Windows Guard Solutions is a rogue security program that displays fake security alerts and reports non-existent malware infections to trick you into purchasing the bogus software. Once installed, this fake anti-spyware program will imitate a system scan and report critical spyware and trojans infections as well as some system errors. Then it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove supposedly found infections from your computer. Because it's a scam you can safely ignore scan results and remove Windows Guard Solutions from your computer as soon as possible using legit antimalware software.

Windows Guard Solutions is promoted mostly via Trojans, browser hijackers, fake online virus scanners and hacked websites. Usually, Trojans display fake security warnings and suggest you to active Windows Guard Solutions in order to ensure full system protection. Hacked websites may download and install malicious software on your computer without your knowledge. That's why it's very important to use reliable antivirus software while browsing the web. While running, the rogue security application will constantly display bogus system notifications and fake security alerts about insecure internet connection or supposedly harmful files found on your PC.

Error

It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.

Error
Software without a digital signature detected.
Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
