    A Squared free found Riskware.PSWTool.Win32.Asterisk.a
    on my PC.

    I googled but did not get any info

    Does anyone know what it might be associated with? it says at the first link above it is not malware in itself but can be associated with malware?

    It's a riskware detection. Not an FP, not a true positive. It isn't malware, but it can be used for malicious purposes.
