somehow prevented scans from running. I tested several different online scan sites and tried to download several different antivirus and antispyware/antimalware programs and no matter what I tried, this wicked bug deletetd all app exe files as quick as I tried to install them and blocked all scans. System restore wouldn't work.
In the end, I had to reformat my C drive to get rid of this wicked virus. I emailed descriptions of this malware and its behavior to several AV and antispyware companies, but never got any response. I never saw anything that was like this particular virus before or since and I never have seen anything since then about a virus with this behavior.
Ever since that experience, I've kept as much as possible on other drives and tried to keep C drive to bare bones system files.
So there are very good reasons to want to install things on drives other than C!:cool:November 18, 2007 at 6:14 pm #155911
What exactly has this got to do with the topic?
Most installations offer a choice of installation point
There is a reason you run scans in safe mode by the wayJanuary 29, 2008 at 2:04 am #155944
Any idea why my Yahoo Chat keeps logging me out then back in when I use YTK Lite?January 29, 2008 at 5:40 pm #155923
Hello, and welcome to BigBlueBall. 🙂 You shouldn't use YTK Lite, because of changes Yahoo made to the servers in the last several months. Because of that, the current YTK Lite won't work at all.
I'd wait until around the launch of YTK Pro v2.0 when the next major version of YTK Lite should be released. 🙂January 29, 2008 at 7:25 pm #155939YahooliganMemberVen0m;226065 wrote:Hello, and welcome to BigBlueBall. 🙂 You shouldn't use YTK Lite, because of changes Yahoo made to the servers in the last several months.

Good to know! Maybe someone should add a note at the top of this thread and save people from having to read through pages of replies to find out? (hint – hint) 😉January 30, 2008 at 6:51 pm #155912

Will YTK Pro v2.0 work with Yahoo Messenger 9.0 Beta?February 3, 2008 at 10:57 pm #155913February 4, 2008 at 8:52 pm #155924
The current YTK Pro v1.5 builds already work with Yahoo! Messenger v9.0 beta. 😛
