    I just downloaded the new version of Instagram Manager from Imristo.com website.

    After download, unzipping it, and running it with Sanboxie (yeah, I'm very paranoid about programs I run on my computer); my antivirus program kicked in.

    It said that InstagramManager.exe was blocked from trying to access rickaoi.com.br

    I checked that domain out, and it has nothing to do with "InstagramManager" from what I can see.

    I wonder why Imristo would have a program trying to access a domain that has nothing to do with the program he developed.

    I stopped using the program and deleted it from my computer. If anyone is out there using it, just be aware. I'm not saying it's malware, etc., just be careful.

    If anyone has more info, please chime in.

    Sandboxie is a virtual sandbox environment, not a network analyzer. You can't see where the traffic is going with Sandboxie. So I'm not sure where you got this from.

    Make sure your computer is clean before you make complains about my software. Considering that you use Sandboxie, you must be downloading and trying a lot of different software, so something might have infected your PC.

    There are hundreds if not thousands of users using the software and I have NEVER heard of such a complain. You can try using Wireshark/Fiddler to confirm that my software has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with that domain/IP address whatsoever.

    I ran it in a sandboxed environment - also paranoid - and watched traffic with wireshark. I saw nothing out of the ordinary. I now run it on my PC. It's a very handy piece of software.

    @JustChillin, nothing against you man. You can read my comments about you here on the forum. Nothing but respect.
    I run all programs on Sandboxie out of habit. This keeps any downloaded program out of reach of the computer and any other programs. Anyone that's a little techie or has any sense of privacy and protection will sandbox their running programs. ie. I'm not referring to the well known and popular programs such as Word, Excel, Photoshop and the like.

    As noted by me, it was my antivirus software that stopped InstagramManager because it was trying to access that .br domain. My computer is not infected, because if it was, my other running programs would have been stopped by my antivirus. The antivirus only stopped InstagramManager as it was trying to access a website that it had no reason to be accessing. My AV specifically shows me which program it is and which site and IP that program was trying to access.
    Sandboxie does not stop a program from accessing a domain/website/URL, if it's already allowing it to access the internet. Sandboxie just keeps the running program in its own little world with no access to your computer or other programs inside your computer. Once again, it was my antivirus that caught and stopped InstagramManager.

    Again, no disrespect, but this is what I found while running your program on my computer.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to offend you at all. But if you were in my position you would also act like this, if you keep getting accused of something everyday which you didn't do. Just put yourself in my shoes and look at the situation from a different perspective before you post something.

    The worst part is that people keep CLAIMING something which they don't even have proof for. Just a bunch of text and that's all. I'll report this thread to a moderator to get removed, because there's actually no proof whatsoever. Could you imagine if people would start accusing every software developer of viruses/malware just because their software has a bunch of false positives? This forum will turn into a clown fest.

    I've made a scan on the FollowLiker launcher just to prove you that false positives happen almost for every software out there. But I don't see people complain about FollowLiker, yet they complain about my software, because I have less reputation than them.

    Also, I wouldn't recommend you to rely on Sandboxie. I've known the program since years ago and I've used it a few times myself. But it's far from bulletproof and there are many exploits around for it.
