    Hi ! New on this forum, I also have a problem with "ZAM.krnl.trace", and "ZAM_Guard.krnl.trace" which appear in c:\Windows ! I have NEVER installed Zemana (never heard of it before) ! I tried to use CCleaner,Regcleaner, Malwarebytes, Adware Removal, Spybot-S&D, AdwCleaner and jv16 Power Tools, but the two "ZAMxxx" files keep reappearing and reset themselves every 2 minutes, or so ! I even deleted all "ZAM*.* as well as ZEMANA*.* from the register, and rebooted my PC (Win 7), but nothing works ! What can I do to get rid of these things ? Pleeease help...

    Maybe you can find some useful info also here, but how do you have these files if you've never used Zemana? :oops:

    Hi ! THAT'S also a problem ! I had never heard of Zemana before I found thesse ZAMxxx files ! Hence I guess it entered my PC with some funky stuff I have downloaded/installed !
    ...but, I just re-re-checked, and it seems that I have no more ZAM files in c:\windows ! My manual clean-up seem to havec worked !
    Thanks anyway for the help and tips :) !
    Best regards...
