    I finally got around to reinstalling Zemana. As a long time license holder I was pretty disappointed that all of the 1.9.xx builds had caused some sort of system instability. This now seems to finally have been solved.

    Although I'm still in the early stages of testing to see if the product is still effective, so far I am happily surprised that it is doing quite well against a range of new ransomware- these being of a type that Zemana yielded mixed results in the past. Autorun detection also seems to have been tweaked (so far) to perfection.

    Bravo.

    Pretty much finished any testing that I will do on Zemana with the following observations:

    1). As a primary anti-keylogger Zemana provides protection against the known and unknown (unreleased KL's coded by staff) keyloggers that I have in our KL zoo. Whether or not such protection is actually needed has to be decided by the individual user, considering other protection that may exist.

    Remember that for a keylogger to be effective it must consist of two components- the keylogging module as well as a transmission module. A KL can log to its hearts content but will be rendered totally innocuous by an outbound firewall that blocks the transmission of information to the net.

    2). In the post above I noted that Zemana is very sensitive to malware that want to autostart. This certainly remains true. The downside is that although just the prevention of letting the malware autostart will stop some malware in its tracks, for others malicious activity will continue until system restart.

    3). Overall detection is quite good, with Zemana letting ~15% through. As Zemana should not be (and isn't meant to be) one's only malware defense, an 85% rate is impressive.

    So would one need Zemana if it will be run alongside an AM suite with HIPS and Sandboxing? Probably not. But if you are running a product that depends solely on definitions, Zemana would be very useful indeed.

    Nice, did you test on x64 or x86?

    For maximum fairness I ran my tests in a x86 box.

    For reasons that have nothing to do with the program itself, I am strongly biased in favor of Spyshelter. Not sure if I would be able to detach enough in order to evaluate it fairly.
