Dr. Guard

Dr. Guard is a rogue anti-spyware program that reminds of Paladin Antivirus a lot comparing the look of these two malicious applications. They work really similarly as well. Dr. Guard is infecting computers with a help of Trojan viruses that are promoting the program by displaying fake alerts on your desktop.

Once inside, the application is first trying to uninstall your legitimate anti-spyware program, for example, F-Secure, NOD32, Avira AntiVir, AVG8, Norton Internet Security, etc. After that, Dr. Guard starts its scanner. In reality the scanner of Dr. Guard is fake and it only imitates looking for infections. However, when the scan is done, the program shows tons of infections supposedly harming your system.

In addition to that, Dr. Guard imitates a message of Windows Security Center which looks just like the real one and recommends you purchasing Dr. Guard in order to protect your system. Dr. Guard promises detecting and eliminating viruses from your desktop and networks, real-time on access scanning, isolating suspicious files in quarantine preventing infections and so on.

This is not the only message you will see while Dr. Guard is running on your system. Different alerts will keep popping while you will be trying to run some programs. The messages will say that your computer got some serious threats that may corrupt your information or send it to hackers.

Please don’t trust any of this kind of messages and, most importantly, do not purchase Dr. Guard. Get rid of Dr. Guard as soon as you detect its traces on your system.
