FakeSpyguard

This application is NOT to be trusted! FakeSpyguard is a form of rogue anti-spyware.

By knowing and understanding the functions and properties of FakeSpyguard, one can stay ahead of the curve and maintain optimal computer safety and security.

FakeSpyguard may display the following characteristics:

• Distributes threats
• Makes fraudulent claims about spyware detection and removal
• Annoying Pop-Up Advertisements
• Changes in Internet Settings

FakeSpyguard tends to enter into a system via the following avenues:

• P2P (Peer-to-Peer) Networks
P2P popularity has increased, so have the risks associated with using these networks. When you install a P2P application or download a file from a P2P network, it is not uncommon for spyware to be bundled in with the files and the software.

• Freeware and Shareware
Many of these \"free\" applications come bundled with spyware, which may very well be how the application ended up on your PC.

• Malicious Websites
If you visit one of these websites, spyware may automatically install on your hard drive without your knowledge or consent.

In order to rid a computer system of this dubious application, the following procesdures should be followed:

1. Install a comprehensive anti-spyware solution
2. Update Your Anti-Spyware Software Definitions
3. Perform Windows Security Updates
4. Scan Your System For Spyware

Always important to note, before attempting to make any changes to your system, you must always back up all important data!

In order to remove this parasite, FakeSpyguard and all its components completely from a system, although manual removal is great, I would still recommend, especially if you are not completely tech savvy, to make use of a reliable and legitimate, fully functional, up-to-date anti-spyware application.

This way you will be able to remove FakeSpyguard and all its affiliates from the infected computer system.
