MBAM vs Advanced System Optimizer


Recommended Posts

Hi.

I 've recently purchaged and installed the Advanced System Optimizer. My MBAM detects it as malware (detected 11 folfers and 314 files). Example: C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Systweak\Advanced System Protector\Logs

                         C:\ProgramData\Systweak\Advanced System Protector\signatures (PUP.Optional.AdvancedSystemProtector.A)

                        C:\ProgramData\Systweak\Advanced System Protector\signatures\completedatabase.db

                         C:\ProgramData\Systweak\Advanced System Protector\updates\1240update.zip

                          etc, etc, etc.

Is there any problem or, simply, MBAM "considers" Advanced System Optimizer as a malware?

What can I do?

Thank you.

PS. Advanced System Protector is a part of Advanced System Optimizer.

PUP.Optional.AdvancedSystemProtector.A
 
That isn't a malware detection per se, it is for Potentially Unwanted Programs which Systweak is know to produce and foist.  It isn't malicious but Systweak produces snake oil software such as Systweak Registry Cleaner.  While most software in this class sneak into one's computer through bundling other software with an installer of an application you actually want, in your case, you actually bought it.
