If you are currently running a version of Covenant Eyes previous to Version 5 you do have to uninstall Covenant Eyes to upgrade. If you are on version 5.0 or later you can upgrade over your current version.
As a relevant side note, our newest builds of Covenant Eyes should remove or reduce the "Covenant Eyes is Malicious" message that Chrome has been throwing out forever... *fingers crossed
I was able to uninstall last night, but when I tried to reinstall (using Chrome and Firefox each), I got the "malicious download" information. I may not have selected the right one (version 5.0.xxx) and maybe that was the problem... I'll have to try it again when I get home tonight.
Hello. I uninstalled the older version and downloaded the newer version so my chrome could work. I had to disable my anti-virus and restarted my computer reinstating my anti virus. However now my anti virus is detecting a Trojan that seems to be attached to the latest covenant eyes download! And now several of my system processes are not working due to malware. my antivirus says it detected "Trojan.Win32.Hosts2.gen" located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ect\hosts. I am 100% sure it was from the covenant eyes download because the same thing happened to another computer right after I downloaded the new version. PLEASE HELP!
I replied to your comment in another thread. I have pasted it here as well for clarity
"Yeah, I know that is confusing, sorry.
4.5.3 is the 2 year old version of Covenant Eyes. Since then we have gutted the entire program and replaced the internals to make it faster/more stable/more capable. Which is AWESOME by the way.
However because of the dramatic changes, 4.5.3 is not compatible with the 5.x.x series of Covenant Eyes versions, so you cannot do an automatic upgrade. So the check for updates option is not actually working properly in that version, hence the invalid message.
I really want to fix this, but I have been told that it is extremely difficult. We will see tho.
Thanks for your understanding"
