Editors' review

aswMBR is a utility program designed to work in conjunction with other antivirus software to keep your computer safe from malware and other unwanted programs. It can complete thorough scans for rootkits associated with malware programs and remove them when a conventional uninstaller or antivirus cannot.

Pros

Quick and efficient: This program scans and performs repairs quickly. There are no fancy features involved, but you also don't have to tie up your computer for long periods of time to rid it of unwanted programs.

Avast antivirus compatibility: While aswMBR is not a complete antivirus program, it is made to work with Avast Free Antivirus, which you have to download and install separately. Together, they comprise a complete solution to your system protection needs.

Cons

Not for beginners: This program does not come with a Help feature, and the interface is as utilitarian as they come. If you don't already know your way around this type of tool or know how to interpret the scan results, this program won't be of much use to you.

Bottom Line

If you have some advanced computer knowledge and want to make sure your machine is free from all elements of malware programs, this is a good choice. It's free, and it does exactly what it promises. But it was not designed to be a one-stop solution for your antivirus needs. It's also not terribly accessible for inexperienced users.
