    It appears to be the real malware, Not a False Positive.

    BHO/CLSID/Toolbar Deep Dive
    Field Value
    GUID {A2B7A0F0-B697-4A71-8D91-43443F57D7BB}
    Filename estAlive.dll
    Object Name estAliveObj Class
    Status X BHO
    Description AskYaya aka Estalive adware
    Viewed 411 times since 23 May 2005, 1840 Hours UTC-4.



    "X" - Certified spyware/foistware, or other malware
    "L" - Legitimate items
    "O" - Open to debate
    "?" - Unknown Status
    "BHO" - Browser Helper Object
    "TB" - Toolbar

    Please look at the details about AskYaya

    And look at the details about EstAlive

    Do a search for this using {A2B7A0F0-B697-4A71-8D91-43443F57D7BB} in the Find of the registry and delete them manually. The CLSID sections of the registry are a common hiding places for these types of malware. After deleting the estAlive.dll and the slew of the other related .dlls and any .exes, try using the CCleaner to help remove some of the leftovers...

    An excellent reg cleaner that does covers the CLSID area of the registry is the Abexo Free Registry Cleaner.

    Hope this helps

    I checked CA info you provided link to, nothing they have on their website was in my registry. I searched for all the reg hits CA defines as being part of 'win32.askyaya'.

    I've used the reg cleaner as you suggested, askyaya still pops up after deleting in ZA Pro adware remover.

    Payed good money for ZA Pro, what gives with this?

    I guess you are the only person in the world to have a false positive??? What gives is no scanner is perfect or ideal.

    I suppose you have set this in the exceptions of the scanner?

    I suppose you have reported this issue to Zone Labs?

    I suppose complaining will work and not reporting this to Zone Labs instead will fix the issue?

    I suppose you realize that this is a ZA users forum only and not an official Zone Labs forum. Hey we are not employees, just users as you are.

    Best regards.

    Thanks for your help

    I tracked it down to "Advanced Window Care" as the one putting it in.

    I deleted the program and all associated with it then rebooted, did a ZA spy check, not found.
    I rebooted a couple times, switching off all power, waiting a few minutes for anything in memory to go.
    I then checked again going online and still no sign of it.

    I then Installed Advanced Windows Care Personal and Walla it was back again. I left it in and did a couple reboots, still there so have now deleted it off my system and will leave it off.
    After may checks it is not being found by ZA spyware or for that matter with a manual search.

    I have taken up your offer and d/l it for future use

    I had the same recurring problem whether I was deleting the key manually
    or via the ZA scan option.
    I did notice that each time, SpyDoctor which I have running in the background, issued a popup msg abt an ActiveX control being immunised.
    I created a restore point and the uninstalled SpyDoctor and the problem seems to have been sorted out.
    Don't understand enough to know whether SpyDoctor was somehow responsible for the problem or preventing the cure, but if you're still tearing your hair out over this, consider uninstalling what other antispyware you have running, before attempting to delete the offending key.
