Dr Guard also referred to as: DrGuard doesn’t deviate much from the typical and most widely practiced tactics of PC parasite infiltration. Hailing from the same creators as the Paladin Antivirus rogue, Dr Guard will be no less of a danger to a computer system.
Dr Guard 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, Dr Guard will obscurely create hundreds of fake malware entities in the infiltrated system. Once this is done, Dr Guard will then “detect” these dummy files and ensure the unsuspecting user, you, think it’s high time you removed all the reported malware.
Dr Guard 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.
If you do install Dr Guard’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. And once you have installed Dr Guard – there is NO way to uninstall it!
The only way to rid your system of this nefarious tool would be to employ the services of a fully functional and legitimate antispyware application, or to actually manually remove the parasite.
One should remove the Dr Guard rogue anti-spyware application as soon as it has been detected.
Guard against fraud and malice by ensuring your antispyware and antivirus applications are up to date, always!
