While searching the Internet for new anti-malware tools to try, I stumbled upon ProtectU, which is featured at thewindowsclub.com, here: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/protectu-malware-detection-software
Upon installation, the app appeared in SysTray as a real-time process looking like a padlock, and had only one option to open up the GUI, which seemed legitimate and relatively simple.
There was an option to scan the system for malware, which already had been automatically run, however another scan was available on demand.
So I scanned my system, which went rather quickly, but as it found no malware, I thought that I could uninstall it, which albeit went successfully. So far so good, however;
Even after uninstallation, four processes belonging to the said app were still continously running, just like before the uninstallation.
And as such, I had to resort to system restore to get rid of it. Good riddance! Luckily I have the habit of backing up my registry with WR (AiO) and creating a restore point before trying new software - just in case.
Hence, my question is as follows: ProtectU - is this anti-malware or malware?
Thank you very much in advance!
