When run, this program copies itself as HOOKDUMP.EXE file to Windows System folder and then creates a startup key for that file in the Registry:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "Intel system tool"="%WinSysDir%\hookdump.exe"
where %WinSysDir% represents Windows System folder name. Then the program extracts and HTML file called SCREEN.HTML and puts it on Windows Desktop. As a result the desktop will look like that:
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
Note: If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.
In addition the program creates an icon in System Tray and periodically displays a popup there:
All the claims that the program does using the webpage and a popup are false and are only aimed to make a user click on "Removal Instructions" link. The link points to the www.antivirus-gold.com website.
