Advanced System Protector is a solution to detect and remove malware infections present on your PC. With the vast database of spyware detections, Advanced System Protector protects your computer from Trojans, Sniffers, Adware, BHOs, Key Loggers, Monitoring Programs and other infections that could be low-risk annoying pop-up adverts to high-risk infections that can steal confidential data to severe-risk malware that can even format your system in stealth mode.
Advanced System Protector also has the facility to monitor threats at real-time through which you can synchronize protection while you are actively working on other applications. The built-in guards can restrict changing of passwords or locking your workstation without your permission, prohibit malware to edit registry entries or add unidentified Control Panel items on its own, prevent programs to execute at startup that you are not even aware of, and much more. In addition to all these features, you can schedule the program to scan your system automatically. Thus, with Advanced System Protector you have an all-round protection that can remove all the infections download to your system and even shield them at real-time with the built-in Protection Guards.
Important Safety Information: Read The Following Warnings Before You Continue.
According to some user reviews on the internet, Advanced System Protector displays some characteristics of scareware in that many of the scan results are benign threats or fake alerts – making you believe you have viruses when you don’t and trying to scare you into purchasing the full version of Advanced System Protector to clean your computer. In addition, some users complained that ASP is hard to uninstall.
I have tested the software on my PC (for about half an hour). In my test, Advanced System Protector does have a good reputation on detection rate, but it has a bad reputation on accuracy (report some false positives). And ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6 reports “_aspsetup.exe” as threat: MSIL/Adware.AdvancedSystemProtector application.
On the other hand, Advanced System Protector is rated as outstanding by CNET Editors and is voted as Good (3.8/5) by 74 users on Softpedia.com. Also, in my test it can be uninstalled completely through Add/Remove Programs.
Anyway, if you choose to try it, you are doing so at your own risk. I strongly recommend that you create a System Restore Point, or a complete system backup before trying out it, since such kind of software will deal with the file system, the system registry and the running processes/services, and might harm your computer.
