aswMBR
« on: November 02, 2022, 08:22:49 AM »
Hello, I did an aswMBR scan on restart of my windows 11 pc latest update and found the output logfile has a strange code and nothing else.
The one li e code has some letters and symbols I have never seen.

There is no other information, surely this isn't normal.. Please help
Thanks

Hi charly12345,

You could have found the answer online, as MS' Robert Koch explains.

The scan information results are too specific to be understood by the average user.
You need a rather deep understanding of the inner technical workings of the Windows system to evaluate.
As the information was being sent to Microsoft, this should be OK.

So I would not worry too much about it, reply was found at answers.microsoft dot com.

That's all we know,

Important information on aswMBR

aswMBR has not been updated for a long time and don't support Win10/11
Known issue was giving bluescreen when run on win10. Lots of info online 
(info provided to me by Pondus, thanks for pointing this out)
