let alone the rest, i still have the heavy ram usage problem. from what i see in processhacker it consumes rougly 200mb commit and 350mb physical ram, i made a thread here few months back and it still hasnt been fixed yet, anyway i hardly use zemana as my 2nd scanner like i used too. also wont be renewing my license nor buying their new upcoming zemana ultimate product, until i see better improvements on their current products.

I agree. I'm moving on to other products now. Or just Trend since Trend now effectively covers ransomware and Version 12 will have machine learning.

Zemana offered a refund. When I gave them my keys they ignored 14 of my keys and refunded 1 key.. What good is that? If you offer a refund then after say 'just one will be refunded' I'm thinking.. Say what? I'm attempting to at the least - get a pro-rated refund on time used. We'll see how they respond about that but at this point any money back from them is money in my pocket for a product I don't have confidence in any longer.

I'll be skipping their future products.

I'm not sure Zemana scans JAR files as well.. <sigh>

My test machine had a piece of JAR malware on it. Zemana didn't see it. I executed it. Zemana didn't catch it. I installed Emsisoft on the test machine and Emsisoft immediately caught it and quarantined it..

I know all of this is anecdotal, but sheesh.. I used to really be impressed with Zemana.

I'm coming back to this thread since i missed reading @Slyguy last few posts before, and just read them.
Then i went hunting for some tests where any Zemana product was tested (ZAM or ZAL) @ MRG-Effitas (only searched tests done by MRG right now, I know its better to look at tests from multiple different testers/sources, but it was easier to just search at MRG first for now...)

Even though it was just based on tests by MRG, already a trend started to emerge that was similar to the OP's thread title...

WOW!

From looking those over, there has been a significant decline in the performance of Zemana...

I've actually stopped using it since posting this thread. I contacted Zemana and asked them if they would weigh in on this thread and they declined and instead offered me a partial refund to 'go away'.. Not much money but it makes me feel less ripped off by them. I see no real need to use them any longer for me personally on my home systems.

I have a lifetime license, but i'm not using it. I've lost my faith in performance and trust of this company. I have a lot of problems even for uninstalling it, leaving some files that finally i could remove with these instructions:
Q&A - Uninstalling Zemana leaves Drivers behind?
Wow... it's too bad Zemana went downhill for some people.
In my case, two months ago, Zemana was the only one to detect and clean a fileless malware and two other malwares that were badly impacting my laptop. I was so grateful that I even purchased a license for ZAL.
I've also checked the URL. Thank you. Too bad the uninstall wasn't successful. I will be cautious and be alert when the time to uninstall Zemana comes.

Never trusted Zemana. It will be always in my TOP CRAP lists.

Please don't. A couple of malware packs and a week are not enough proof to indicate a product is not good...
I agree. However, lastly i have some problems with cloud engine (doesn't work) and i don't understand why still Zemana doesn't provide a real uninstaller. Actually, i only use Emsisoft Internet Security and Hitman Pro and Norton Power Eraser as second opinion
