I'm only posting here because Iolo doesn't have a forum and Zone Labs are packaging this with ZA, and so:
I bought the double package a few days ago since it seemed lke a good solid deal.
However, this part is hilarious:
Iolo scans the system for problems regularly and it reports that these are viruses:
Wrongly Listed As ShopNav Malware:
Symantec say: "it is a confirmed false-positive and the iun6002.exe file is not a virus." 06-09-2003 (5 years ago).
Wrongly Listed As TrustInBar browser helper object:
Wrongly Listed As CasinoClient adware:
C:\Documents and Settings\Ian\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Music\cas\settings
C:\Documents and Settings\Ian\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Music\cas
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Lights\cas\casNeighborhoodPose.txt
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Lights\cas\casStudio.txt
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Lights\cas
Simply ridiculous. Anyone who knows Sims 2 files will laugh at this one.
Wrongly Listed As DSrch adware:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Tracktion 3\VST Plugins\Mackie Plug-ins\dsr.dll
What is particularly funny is that these files are being wrongly identified as virii because of their file names and NOT their actual code.
Having an app compare a database of filenames *does not a virus scan make*.
Iolo also regualrly tells me I have no AV or Firewall installed (I do - ZA).
Now, if I chose to disnfect all of these, what would happen is that these programs would fail:
This kind of makes me think twice now before allowing this app to make repairs to my registry...
