    I'm confused as to what iSwift & iChecker are & what they do. I specifically unchecked these options. Because my recollection was they tagged every file on ones computer. That iSwift & iChecker are related to Klstream (KAVICHS). Which was mandatory in KAV5. But by unchecking iSwift & iChecker in KAV6. I was disabling
    Klstream (KAVICHS).

    But I think I'm mistaken. What are the benefits & disadvantages of enabling iSwift & iChecker technology? And what do they do?

    Thanks.

    What became of the concern late last year about iSwift/iChecker possibly causing file corruption. I assume it's a non-issue at this point. Was it ever shown to be true in any cases?

    if it was really corropting files kaspersky would put infomation on there website.
    the only thing i notice is that when i do chkdisc it takes a while on stage 2 to start but thats it.

    In version 5 of their products, iSwift was known as iStream. The technology changed for the version 6 line.
