Usually, IGuardPc must be manually installed, but the trick is that this program impersonates legitimate or useful software. Sometimes it not so easy to tell weather software or for example security alerts are fake or legitimate, especially for inexperienced Internet users.

To make this whole thing look more credibly, it will impersonate Windows Security Center and state that your anti-virus software is turned off.
