    AppMaster and AppSync


    Found these two programs in startup on my sons computer...don't know if they are viruses and don't know if I should get rid of them and how. Tried searching internet but not finding exactly what it is.

    I was able to remove AppMaster...I guess it was tied to something called ZipCruncher. It looks like AppSync is also tied to that but I cannot get it off the computer.

    Got them both off, had to use Revo Free...One program was called ZipCruncher and another was called Mennythanks...

    Doesn't sound like good stuff.

    Can't tell if ZipCruncher is legit or not, but something about it does seem off. From what I can tell Mennythanks, however, is DEFINITELY trouble, and is qualified as browser redirect, browser hijack, and adware source at various malware tracking sites and even in an answers.microsoft.com thread. Sounds like you were right to get rid of them. What are you using for Malware protection? Have you run a scan recently? You might want to try the Malwarebytes or Trend Micro Housecall scanners to see if they detect anything.

    It looked like to me that ZipCruncher was a cover for Mennythanks...it was a mess

    I use Avast, & Malwarebytes

    If Malwarebytes isn't turning anything up, you're probably out of danger. You'll want to keep a close eye on your system and look for anything out of the ordinary for a while, though. All's well that ends well, right?
    Best wishes,
