Report misleading

aswMBR is not your typical security application. In fact, it's not really considered a full-fledge security application at all. Think of aswMBR as an assistant for your current antivirus software. Its job is to make sure that your computer's security system isn't letting malicious programs slip by. For such a tiny program,aswMBR comes loaded with a bunch of features and benefits that will help any user.


  • Compatible with Avast Antivirus
  • Advanced Protection
  • Free add-on features
  • Write a new Master Boot Record.
  • Lightweight and fast
  • Powerful and efficient
  • Free to use

I want to go ahead and address the one thing I don't like about aswMBR, and that is the fact that it is not user friendly. Make no mistake about it. If you have no idea how antivirus software works, this program might leave you confused. Now, if you do have some idea as to how to work your system's security, then you are going to enjoy all that aswMBR has to offer. I am especially impressed with aswMBR's deep scan capabilities. If you've ever gotten a virus on your system and your security software can't seem to find it, aswMBR will be able to locate with its deep scan ability. Once it does that, it will direct your antivirus software to the virus so it can eliminate it for good.

Add on to the quality of your security programs instantly

aswMBR is also very good at preventing unwanted programs from making it on to your system too. Every now and then, websites will have small programs installed on our systems to monitor our actions. When these programs try to gain access aswMBR will detect it and alert you to the issue. I also like the fact that aswMBR is compatible with Avast antivirus; this is where aswMBR really shines because it's like an upgrade for the antivirus software. In my opinion, aswMBR is something everyone needs to have because our antivirus software isn't always enough to keep malicious programs off our computers. It's free to use, and there isn't any reason we shouldn't have it.

aswMBR protects the computer from unwanted activities. It is work with another antivirus software. If we install the application we can protect a computer. I am very satisfied in this application aswMBR for windows. This application scan the malware programs. If we don't want the application we can easily uninstall. This application gives moderate security for the computer .We cannot tell it fully secure the computer.
