Personal Guard 2009

Personal Guard 2009 is the latest in scams! Pretending to be a spyware remover, this application has one primary objective: to scare its victims into purchasing its licensed version.

Personal Guard 2009 also referred to as: Personal Guard2009, doesn’t deviate much from the typical and most widely practiced tactics of PC parasite infiltration.

Personal Guard 2009 tends to use affiliated backdoor Trojans, usually Trojan Vundo or Zlob, in order to ensure hidden penetration into the targeted machine is successful.
Once inside the designated system, Personal Guard 2009 will obscurely create hundreds of fake malware entities in the infiltrated system. Once this is done, Personal Guard 2009 will then “detect” these dummy files and ensure the unsuspecting user, you, think it’s high time you removed all the reported malware.

Personal Guard 2009 malicious trialware usually runs each time you log onto Windows and will display its fake system scanner that claims to find a variety of corrupted dangerous files.

As a well-practiced tactic, Personal Guard 2009 will have you believe that in order to protect your Operating System against these “detections”, you will be prompted to install Personal Guard 2009 full commercial version which of course demands payment.
If you do install Personal Guard 2009’s licensed software, you will soon realize that it’s not only worthless in terms of malware removal, but it compromises any computer systems’ performance and will eventually slow down the computer considerably.
One should remove the Personal Guard 2009 rogue anti-spyware application as soon as it has been detected.

I suggest you employ the services of a fully functional and legitimate antispyware tool to remove this parasite and all its components.

    Just to note I downloaded and installed Spy-Hunter 3 on 11/3/09 and it does not remove personal Guard 2009, It is not worth the $50USD that it cost me.
