"Is this malware / spyware?"
None so far
- Managed to shut down ZoneAlarm Twice
- Takes up huge Virtual Memory (1Gb)
- Did not work
I had a 250MB video file (wmv). It woud play in Winamp, but I could not jump into any position in the file (I think there was a problem with the timecode...).
So I downloaded this program and ran it. It seems to be in a endless loop stuck at 129MB during conversion. The program is taking up 1Gb of virtual memor (though only 7MB of physical memoty). I have no idea what it is doing.
Of major concern, is that it managed to shut down ZoneAlarm twice (Although ZoneAlarm restart, but it of concern that my anti-virus security software was shutdown and Video program was running and free to do anything).
Also, ZoneAlarmg ave a warning message to say that I had changed the date/time backwards. I did no such thing. And perhaps this software was trying to fool ZoneAlarm that I did not have a valid license and making it shut down? (i.e. people sometimes turn the clock back if software licence has expired). I have no idea why it would think that as I have a 2 year license to ZoneAlarm Securty Sofware.
I advise people to be caution and not to install this program.
Also, the executable is RepairVideo.exe from www.repairvideo.com (I think there is another program on Download.com with the same name?).
I am very worried.... ZoneAlarm is running a full scan has has been running for 8 minutes and it was not even scanned single file!!
In any case install at your own risk. May be there is a genuine reason for all of this behaviour?.
