    The first link (datafilehost) resolves to a Setup.exe file that installs copious amounts of MalWare. I had to force power off and delete like 15 programs. First malware encounter in about a decade. I was a bit of a rube on autopilot to click on a Setup.exe file!

    EDITED: The second link looks alright but puts up a message box with non-Unicode/ASCII text and closes out.

    I cannot get either link to work. First one says
    "
    The file you requested (id 733226a8) does not exist. It might have been deleted due to inactivity (no downloads) or due to not complying with our terms."

    Second one links to nothing. Any chance I someone could post an updated link?​

    First of all I want to thank the developer for this app!
    BIOS back up ""might"' give me enough courage to get me to finally update my 1215Ns BIOS, so it'll read the 4GBs of RAM.

    Secondly on the first post the First link is dead, with no dnload. And the second link went to Mega Storage where I had to RE-Install my Mega app to download their downloader to dnload the app.
    It dnloaded this BIOS Bkup and Comodo Internet Secrity Suite did a Popup warning me that that dnload had a infection called..
    Suspicious@#28se8uway4ssy

    Which seems to be named correctly, as kind of "Suspicious" to me!

    Is there any way to take that "Suspicious" thingy out and repack the exe?

    So now I be back to waiting to BKUP my BIOS.

    Later!

    Every BIOS I have ever seen has the capability to backup the bios with its upgrade program and which also has the capability to restore it. Modern BIOS have two chips and one is the backup. I see no need for this program nor would I trust it since it has been reported to install malware and generate alerts.

    It seems that this tool is not Windows 10 compatible.
    I even disabled UAC and ran with admin rights.
    Compatibility mode doesn't help either.

    Here is a code snippit I'm using, but found someone online getting "Unknown OEM marker present in firmware"

    What is the missing SLIC sig?

    Code:
                    else if (checkOEM(out buffer, "SLIC"))
                    {
                        oemkey = BitConverter.ToString(buffer, 0xe2, 0x04);
    
                        switch (oemkey)
                        {
                            case "00-00-00-00":
                                return "Windows Vista OEM marker present in firmware";
                            case "01-00-02-00":
                                return "Windows 7 OEM marker present in firmware";
                            case "02-00-02-00":
                                return "Server 2012 OEM marker present in firmware";
                            case "03-00-02-00":
                                return "Server 2012 R2 OEM marker present in firmware";
                            default:
                                return "Unknown OEM marker present in firmware";
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Hi everyone, i'm new here.

    However, I also can't find a download which is not blocked due to malware issues. Both Chrome and my Norton antivirus block or delete the download instantly. Including above link..

    And although the author adds that it may pop up as virus, then why have some people reported on this thread having to deal with malware?
