    Default W32/Spybot.EAYW

    during safe mode malware scanning I carry our weekly witn Norman Cleaner, discovered
    W32/Spybot.EAYW in C:\programs\CheckPoint\ZAForceField\Plugins\ISWSHE X.dll
    (version 1.15.36.15), not discovered by ZAExtreme 9.0.114.000.
    W32/Spybot.EAYW also unknown to ZA viruscenter....
    What to do i.e. how to proceed ?
    Thank You in advance !

    sure we are speaking about a false positive ? the last X in the .dll looks strange...

    do you know if is ISWSHE X.dll is an up to date component of last ZAExtreme
    OR a component of the old ForceField ?
    i.e. since Norman has cancelled such .dll what have I to do ? I have a trouble if without it ZAExtreme is still OK or not....(i.e. do You have it ?)
    Thanks again

    Hi!
    are you running ZA Extreme and Norman at the same time?
    This can cause problems and conflicts behind the scene. Either choose Norman or ZAX. Running both will actually reduce your security instead of increasing it.

    Moreover that scanner is not known for its strong malware detection. If you really need a second opinion you should use other complementary tools such as the free MBAM or the free Superantispyware. If you want to keep your other antivirus then remove ZAX.

    The name of file(s) will tell NOTHING of the malicious nature of the file(s). Upload the file to virustotal.com and check by actually scanning the file!

    absolutely not ! I have sufficient experience with ZA after about 6 or 7 years to rely on it only. Only once a week i chek in safe mode with Norman OR mbam and then I disinstall them.
    However please check, if possible, if above mentioned .dll is a component of ZAExtreme OR a component of the old ForceField.
    Thank You in advance for Your kind cooperation !

    Hi!
    I am sorry but it seems you have missed one part of my message "The name of file(s) will tell NOTHING of the malicious nature of the file(s). Upload the file to virustotal.com and check by actually scanning the file!"

    Files installed may be different according to the system is installed to. You do not post any detail about your system thus I am asking you to upload the file to www.virustotal.com. This is the safest way to check files for malware.

    Security tools installing and removing will pollute your system with left overs. Less you mess up around security tools better it is for your system. You do not need to remove MBAM free from the system. There are no active components (only in the free). On the other end security tools can conflict with ZA even if disabled. No use to crash the system if you don't need to.
