I don't know about Watchdog's version doing that, but I found that the one in iolo's System Mechanic "Ultimate Defense" did it all the time, when I had both it and Zemana installed together. Very annoying!
They (iolo/Real Defense LLC) call their version "Malware Killer"

Hey @Mops21

I missed this one (idk how, sorry about that.)

Anyways, the site was just temporarily down at the moment you were visiting it, so that was a real quick fix.

Starting from our latest 4.1.89 version we are using WAMSDK folder so that we don't interfere with any preinstalled folders there.

Cheers.

Hey @Mops21

That's strange, we'll look into that.

As for the WAV roadmap, the very essence would be like this:

1) Internal Beta testing - we're already in this stage, working close to having a public beta ready
2) Public Beta release - the target is 2-3 weeks to release only to the beta testing group, more info on that will be in a separate thread when we're ready
3) 1st stable release - after the bug fixing and implementation of improvements on the MVP for WAV

Keep in mind we're not a big group of developers working on the project but we have a tendency to grow.

Hope this was sufficient

Hi! It took a long time, but it's better than never :) We have tested the Watchdog Anti-Malware software on more than 100 samples. However this is a small set, so the result should not be compared to Advanced In The Wild Malware Test.

I provide a database dump and one sample terminal output, as well as the Sysmon log with the detected Watchdog quarantine path indicator.

In total detected 100% samples as Level 3 (after execute).
