Thanks bitcoin for help proving I'm not crazy! even though I knew I wasn't because even Total Virus here proves that these connections do come from WizTree.exe and not from "my system"...

v3.36:

v3.35:

As you can see 3.35 does not have this "problem".


So in the end it turned out to be Malware after all LOL!

Antibody, you might want to look into a better firewall setup :P, you seem to be part of a botnet without even knowing it, and who knows what other "connections" are freely coming and going without your knowing.


But in the end I'm glad we could figure this one out and I hope you can fix this, your programs seem to have this negative stigma between communities that I follow, I shill your work whenever I can, but then people always follow up reply with something like "they phone home" no thanks! Like in these two comments...

https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads ... st-2991326

And I guess I cannot blame them because they technically do, and that's enough to turn people off and not come back when there are so many alternatives like "Everything", "SpaceSniffer", etc. I know if you didn't reach out to me in the comments here, I would have stuck with v3.35, until I felt like going to an alternative, because I won't deal with constant firewall nagging popups in my offline software.

But the fact that you reachout out too me here and did some digging I'll continue to happily shill your programs when I can. Lastly, FYI I'm on Window 10 1909.

Oh, and bitcoin and I will gladly accept a supporter code for all our hard work! :)

@Special - It's not malware - it's the windows API function "WinVerifyTrust" (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... erifytrust) that was triggering the Internet connectivity. I wasn't aware that this would happen so I've removed this function from version 3.37 (released today). Sorry I assumed your PC had malware. :)

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback.

Hey your words not mine "I checked the IP 151.139.128.14 and it appears to be linked to malware activity", and you're right, but so am I, Windows 10 is malware/botnet. :D

Oh snap I was half-kidding on this, but will gladly take you up on your offer :P (I'll shill extra hard for now on for your great support as proven in this thread!)

Expect an email from mr_wh***********... in a few.

EDIT: Okay I sent you an email, but I think I goofed and the first one didn't go through, so I resent it... so maybe you got two emails from me, so oops if you did.
EDIT2: Received, and a big thank you! And can confirm that 3.37 is working "perfectly".

Hi @antibody. Please allow changing font size (maybe font family too). Some of us are not young anymore :-)
You can change the font size by editing the WizTree3.ini file directly. Increase the "fontheight" and "rowheight" values to suit. Only edit the file when WizTree isn't active or it will undo your changes when you close it.
WizTree3.ini lives in the same folder as WizTree.exe in the portable version, otherwise it's in %appdata%\WizTree3\WizTree3.ini
