Additional Guard is a misleading anti-spyware application, fake spyware removal tool. Basically, it is just a rename of the rogue anti-spyware application called Windows Additional Guard
. As its predecessor, AdditionalGuard uses false scan results and fake security alerts/notifications to scare you into thinking that your computer is infected and that you should purchase the program to remove supposed infections/security threats. Obviously, this is nothing more but a scam. Do not buy this bogus software and uninstall Additional Guard from your computer upon detection.

Additional Guard infection may cause serious problems to the system. The rogue application is promoted via fake online scanners and misleading websites. It enters a computer with the help of Trojans that usually come from those fake online scanners. Trojans then download and install rogue application. Once installed, Additional Guard imitates several computer scans and states that your computer is baldy infected with spyware, adware, worms, Trojans and other malware. This parasite then claims that you must purchase AdditionalGuard in order to remove those infections, but the problems is that those infections do not actually exist. The real infections is Additional Guard itself.
