Personal Deluxe Guard

Posted: June 11, 2009

Personal Deluxe Guard (also known as PersonalDeluxeGuard) is a fake spyware remover. Personal Deluxe Guard infiltrates your computer via security exploits or backdoors provided by affiliated trojans, and once active, is configured to start running whenever Windows starts up. Personal Deluxe Guard will then prompt you to scan your computer. When this fake scan is complete, various false security alert notifications and annoying pop-ups will be triggered, stating that your PC is infected. In order to combat this threat, you must purchase the full version of Personal Deluxe Guard.
