Accessing FileHippo scans


Phoenix21

Likes # 0

I recently downloaded FileHippo so I could check for updates for the programmes I have on my PC. It keeps telling me I have 8 new updates and 3 beta updates waiting to be downloaded, but when I click on Show Results so I can deal with the updates, nothing happens. Does anyone know how I can access them?

You might need this, download/install then try again.

PS - click on 'Download latest version' as shown on the top right-hand side.

Ooops, nearly forgot - I would not advise you to download any Beta version, these are versions with development still in process and not yet fully tested.

Thank you, but I'm afraid that didn't work. After clicking on the link I got a 404 Error saying the page I requested could not be found.

In that case, I suggest that you, close everything on your desktop then restart PC in Safe mode and run Malwarebytes and any other security programs you have. Once done, restart again in normal mode and try Filehippo etc again.

Nontek,it appears it's your link that is showing the error 404.So I can not see any point in running Malwarebytes. Regards Tonsie.

I managed to get passed the Error 404 by writing the link in the address bar manually and downloaded the programme butI still couldn't get FileHippo to let me see the scan results. I then ran Malwarebytes and AdAware scans in Safe Mode but found nothing. Think I'll just give up on this one!! Thanks for you input everyone.
