    Default klif.sys flagged by Prevx after install of ZA

    I just downloaded and installed the latest ZA to update my existing install. On reboot, Prevx says it blocked klif.sys in /system32/drivers/. i searched the net and there was no clear answer. Many thought it was part of Kaspersky anti-virus (which I believe ZA uses). The majority seemed to view it as a dangerous/hostile file. None of the file sizes matched what is installed in my machine.

    Is it from ZA. Is it definitely OK. What should the file size be.

    Without being able to sit in front of you PC, its difficult for anyone to help without more detailed information about your configuration.

    Which ZA product do you have - Extreme, Security Suite, Pro, Anti-virus, and what is the version number?

    What OS are you running - WinXP, Vista, Win7 (32-bit or 64-bit), what Service Pack level?

    Do you have any other a-v/a-s, firewall, malware, etc. software installed on your PC?

    I have ZASS installed (see full version info below & PC info in my sig) and I do have the kilf.sys file in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers folder. It is a digitally signed Kaspersky Lab file. The exact size is 317,072 bytes.

    Check the properties of the file on your PC to compare.


    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:9.1.008.000
    TrueVector version:9.1.008.000
    Driver version:9.1.008.000
    Anti-virus engine version:8.0.2.42
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:1009361152
    AntiSpam version:6.0.0.2383

    Yes, it is from ZA. The file is legit and you should notify prevx of the false positive.
