AV Guard Online. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as AVGuard Online, AVGuardOnline | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12

AV Guard Online is a rogue program from the same family as Security Guard 2012 malware. It tries to scare you into paying for bogus software and to make you think that your computer is infected with viruses. AV Guard Onlines is installed through the use of Trojans that display fake security alerts and pop-ups on the computer and infected web sites. When running, this parssite will pretend to scan your computer and detect numerous files as malware but will not allow you to remove them until you purchase the program. Furthermore, this fake program will block legitimate anti-virus and anti-spyware programs or in some cases it may block nearly all legitimate software on your computer and disable certain system tools such as Task Manager and Registry editor. This can be very annoying so you should uninstall AV Guard Online from yourt computer as soon as possible. While AVGuardOnline is running, you will be constantly shown fake security alerts and pop-ups on your computer. Those alerts will state that there is some type of security risk on your computer and then prompt you to purchase fake antivirus. The rogue program will also display fake security alerts and pop-ups. Some of the fake security alerts you may see on your computer screen:

Windows Security Alert
To help protect your computer, Windows Firewall has blocked some features of this program.
Do you want to keep blocking this program?
Name: Zeus Trojan Publisher: Unauthorized

Security Warning
There are critical system files on your computer that were modified by malicious software.
It may cause permanent data loss.

Just like the false scan results, these security alerts are just another trick to make you pay for scareware. You shouldn't purchase it, because otherwise, you will lose your money. As you can see, AV Guard Online is nothing more but a scam. If you have already purchased AV Guard Online, then we suggest that you contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Then you should remove AV Guard Online on your computer as soon as possible following the removal guide below. We strongly recommend you to scan your PC with at least one legitimate and reliable anti-spyware program, such as Spyware Doctor.

Back again. Computer 1 is in the shop to try to get it to run. Suddenly computer 2 refuses to boot. It hasnt been used since Tuesday, but both machines were accessing the same e-mail files on that day. Unlike computer 1, computer two starts to boot but shuts itself down before I get a screen display. Its an Acer Extensa running Fedora 13. The installation disk will not boot, nor will a Ubuntu live disk. Although Ive not seen the AV Guard display on my totally black screen, the presumption is very strong that thats the problem. So I have to echo Erick-how do I get rid of this thing if its hosed my whole machine?

This thing showed up on grandmas computefr yesterday and behaved just as you describe. It appears to redirect google links to anti-virus sites. Caused system to repeatedly freeze; had to turn the machine off manually. We left it unplugged over night and now it wont start at all. The power supply is apparently dead. Any way malware can simulate that?

ComboFix to the rescue! I tried several anti-malware programs (Spybot, AVG 2011, Emsisoft Antimalware, and Malwarebytes to no avail. My computer was having so many problems and wasnt wanting to boot, so I downloaded (from another computer) HDD Regenerator on a USB stick, plugged it into my computer, hit F9 while booting, changed my boot drive to USB KEY, and ran HDD Regenerator. When it was finished, I could boot into Safe Mode and run ComboFix (which I also downloaded to my USB stick). Had to have all anti-virus programs turned off so I could run ComboFix (even though I had uninstalled one of the anti-malware programs, ComboFix said it was running, but there was an option to go ahead anyway AT YOUR OWN RISK, which I did). When it was finished running, it restarted my computer and everything works great! Love you COMBOFIX!! Youre the best!
