Discussion in 'other anti-malware software' started by datarishik, Jul 26, 2011.
Thanks for pointing this out.
FYI, per the Zemana compatibility list, it won't run with Sunbelt.
Would Zemana work well along with Online Armor and Emsisoft Anti-Malware? I mean, OA already have keylogger detection and EAM has its behavior blocker which detects keyloggers as well. Does it protect against screengrabbers on a x64 system?
That was evident when I was beta testing Vipre in early 2010.
It was addressed and I have had no problem running Vipre together with Zemana on XP Pro SP3.
Also, see - VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware dosent work with Zemana

No free upgrades to future versions with the giveaway. Given that the full 64bit support is due the end of this month, this giveaway is a bit of a teaser to get people to upgrade after they have it installed. Fair enough...give away the old version in the hope of getting users to upgrade. Plenty of other vendors have done that.
No it doesnt. If you want that then use Spyshelter.
Does anyone know if Zemana would work well with DefenseWall and Avira.
http://zemana.com/AntiloggerCompatibility.aspx#tab I saw one member here running defensewall and zemana antilogger if my memory serves me right.
Thanks for that.
The few videos I watched on YouTube didn't show a good performance from Zemana.
In one of them there was even a Rootkit in system32\DRIVERS.
Even if it is meant as another layer of protection it lets too much stuff pass by.
Yes, it does let some things by, but so do most other security apps. It's still one of the best performers on the MRG tests for real-time protection.
Indeed that is why I was looking at it. There is always the chance something will come along that gets past your security apps no matter how good you might think they are.
Nick from Sunbelt has stated (as you linked), "The issues may just be more evident on one system compared to another but it is not suggested to run the two programs alongside each other."
And Zemana published a compatibility list which clearly includes Sunbelt.
I've heard it said that running incompatible software together may result in issues that the average user is unable to notice on the surface. That makes sense to me. And when both companies are saying it isn't advisable, well hit me in the head with a hammer.
I have no vested interest in what will or won't run with Zemana... I'm just passing along info FWIW.
In fact, not just some things.
It claims to have a "System-Defense" module.
In my lexicon this means HIPS properties.
How come the "System" got compromised in such an obvious way?
As well, the habit of free licenses every two months doesn't provoque much confidence.
I just don't feel comfortable with Zemana, but that's myself.
Just because it has some HIPS capabilities it's doesn't automatically become an invincible malware shield. If you want proper HIPS then get a proper HIPS. Zemana is not a full HIPS. It's an anti-banking malware solution, but even then it is proving very effective in the zero day MRG flash tests.
But it's not everyones cup of tea and just like an AV it shouldn't be your first line of defense.
It should stop system compromises (as it promises); otherwise don't claim what you can not deliver.
It's an anti keylogger.
Who's tests... ?
Like he just said, the MRG Flash tests.
If you run programs like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware etc, you should not have any keyloggers, so in that case, the Zemana antilogger will be useless and will just take up RAM and resources for nothing. Isn't that right? Or am I missing something?
Ideally, yes, if your setup is perfect you won't have any malware at all. However, antikeyloggers assume you have a keylogger on your computer and use methods to prevent any keyloggers from working properly.
Oh your not familiar with them? Read up on the MRG Flash Tests thread in the antivirus forum...you might have a bit more of a positive attitude about Zemana after doing so.
I love TheMozart's posts... they are so thought provoking.
oh... those tests; the ones where some apps do good, when they did bad in all other tests. I knew I was missing something.
That sounds nuts, so they intent for you to keep your keylogger on your system so they can work to help you, instead of suggesting you clean the keylogger from your system. lol
Welcome to synthetic benchmarking in security... this is the case for everything.
No. The idea is that even if a keylogger slips by your defenses and isn't detected (even by zemana) you'll still be protected because of the security methods implemented. Unless I'm confusing it with other anti-keylogging software. The idea isn't necessarily to detect every piece of malware but it's to protect you regardless of whether it's detected or not.
