It "touches windows files" .....creepy stuff.Reverse.it analyses:
It is trying to read your browser history, too.
I don`t have the time or I would test it, for kicks.It is just a UI with a word "Scanning your PC.. please wait!"
Try eicar test
Could be the same. If you check the install/update log of Secure AV 360, you'll see a similar URL.Notice anything similar with this product? I found this product a few months back and I couldn't remember the name, but I recognised the UI layout... So I booted into the VM and used a snapshot to find the product:
I'm not even going to try and believe you just said this but let's both agree to disagree and leave it at that... I can't even tell if you are a troll or are genuinely being serious.I just installed this, and confirm it the same as Shield Antivirus, but with a different UI. It's using Avira definitions, so it's not a fake antivirus. I was not able to run a scan becuase it said my trial had expired. I installed Shield Antivirus as well, but had the same issue. However, it's quite possible that I have tried this, Shield Antivirus or another rebrand sometime in the last 18 months, since I did a clean install of Windows.
It's worth noting that it's very rare to encounter fake antiviruses anymore. Unknown antivirus are usually using Bitdefender's signatures, or occasionally Avira. Also, I should point out too that amongst any PUPs or other unwanted software these days, there are virtually no "fakes". In pretty much all cases, if you register the software you get a full working version (even though often such software is not worth buying).
Roger_m a troll really ? Come, come, surely you jest sir ?I'm not even going to try and believe you just said this but let's both agree to disagree and leave it at that... I can't even tell if you are a troll or are genuinely being serious.

Roger has been testing all sorts of obscure AV`s constantly over the years and if he says it`s legit then it`s legit.

Comodo are idiots, @roger_m has performed some analysis and he is telling us it is safe, 100% reliable, completely. No doubt about it.Comodo now detects it
A number of years ago, there were plenty of rogue/fake antiviruses, which would always say that your system was infected - even if it was clean, to encourage people to buy the full version. However, these days, such rogues are few and far between.Don`t think anyone suggested that you were wrong Wave but that only that these fakey type crappo programs are using real sigs instead of just graphics.
Anyway you could do worse than avira sigs.
Malware Lab's Rogue Gallery | LavasoftA number of years ago, there were plenty of rogue/fake antiviruses, which would always say that your system was infected - even if it was clean, to encourage people to buy the full version. However, these days, such rogues are few and far between.
What is reasonably common these days however, is antiviruses such as this one, which come from unknown pubishers, which actually use Bitdefender, Avira or Vipre signatures. Due to them using legitimate signatures, they will only identify actual threats rather than providing fake scan results. Often these products aren't very good. More often than not, they will have a very basic user interface, with limited options. Also, they typically won't have any proactive protection. Another bad point, is that sometimes they have an extremely high price which is much higher than the price of well known and trusted antiviruses. But, the reality is that they will detect viruses, and also remove them too, if you buy the product, and won't harm your system.
@Wave if you were to actually test any of these antiviruses, rather than making assumptions, you would see that what I say is true. I hope you realise that many things detected by antiviruses these days are deteted on the basis of them being "uwanted programs" rather than acutally being threats. These unwanted programs are more often than not safe, but are typically detected because they come as unwanted bundled extras with other software.
