Schoked

Hello, I am a very old Ccleaner user, and I have always been very satisfied with this application.
Last week I bought Ccleaner Pro Plus + Kamo.
After installing Kamo, I was shocked to find EKAG20NT.exe software in its directory intended to spy on my keyboard.
This application is an application from Avast, which I previously had on my PC, which also contained two spyware. I have since deleted any Avast application.
I must tell you that I am very shocked by this way of doing things, you are criminals selling computer protection containing spyware.
I will continue to use Ccleaner, but I will scan each update to see if you are installing s**t on my PC.
I will also report your culpable behavior on social media and computer forums.

Hello, Babaluc,

We're really happy to see an old CCleaner user take up our newest product, and we welcome your attention to detail. Customers like you who go the extra mile to scan the details of our work help ensure the safety of all of our users, and help make our products better.

However, I just wanted to clear out a misunderstanding. EKAG20NT.exe is not a keylogger as you imply (i.e. software that monitors and records your keystrokes), nor is it software by Avast.

It is an executable for the Eleckey license protection mechanism that protects our software from piracy: it is used to verify the authenticity of the activation codes we use to authenticate subscriptions on Kamo (which the Eleckey software treats as license keys). You can read more about the software here: https://www.sciensoft.com/products/eleckey/, and if you are still suspicious, you can run it via the Virus Total database to see that it is not malware.

While Eleckey is currently in use in Kamo, it has been causing us issues with our licensing system for some time, and we've been working on an alternative process to get to the same results. I can't give you a timeline on it, but it is slated to be removed in an upcoming version of Kamo.

Thank you for your prompt response. Indeed the total virus test is negative on ekag20nt.exe located in the Kamo directory. However, you should warn your customers that this version of the program is safe. Indeed, on the link https://www.file.net/process/ekag20nt.exe.html, this program is considered 42% dangerous. Other links received after Google search on this program consider it to be risky, and to watch out for, a link describing it as a keylogger.
You can understand that after my bad experience with Avast and especially with the Avast Antitrack Premium utility, there was reasons to wonder, Kamo strongly resembling Avast Antitrack Premium. Also knowing that your company has been taken over by Avast.

So I resinstall Kamo on my computer, and I'll use it with caution.

I come back to my first post, where I was shocked by the presence of suspicious software in Kamo's directory.
I come back to my criticism which was unfounded, and I apologize for my misinterpretation.
Kamo works mafnificantly and is very efficient in his surveillance work. I recommand it.

On behalf of forum users everywhere can I say thank you for that post.

We all make mistakes from time to time but it is rare on a forum to see people admit that they may have made a mistake.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
