Hi! I have a scanner connected to my PC. Occasionally (about once every 15 times), the scanner's software (MP Navigator EX) would start up when I started my computer.
I removed this program from my list of start up programs (via Windows defender), and
haven't seen it started at startup since.
I updated my ZA to the latest version yesterday, and when I restarted my computer, this program started itself, and did a scan as well.
I doubled checked that this program is not present on my list of start up programs (via Windows defender -> Tools -> Software Explorer -> Start up).
Does it sound like a malware issue?
I scanned my machine with a number of Anti-malware programs (AVG, Spybot, Malwarebyte's, SuperAntispyware) and nothing has been reported.
I cannot recall the version of my ZA (I am not at home now), but I used the ZA update option to get the latest version.
Many thanks for your help!
