Welcome to our file information site, one of the leading venues for discussions about Windows files since 2005. Our database contains information and ratings for thousands of files. The accuracy of the information presented here is ensured by our research center, the contributions of industry professionals, and a moderated forum.
How Files Are Scored
Files are evaluated through a technical analysis that focuses on such properties as embedded hidden functions (e.g. keystroke monitoring, launch through autostart, browser monitoring or manipulation) and the type of process (e.g. visible window, system tray icon, DLL, IE plugin, service, etc.). The resulting security score indicates the relative likelihood that the process is malware, spyware, a Trojan, or a keylogger.
