Why is ScanGuard Antivirus a Scam?
I installed a clean or a fresh new copy of Windows 7 on a computer (virtual machine). Remember, this is a new installation of Windows with nothing installed on it. Then I installed free and very popular antivirus software: Avast, AVG, Avira, Commodo and Bitdefender on the same computer. Scan the same computer with all five antivirus software, and none detected any viruses, Trojan horse, spyware, or malware.
Now, I downloaded and installed ScanGuard on the same freshly installed Windows 7 computer. Scan the same computer with ScanGuard, and to my surprise, ScanGuard claims that it has detected viruses and other malware on the newly installed Windows 7 computer that has only genuine software on it. Then it wanted me to pay to do a clean-up to remove the so-called viruses and other malware it claimed it has detected. Also, Microsoft Windows doesn't even recognize it as antivirus software.
Online users, please do not purchase and installed ScanGuard on your computers and mobile devices. And, online users who have already installed ScanGuard and used their credit cards on www.ScanGuard.com, are asked to remove it and check their credit card statements carefully for any unauthorized transactions and report it to their banks.
We recommend installing popular free or paid antivirus software. Click here a list of some of the free, popular and trustworthy antivirus software.
