Hi all,

So recently I ran a scan with Zemana anti malware to check my system, and what I got was quite surprising to me.

As you can see Zemana picks up Avast Webrep as a PUA, the thing is I cannot confirm that it is in fact a PUA because when I go to the folder itself there is not specific item detected as the PUA but rather it was the entire folder that was flagged as the PUA as seen on Zemana.

Anyone can advise on how I can take further steps to analyse the problem? My gut tells me that this is most likely a FP but when I google the detection I can't seem to find which engine from zemana detects this.

I have already sent a big chunk of the folder up on VT and the results all came back clean.

You cannot select which engines to use, but it will either be a false positive or bear in mind that anti-virus companies don't want you using other anti-virus companies software, I can assure you anything which is avast! is safe.
