    Hi :)

    What, if anything, is the official relationship of Zemana Anti Malware to the Watchdog Anti-Malware Product being sold on Amazon.com ,and given that it now has a real time component is the claim that it is compatible and won't interfere with your current A/V still Valid?

    I see that it's application file is named: ZAM.exe.

    Will it be updated to the current Zemana Beta when released as final?

    Is Zemana going to set up a forum soon for their products? If so, will we be able to report samples there?

    It seems Watchdog is updated with a delay:

    That build was released at 28.12.2015.

    Edit: I have just installed that version - it immediately updated to the last one. It seems they don't provide the latest installer on their website directly, but the app itself is kept up-to-date.

    Does Zemana treats every Chrome Startup Url as suspicious? I can assure you that GeeksToGo is a legitimate website.

    According to my daily experience: Yes

    Default setting in Chrome is new tab, that is way more practical.
    The possibility to set a default page may be a concession to past days.

    In almost all cases I got a warning about changed default setting in any of the three common browsers, I was done by adware, or browser hijackers.

    It's up to You, to repair, or ignore the warning.

    Zemana found this to be suspicious... can someone confirm it's safe because I just re-installed windows.

    Hello again,

    Since ZAM finds it suspicious, we recommend you delete it.

    Did you install Destroy Windows 10 Spying on your system?

    From what I can find, that key/certificate is related to it. Looks like a FP to me.

    @Overkill:
    Obviously that questionable certificate came in with "Destroy WIN10 Spying"...
    Good to know, that ZAM caught it.

    Hhm..., whom do You trust more? Microsoft, or the makers of that tool?

    Did You check with RCC? http://trax.x10.mx/dl_rcc.php?appname=RCC.exe

    I would not thrust that certificate, nor would I remove it, without further investigation.

    In doubt, I would remove it and the whole WIN10 anti-spying stuff.

    You can always set privacy setting manuell.
    If MS want's, they can bypass all attempts, to stop spying.
    In doubt, just don't use Windows at all.

    You may trust anti-spying stuff, or not... That's up to You.

    @Overkill : No problem!
    @Hiltihome : I doubt that an open-source application that have its source code available on github would actually install a malicious certificate on a system...

    https://github.com/Nummer/Destroy-Windows-10-Spying/releases

    In my eyes, that certificate is legitimate and I can see how it can be used. You are free to review the source code of the program however and come up with your own conclusions.

    I'm assuming this is another false positive?
