Removal Instructions for Personal Guard 2009
Almost everyone knows that malware is a threat to their personal information. But if you are looking for protection against malware, don’t use Personal Guard 2009. It is a rogue security application that is seeking to take your hard earned money in exchange for a worthless program.
Personal Guard 2009 invades computers through Trojan horses that download it without the user’s knowledge or permission. Once it has been secretly installed it will begin to execute its scare tactics. It will cause fake security alerts to appear in the desktop tool tray and will perform fraudulent system scans. It claims to detect malware and tells the user that they need to purchase the full version of Personal Guard 2009 in order to have the infections removed. However, the program is completely powerless against malicious software and will cause the infected computer to slow down.
If this rogue has infected your computer, you should remove it as quickly as possible.
In order to do this manually, you should kill the following processes:
Relative file contents
Personal Guard 2009.lnk
Then, delete these registry entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Personal Guard 2009
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Personal Guard 2009
