SafetyGuard is a rogue anti-spyware program that reports false scan results to make you think your computer is infected with viruses.

The scan reaults all false or exaggerated and are only being shown to scare you into purchasing the program. That's the main goal of this rogur program. Please don't purchase it because it won't protect your computer in any way. Instead, please use the removal instructions below to remove SafetyGuard from your computer. We strongly recommend you to scan your computer with Spyware Doctor. It will remove the rogue program and any related malware from your computer. Of course, you can choose to remove SafetyGuard manually as well. The rogue's files are listed below.

While the fake program is running you will also be shown fake security alerts and notifcations from your Windows taskbar. These alerts are fake and will state that your computer is infected or under attack from a remote computer. SafetyGuard will also impersonate Windows Security Center and will claim that your computer is unprotected and can be hacked. What is more, Safety Guard will block legitimate anti-spyware and anti-virus program on your computer. As you can see, SafetyGuard is designed for only one purpose; to trick you into thinking that your computer is infected.
