  1. Some may find this informative: https://www.mrg-effitas.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Zemana_ransomware_detection.pdf
  2. - that's a very good reason to use it -- I found a post that claims: Malwarebytes 2.2.1 will stop being supported on June 8th of this year, after which the program won't receive any updates. https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/195411-malwarebytes-version-2/ So it looks like soon we'll have to live with Malwarebytes 3 - i.e. if we wish to use Malwarebytes that is!
  3. Actually, I've found the same thing mta I'm sure there is some weird program out there somewhere that doesn't.
  4. After you mentioned it in an earlier post in this thread, I added it to a list for me to check out (which I haven't done yet). You had mentioned that it has rare updates. Are you referring to program updates or definitions? The latest OS mentioned on the relevant Trend Micro webpage is Windows 7. Would you happen to know if it can handle Windows 10?
  5. - I agree - You and ROCKNROLL are so right. In the words of hazelnut: "Standalone, up to date, anti rootkit programs are now as rare as hens teeth". IMO, this is too bad.
  6. You are so right Andavari. I have never thought of SAS as only a spyware scanner. To be very honest, in my mind I've always substituted the "Spy" in SAS to "Mal", thus SAM in my mind.
  7. - I knew about that in Avast, but I am looking for a stand-alone on-demand scanner. - most on that list run on old windows systems - i.e. were designed a long time ago. However, I guess some may function fine on more recent OS.
  8. - Yup! I have it enabled on mine. - thanks for the info on TMRB and the tip regarding the left over driver.
  9. - You are so right. I was just hoping to find a couple of stand-alone anti-rootkits. -
  10. - I know I checked! - Sadly, I'm afraid you're right. It sure would be handy sometimes to have a stand-alone tool.
  11. I'm in the process of developing a new version of my program. Within my program I would like to provide 2 or 3 links to anti-rootkit programs. I'm including TDSSKiller (by Kaspersky) so I need one or two more good choices. Your recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
  12. You should send the guy that posted that a virtual coffee & donut.
  13. Excellent point Andavari - why would they! Perhaps Zemana support hasn't grasped the situation correctly.
  14. I would contact Zemana support again and ask if there is a specific reason that they want you to use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility as opposed to the replacement software, Microsoft Fix It. If they say you could use either one, then I would use the updated software. Keep in mind that apparently Windows Fix It does not work on OS prior to Windows 7. So if you are using XP, then you would have to use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. Hope this helps.
  15. Nothing wrong with Malwarebytes, it's a very popular program. Many will advise, including myself, that it's good practice to use a few scanners for on-demand scans. Personally I use ZAM for real time protection and then I use Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware once a week for performing an on-demand scan. Anyway, sorry for getting off topic here. I know your post was regarding trying to uninstall ZAM. Let us know how you make out when you run the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.
  16. Just curious: prior to uninstalling ZAM, were you using the paid version (i.e. real-time protection) or did you just use it for on-demand scans? I guess what I'm getting at is why you want to uninstall ZAM. I'm running real-time protection and find it excellent.
  17. nukecad, you should post this trick you discovered on the Firefox Forum (assuming they still have one, I believe they used to have a forum). I bet a lot of users don't know this trick.
  18. jorb, if you find that you still can't do a complete uninstall, one thing you could do is disable the ZAM controller service. This will prevent it from running. To open the services window, type "run" in windows search and then click on "Run desktop app". When the Run window opens, type in "services.msc" and then right-click on "ZAM controller service" (located at the bottom when the list is in alphabetic order). Click on "disable". The CCleaner pros would know better than I, but I would imagine it would be safe for you to run the registry cleaner option within CCleaner and delete anything that refers to Zemana Anti-Malware. For any future uninstall, it's a good idea to first terminate the program you will be deleting and then I personally would use Revo Uninstaller for the uninstall. It does a great job. One last thought: By any chance, would you have a restore point that was created prior to when you installed ZAM?
  19. I know absolutely zero about any "i" product. I know there seems to be fierce competition between iOS and Android OS. I have no idea which is actually the best way to go. Currently my wife has a Samsung tablet (which, as you likely know, runs Android) that her sister gave her - so it's only recently that I've become slightly familiar with the Android OS.
  20. It's getting harder and harder these days to know what is trustworthy.
  21. You may want to check if you've dowmloaded any of those 50 apps. http://www.komando.com/happening-now/398590/malicious-apps-infecting-millions-of-smartphones-and-tablets?utm_medium=nl&utm_source=notd&utm_content=2017-04-26-article-c
  22. @ jorb: just something you may wish to think about - keep Zemana Anti-Malware for on-demand scans.
  23. In Chrome you right-click on the tab and then click Duplicate.
