In my constant search for new software, I just discovered this.new antivirus from Systweak. Systweak is not a trustworthy company and has been linked to tech support scams, but nonetheless I like trying new software, and none of their software is actually malicious. Their other software includes Advanced System Protector, anti-malware software which has major issues with deliberate false positives. This is Systweak's first antivirus, but Innovana Thinklabs, a company that has close ties with Systweak, publishes ITL Total Security, which also uses Avira signatures.

I find it interesting that for the last few years, just about any antivirus published by an untrustworthy company, uses Avira signatures.


Here is an article about their tech support scams. Also if you do a Google search for Systweak tech support scam, you will find lots more information, including YouTube videos.

Here are some screenshots. There is nothing remarkable, but it does include some kind of exploit protection.

Another scam company with the avira engine, what are they doing over there at Avira?
I also noticed:

"Protection Actions"
Quarantined
Deleted

Thats some nice grammar
Also, FYI, the "System protector" program is one of those indian scam programs with the same UI as all others and a number you can call on the main UI.

UI has some similarities with Iobit's.

Btw, Systweak had Advanced System Protector for long time. During mid 2010 when I tested a large number of Antimalwares for on-demand detections against a two sets of old malwares (at Raymond cc forum), Systweak's result was good TBH, better than many full-fledged antivirus which choose to dump signatures of old malware. Regardless, the software was buggy and threw false positives and they were known for spamming.
