    According to who? Its not blocked by DynDNS's filters for malware, fraud, gambling, or any of those sorts.

    Norton's DNS service is blocking it.

    It is an rootkit scanner. It replaced RootKit Hook Analyzer. I have used it occasionally. Can't say how effective it is though at detecting rootkits.

    In its default non-expert mode, it generates a log report (you have to scroll to bottem to see). What I like about it for average use is that it does not confuses the end user with difficult messages.

    I occasionally add it to PC setups of friends. In 99 out of 100 situations it reports that you are clean in average Joe/Jane terminologie.

    I have no idea why Norton decided to call it 'malicious'. However the site and software offered there is safe.

    I also use SanityCheck occasionally.

    Edit: Norton has misclassified a system monitoring utility software as spyware (MultiMon Lite).

    Jav, afaik PCTools is owned by Symantec. Hardly a surprise both software classify it as the same threat? :)

    Norton DNS block the site and classify MultiMonLite.exe -http://www.resplendence.com/download/MultiMonLite.exe- as "Spyware.Keylogger", while one community member classify the site as safe. Other downloads are rated as Clean.

    Comodo DNS allows it. Maybe it was hijacked for a while. What better place to hijack for a trojan/rootkit than a rootkit site. :argh:

    Thanks for clarifying, I was unaware of it.

    Anyway I was just informing, wilders members are free to decide who to belive, and make conclusions from it.

    I tend to think it is false positive, however I still would be a bit cautious.

    This is probably because of multimonlite.exe, which Norton have tagged as a keylogger.

    What hijacking? There is powerful system monitoring software available, which apparently is classified as keylogger by overly zealous Norton/Symantec software. Why, because it offers the sysadmin among other things the option to monitor keyboard input.

    Interesting in that Norton's DNS is managed by DynDNS.

    For gosh sakes people, one I'm a geek and a Tech I'm not posting to malicious or rogue sites, LOL... Oh boy... :blink:

    So now that we've gotten past all that nonsense, I'd like to hear from people using this...


    THANKS
