Windows Premium Guard is a rogue anti-spyware program should be uninstalled from the system as soon as possible. This kind of software is usually classified as rogue anti-spyware because it's not like a real virus but more like a useless program tries to swindle the money from its victims by offering fake malware removal services. Windows Premium Guard is attached to the Win32/FakePAV  and Win32/FaleVimes families of scareware. All these rogue anti-spywares have managed to make much harm for PC users, so make sure you don't fall victom to it. As soon as you notice its fake warnings announcing about malware detected, remove Windows Premium Guard from your computer. The best way to remove this rogue antispyware program frpm the system is to use legitimate anti-malware software which will not only remove the rogue program from your computer but will also check the system for other malware.

Windows Premium Guard is designed to scare as many computer users as possible into believing that their computers are infected. It starts displaying fake security alerts that pretend to be checking the system for viruses, spyware and other malicious software. However, all those continuous system scanners and alerts actually do nothing but display identical alerts like earlier versions of Windows Premium Guard and report only invented viruses or legitimate files supposedly detected on your computer. Windows Premium Guard simply may display numerous fake security alerts identical or similar to these ones:

Warning

They will start appearing on your PC just after some minor modifications will be made on your infected computer. When talking about the ways how Windows Premium Guard is promoted, you should know that this malware enters the system with the help of trojans, infected websites and fake online virus scanners. You can be tricked into installing its trial version for free or simply downloading fake Flash or Java updates.
