IF you are just going to reply to with "ditch ROP and get a real AV", please don't bother to reply Smiley Wink

 

The other day AV and anti-spyware wouldn't start. I found this post, so I went ahead and downloaded andinstalled the new version. This fixed my issue, now I have another problem. I never before installed the TechXpert portion - no need for anyone to take over my computer, I can follow any instructions myself - thank you very much. (We do IT support for a living). Definitely not interested in a paying for this premium support that Rogers is reselling.

 

Now with this new version - it is REQUIRED to install TechXpert first in order to install ROP. Ok. as long as I don't hit anything in TechXpert to trigger a takeover, I guess I can live with it being installed, right?

 

WRONG!

The homepage on it (Status tab) states a tuneup will run in X hours, Question mark there explains what is included in a tuneup. Of the 4 items listed, I wish to disable 2 of them - but there does not appear to be any settings to adjust anything in the TechXpert dashboard:

- we make sure your pc is running at Peak performance

- automatically delete junk files

 

There is no explanation as to what it will do - is it running a PC cleaner type tool, defrag and the like, I don't want it. How does it determine what are 'junk' files?

 

Other than alerting me/fixing the basic ROP components (AV, anti-spyware, firewall), it should not be messing with my computer. It's intrusive if it's not clearly explained what exactly it is doing. 

 

If not in a settings interface, then is there something I can manually edit or remove in \Program Files\Rogers\TechXpert\ folder to effectively disable it?

 

Rogers chat provided me a link to Radialpoint's unistalller for TechXpert. I used that - it did show a warning that it was needed for ROP. Now that TechXpert is uninstalled, ROP will not let me adjust anything. It reports that I'm protected and that it appears to be updating the definitions, but that is all I can see/do. If I try to open the interface, it is greyed out (I can see it says last updated today, so it is running), and says "Rogers Online Protection was not authorized to run".

 

I will have to re-install TechXpert componet in order to properly use ROP.

 

It works quite well for our needs, and has been flawless for years (after deleting and blocking the identity and backup folders to prevent those compoents running which are not included in Basic ROP anyway), and we're paying for it anyway in essence it's built into our internet fee.

"Premium features include an enhanced two-way firewall to protect the computer from unauthorized connection attempts"

You have taken the firewall out of the Basic ROP ? !

Just spent the last ten minutes trying to download ROP. Been going round and round on here. Why not a simple button that says DOWNLOAD ROP? You could have it under Support. Keep seeing the instruction to go to rogers.com/get protected. Why no link to there instead? Does anyone actually think these things through?

 

If I have the free version can I protect more than one PC at a time?

Hello, @Cap07

 

Were you able to download the ROP? Please make sure you are downloading it when you are connected to your home Internet. Here is the link for ROP page.

 

You can protect up to 3 PCs with ROP Basic.

 

Cheers,

Not sure how I'd be able to even access Rogers website if I wasn't connected to the internet......
