AdditionalGuard Removal Instructions

Rogue security applications such as AdditionalGuard pretend to be added security for your computer, but these kinds of programs are not created protect anything at all.  Rather, they are designed to try to scare computer users into buying a shoddy software product by pretending to warn about the computer becoming infested with malware.  AdditionalGuard actually provides no “additional guard” whatsoever.

This rogue security application will even go so far as to copy real security notifications that would be received from the Windows Security Center. It will also lie about the presence of malware and viruses in order to intimidate the computer user.  Rather than providing security, AdditionalGuard is only in the business of trying to deceive and spook the computer user.  Because of this, it is advisable to immediately remove the program from any computer.

    I have no idea how this virus came into my computer, but I receive pop-ups like crazy.. I receive warnings about AdditionalGuard virus, but my anti-virus is not able to delete it. I’m happy that I found this site and it made it’s job. Thanks for the help!

    I spent a few months looking for a good anti-spyware software. After all the ones I looked at, I could not find one that worked as well as SpyZooka did. It is fast and if there is a problem, it will find it.
