Additional Guard

Additional Guard Description

ScreenshotAdditional Guard is a fake anti-spyware application. Additional Guard is known to use several extortion methods to basically take money from an unsuspecting computer user in return for a bogus security program.

Additional Guard, once installed, is able to perform system scans only to return falsified parasite results. Additional Guard is not able to detect actual computer parasites but instead, displays several misleading alert messages attempting to warn a computer user of detected threats. Additional Guard does all of these actions in hopes that the user will eventually break down to purchase a full version of Additional Guard. Additional Guard is not and effective security program in the free or full version. It is recommended that Additional Guard be deleted to prevent further confusion.
