My HitmanPro 3.7.14 detected ZAM.exe to be a trojan, is this true or is it a false positive?

Also seen elsewhere. A false positive.

You can report issues, ask questions and make suggestions in this official HitmanPro support topic where the developer provides assistance.

For Zemana, links are provided in B.C. Download area, but personally I would think a False Positive if Zemana and Hitman Pro are being used together.

 

Legit program Bleeping Computer Download or Zemana Download Uninstall Zemana and rescan.

Hi all!

 

FWIW, I have HitmanPro.Alert 3.5.3 build 562 and just tried ZAM, which work perfectly together (did not try the real-time protection though, since I used it as an on demand scanner only). :whistle:

 

Thank you!

 

Regards,

HitmanPro.Alert is a security tool that checks browser integrity and alerts users when malware has intruded the browser. HitmanPro.Alert runs as a service and warns if the browser has been compromised and is unsafe to use for online banking or shopping. The alert will not block the malware itself from installing since HMP.Alert by itself is not designed to be an anti-virus or anti-malware tool.

Hi, quietman7!

 

Thank you for the heads-up on HMP.A, however I know that it is an anti-exploit and anti-ransomware tool. :thumbup2:

 

Furthermore, what I indicated by the phrase "work perfectly together", is that a couple of weeks ago I tried to install ZAM, but its installation program throwed the following error message: "We've encountered a problem and need to quit the installation. Do you want to send an error report?" But now as HMP.A has whitelisted the FP, the installation went smoothly, even though HMP.A at that time silently blocked ZAM unlike HMP now did for the OP.

 

Thank you!

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

No problem. I figured you knew but clarified for others reading this topic.
