ScanGuard Is NOT A Reliable Antivirus Tool

No. ScanGuard Antivirus is not a real antivirus application. It's designed to solicit money from you by telling you that you have "infections" on your system. Whilst the system may seem professional, it's not very good and shows false-positives.

CHESTER, U.K. - Nov. 18, 2016 - PRLog -- Scanguard Antivirus seems to be developed by a professional company, but is woefully underpowered and borderline malicious. A new tutorial has been released explaining that this tool is actually something to avoid.

Antivirus applications are a dime-a-dozen, with many including Kaspersky and Norton having risen with the "personal computer" revolution of 1995. Even today, with the transition of computing into the "cloud" era, the stable antvirus solutions are adapting their offering to include all devices. Unfortunately, this has also allowed several less well developed applications to come to the fore.

ScanGuard - like many smaller applications - was developed by a small team in the US. According to their WHOIS records, it was developed in a city called Kirkland in Washington State. Interestingly, this is very close to Microsoft's headquarters in Redmond, Washington. Nonetheless, the company is still in its infancy and although you may let them off, they still need to ensure they're able to provide a high quality service.

The tool promises to clean out malware, antivirus infections and also boost your PC's speed. Whilst many antivirus applications have adopted the "be all" ideal, it's typically a sign of mediocrity to offer so many different ideals. In reality, the best tools are specific and focus on a single point of upgrade for your system. For example, the undoubted best anti-malware application is MalwareBytes. ScanGuard seems to be adopting the Norton approach of the 90's (bloatware).

After installing ScanGuard, we found that the system was unable to remove many of the "infections" it claimed to find. Whilst it wasn't ransomware, it was certainly not of the disposition to remove many of the infections our system had. In fact, most of the infections it posted were "false positives" - threats it identifies which are not of any problem at all.

In the end, we would strongly recommend against ScanGuard for the simple reason that it's untrustworthy. You may try it if you wish (we don't think it's malicious), but in terms of it being able to keep your system running smoothly and without issue, we would strongly disagree. In short, there are a number of other tools which can do this much better, quicker and effectively than ScanGuard.
