I know nothing about it, other than what's asserted on the company's page:   http://www.anvisoft.com/product/smartdefender.html

Based on that, I have 3 concerns:

1)   The product is only in a BETA release.   That means it's still in the "testing" phase, and as such, anyone who uses it is a "guinea pig"... they're hoping "knowledgable" users, who encounter problems, will contact them with details, so they can fix things when it comes time for the "official" release.

2)  It includes other system repair operations:  "You only need to click "Care Now", it will scan and repair system problems automatically to improve your PC performance:  System Optimize, Registry Fix, Privacy Cleaner, Memory Sweep, and Disk Defragment."   I would be very leery about these, particularly anything that attempts to "fix" the registry.

3)   Finally, the statement "Compatible with all Antivirus Products :  It works well with leading antivirus products. And Anvi Smart Defender is the best choice of assistant with your security suite" says to me that it's intended to supplement (rather than to replace) another antivirus program/suite.

Apparently, it's new. There is a two-page discussion HERE.

[Opinion] After looking at a few of the malware questions on their forum, I saw no resolutions in the threads that I reviewed.. The only suggested tool was their ASD product. emoticon.Surprise.title  My question: How can you fix anything by throwing a tool at it without first making a careful diagnosis based on seeing what is running on a system?
