Running Program's Author Information is Not Verified.

This program may or may not be suspicious.
Although the program does state an author, it cannot be verified as the program has not been digitally signed.

All professional companies will digitally sign their programs as it is a way of officially proving that they are their creation and also protects them from unauthorized tampering.  Acquiring a digital certificate also means that the software company has been periodically vetted by an official certificate authority and is a small price to pay to reassure their customers.

Therefore a program that is not currently digitally signed is either:

  • A program that was not digitally signed by its creator.
  • A program that was originally digitally signed but has been later altered or tampered with.
Below shows the full list of possible conditions that can be reported regarding each running program's integrity:


As you use a particular program on your computer, there are usually numerous others, some of which stay invisible, that are also running.  Some may be simply waiting for an event to occur before performing an operation, while others may be actively using your computer's processing power.

Programs are components of the software products that have been installed on your computer and each product typically contains multiple programs.  Each of them will be designed to perform certain actions in order to provide some function to the computer or user.  These programs can be broken down into the following types:

  • System programs that silently run in the background in order to provide services to the computer or user.  Some of these have an additional program that actually performs relaying messages to the user.  Such as:
    • Antivirus software that scans programs and stored files for possible infections.
    • Updaters that occasionally check for new versions and fixes for installed software products.
    • Quick startup programs for providing a faster loading experience if you choose to use its product later.
    • Malware that monitors your activities and/or uses your computer's abilities to affect others.
  • User tool programs that mainly run in the background waiting to appear to inform the user of some information or ready to appear when requested by the user.  Such as:
    • Antivirus user interfaces waiting to inform you of status changes or allowing you access to its settings.
    • CyberFlair Healthy Hints for reminding you of when a break is due.
  • Engaging, interactive applications.  These tend to fill the whole of your screen.  Such as:
    • Web Browsers.
    • Office productivity software.
    • Games.
