Greetings all! I have always used your site as my goto for answers to all things malware, but I have recently run across a program I'm not sure about: VideoMakerFX. I have yet to sandbox this thing, but I was wondering if anyone had experience with it. Google searches turn up video after video of people claiming to make money off the internet. Any reviews posted are fake pitches for the program and it's website it seems. A search for a eula turns up garbage. It seems they have hijacked Google searches in their favor from what I can tell. Now the reason I ask this is that I have run across a computer suffering from popups and tabs opening on their own, and after cleaning it the only program installed I cannot account for is this VideoMakerFX. Would someone enlighten me on this thing? Is it a scam? Is it malware? Or is it legit (don't think so personally).

file analysis of videomakerfx.exe

The software appears legit...the VideoMakerFX website includes links at the bottom for terms of use - disclaimer - privacy policy - support.

I also found this user discussion topic for VideoMakerFX.

I also bought this software (VideomakerFX) and immediately noticed poor performance of my computer, I was using Bitdefender Internet Security 2015 and did not detect anything, but guess what, I DOWNLOAD AVG Free version and I detected two Trojans.

The biggest problem is that this software was sold to 30,000 people 
 
I do not know to proceed in this case?

Anytime you come across a suspicious file, a possible false positive or you want a second opinion, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:--In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.

Submitting file samples to the anti-virus vendor for further analysis allows the lab Techs to quickly investigate and confirm if the detection is actually malware. Some security programs have built-in options for submitting a file directly from the quarantined area to the vendor's lab for analysis. Most user guides will explain how to do that. Other anti-virus solutions automatically submit files or provide an alert to do so if you have checked the option to "Submit for analysis in the program's settings. If those options are unavailable, most anti-virus vendors have instructions for sample file submissions posted on their web sites. You should also contact and advise the program vendor that one of their files is being detected as a threat. In many cases they will work with the anti-virus Techs in an attempt to resolve the detection.

For submission to a specific anti-virus vendor, please see:

I understand that I must follow the procedures, but the executable size is 124MB, and most the maximum size for analysis (provided pages) is 64mb How do I analyze? How? 
 
The program has viruses, I'm sure, I do not know how they did it 
 
I guess this is like AIDS, you must learn to live with it. 
 
I offer the program along with the password to anyone who wants to try it. Maybe you quietman7?

I don't use the program and was not aware it was that large. You should contact your anti-virus vendor and ask them for instructions when dealing with a file 124MB in size.
