    Default Keylogger alert ---> AAvast's ashServ.exe ??

    Dear Forum,

    Why did ZoneAlarm suddenly provide a keylogger warning (refer below) about ashServ.exe?

    I have not seen this message before and am a little worried!

    Thanks in advance!

    You are getting that ZA Warning, because the A vast listing in Program Control may have "X" or "?" permission.. and not Green Check mars for Access level..Check your ZA Program Control/Program section and look down the list for 'A Vast" and make sure it has been given Super Trusted level and Trusted & Internet Access permission..
