boy, am I glad I installed this. Found 2 keyloggers, 4 trojans and 3 viruses hidden away in my ZIP folders (old software).

Had these in some cases for over 2 years so kaspersky, malwarebytes and windows defender had all failed to spot these! Luckily I havent run the EXE files for ages and had a clean win7 install a few weeks back. Quarantined these files of course.

Great bit of software.
