    Hello folks,

    I recently decided to give MJ Registry Watcher a try after stumbling upon a thread in this forum. I have the latest version at time of posting v1.2.4.2. When I start TDS-3 its first act is to terminate (ZwTerminateProcess according to process guard) the program yet when I scan MJ Registry Watcher TDS-3 does not identify it as a trojan or any sort of Malware.

    Does anyone know why TDS-3 kills this on startup, its perfectly happy if I restart it after TDS-3 has loaded.

    Thanks,

    Morpheus.

    Its well known behaviour and has been brought up several times before...

    I know that doesn't answer the why question, but I can't think of a really good reason why it should, I just know that it does

    "bug" in the self protection against debuggers and other monitors (API spies, window monitors, lots of things)

    Best put as a bug.. not the desired behaviour
