SaveKeep Removal Guide
What is SaveKeep?
SaveKeep – a phony security tool that creates files and later identifies them as malicious
SaveKeep is a misleading security application from the same family as WiniGuard, WiniShield, WiniBlueSoft, and WiniFighter. The rogue application displays false scan results and fake security alerts to make you think your computer is infected with malware. The main goal of this parasite is to trick you into purchasing the program. Please don't get tricked by threat actors, and don't purchase this fake antispyware tool.
SaveKeep is promoted mainly through the use of Trojan viruses and fake online anti-malware scanners. But other infection techniques are plausible. Trojans display fake security alerts and fabricated Windows Security center windows to convince you that your PC is in great danger. Please don't believe anything that this fake antispyware tool shows you and remove it.

Fake antispyware tools weren't created to find or remove any threats from your device. They show predetermine, fake virus scan results to seem legitimate, useful and convince you into buying them. Apart from falsified scan results, such software also shows notifications with fake claims, such as:
Security Center Alert!
Your computer is being attacked by an Internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trojan-dropper or similar.
Fake Windows Security center notification reads:
Windows Security Center
Your computer is infected by spyware – threat have been found while scanning your files and registry. It is strongly recommended that you disinfect your PC and active Realtime protection against future intrusions.
Please note that all alerts, messages, notifications, virus scans are fake. Once installed, SaveKeep will create random files at various locations and ostensibly scan your computer. Then report the created files as infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the program.
The scan results are obviously false, and you may safely ignore them. Furthermore, Save Keep will impersonate Security Center and display fake security warnings that antivirus protection is turned off or that your computer is seriously infected. To make things worse, this bogus program will block antivirus applications and security-related websites.
The fake security tool will also slow dramatically slow down your computer. SaveKeep is a scam, do not purchase it. Please use legitimate AV software to remove SaveKeep from your computer. If the article's culprit prevents you from launching your anti-malware tool (or downloading it), please reboot your device in Safe Mode with Networking and perform the removal. Afterward, run system diagnostics to resolve system-related irregularities.

How to prevent from getting rogue antispyware
Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are
There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.
Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.
Data backups are important – recover your lost files
Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.
While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
