    Default [SOLVED] Suspicious behavior - Launcher.exe and C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe

    Hi, I get a pop up with the following Suspicious Behavior message every time I boot: Launcher is trying to launch C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe, or use another program to gain access to privileged resources. Do any of you know what this is? I've been denying it each time to be on the safe side, but I'd like to get rid of it (and it pops up with every boot even though the "remember this setting" box is checked). Thanks for your help. M

    Hi!

    whenever posting in a user forum you should try to give minumum information of your setup. Right click the ZA icon near the clock, about, copy to clipboard, paste it here. Also mention your OS version and SP/patch. Explain which other security tool you are using and any other information you deem useful.

    More information your put more likely other users here will be able to help.

    Thanks,

    I guess its only missing the exact message you receive that you should be able to copy from the logs. Thanks

    Now you need to check where this launcher comes from. Which application? System? Other software? Not using that old version of ZA so I cannot help but others users may be still on ZA 10.
