Description is inaccurate. AVZ is more of diagnostics and manual cleanup tool, rather than usual antivirus scanner.

It has own engine and it's Kaspersky engine that uses some of its parts, not the other way. Databases are different as well.

Overall this is great tool but for advanced usage, it doesn't work like launch and forget.

Is there an English text Web page?

@Stanley

Nope, official pages are in Russian only as far as I know. AVZ itself does have English interface if run on Windows with non-Russian locale.

AVZ put a file called "utmyntkw.sys" in c:\windows\system32\driver.
Panda tells me that this files has the rootkit/bagle.uv in it.

The help file won't open in Vista (old .hlp file) and the "words" on the GUI only appear as numbers and symbols. Had to have Google translate the website but no mention of it works on Vista.

Spybot (Tea timer) see this program as Dropper.4Maximus and terminate process. Earlier version didn't have this problem

Extremely Useful Tool!
It's not only a Malware Scanner, but much more than that :)

i.e. "hosts" file manager, Startup Entries manager, etc.

@ Rarst

how do you know Kaspersky uses AVZ's engine? if this is true, then AVZ is legit :)
