PC Security Guardian is a new rogue antispyware application which is nothing but a scam. It comes from the same family as Best Malware Protection and Personal Internet Security 2011. And they have many things in common. Firstly, they are all pretending to be legitimate security softwares and try to confuse computer users. Like this one, PC Security Guardian, it is designed as a legit security application but its purpose is scam your money. PC Security Guardian would run a number of falsified system scans that would be accompanied with lots of the annoying security pop-up alerts that would declare your PC system is seriously infected with various malware infections. Then it will suggest you to purchase its full or commercial version in order to remove all those non-existent computer threats. Secondly, many computer users got this virus without any notice. PC Security Guardian invades a computer system via gaps in the system defense and other available vulnerabilities. PC Security Guardian installation files could be bundled with some decent applications that could be downloaded from insecure websites. PC Security Guardian infiltrates a computer system secretly, without a victim’s consent and knowledge. It is urgent and necessary to remove it from your computer as quickly as possible.
Can’t remove PC Security Guardian by anti-virus programs?
