    I have used Easy to Use to backup for some time.  Suddenly tonight when I go to open the program I get a user account control box asking me if I want to let the program loader.exe  make changes to my computer.  It also is suddenly doing the same on my wife’s computer.

      Can you give a link to the website for the software?

      Was there a recent update?

        The notice, is:

        User Account Control:  (I assume from Windows Security, I am wondering if a recent virus threat update from Wednesday night or Thursday morning caused it not to recognize the publisher)

        It says:  “Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device?”  Options are “Yes  No”   At that point you have three options, click yes, or No or close the box before you can do anything else.

        The file location is:  C:\program files(x86) EaseUS\Todo Backup\bin\loader.exe    It’s date is from 2019 which is about when I would have installed the program.  This is also the file the short cute starts.

        Here is a link to EasytoUse website:  https://www.easeus.com/backup-software/  We are running paid for copies but have not updated to a newer version since we bought it.

      More Information:

      The User Account Control notice is yellow.

      It occurs to us that in the past we did get a notice, where the user account control notice was blue but basically said “Do you want to allow this app  from publisher  XXX to make changes to your device.”  Then “Verified User XXX

      I think we were so use to clicking yes that we never thought about it to the message changed color and referred to an unknown publisher.  Still it seems funny that this changed all of a sudden, so I am interest in any thoughts or guidance.
