    What is going on with the signature handling on your computer? Seems off.

    A similar issue, also concerning a Windows Vista 32 bits system, was mentioned at the (Dutch) Security.NL, recently.
    See post and thread "False positives Hitman Pro??"
    That poster said he/she was planning to contact HitmanPro support.
    Anything about that in HitmanPro support logs, perhaps, Erik?

    I get an error when I want to scan a map with a HitmanPro Beta-version. Right click: Scan with HitmanPro. Tested with the old build 247 beta. No problem with non-beta build 248. Apparently it only works with a non-beta-version.

    (W10 build 10240 64 bits/Norton Security with Backup v22.5.2.15)

    I found more information. The Vista machines exhibiting this issue have files that are signed with a SHA-256 digest algorithm. Windows XP and Vista do not support this algorithm. See screenshot:

    VistaAuth.png

    Have you tried upgrading to Windows 8 or Windows 10? If so, these files might be residue of a failed upgrade to Windows 8 or 10.

    Why do these files popup now? Because these files have a signature that expires on 2015-10-01.

    Fact is, you have a Windows 8 or 10 file on your computer. Can you post a screenshot of the version information?

    Probably Windows Update. I keep finding update KB's and stuff to either clean off or block MS updates now a major source of spyware. They call it Telemetry GRRR

    Already reported, just whitelist/ignore them. Like many tools, it wrongly assumes that some PUP-bundled apps are unwanted, even if you unchecked everything and not PUP is installed.

    @Peter2150
    Yes, regarding Windows 7 and 8 systems.
    But Windows Vista, as is deugniet's system?
    I don't know. No such files on my Vista x86 system.

    @deugniet
    Did you install the optional update KB2999226 for Windows Vista, by any chance? I didn't.
    The KB2999226 articles says:
    Could this be the Windows 10 files Erik was thinking of?

    Incredible. Microsoft made a mess of it. These files do not validate on XP or Vista :eek:

    It's not the first time.
    Earlier, EMET 4.1 Update 1 was signed with SHA256, not supported on Vista.
    Later, a new EMET 4.1 Update version was released, signed using SHA1.
    EMET 5.2 was also signed using SHA1.
    But now with KB2999226 Microsoft seems to make the same mistake all over again.
    Well, I think Microsoft just doesn't care.

    HitmanPro 3.7.10 Build 250 Released

    Changelog
    • ADDED: Workaround for KB2999226 on Windows Vista.
      The files in KB2999226 are digitally signed with the SHA-256 algorithm. Authenticode signatures with SHA-256 digest are not supported on Windows Vista. This resulted in that HitmanPro listed these files as suspicious.
    • FIXED: Tracking Cookie scan for Internet Explorer.
    Users are automatically updated.

    Hi Erik and Hi Mark

    Can you check the 2 Files and whitelisted the 2 Files please. I use the FP function into the Programm to submit the File to you

    With best Regards
