ScreenshotSystemGuard is a corrupt anti-spyware application that is promoted on malicious rogue websites. Once visited, such websites will emulate a fake scan of your system and display exaggerated virus threat reports. If you download a trial version of SystemGuard, it will perform yet another bogus scan and "find" even more threats that can only be removed by the full version of the program, which you are continuously offered to purchase. It is strongly recommended to eliminate SystemGuard from your machine as soon as possible.
