ScanGuard Review Released - Potentially Misleading

A new tutorial has been released explaining how ScanGuard should be avoided at all costs. This system is not a reliable antivirus product, and even worse, is being heavily advertised to try and get people to buy it. You should not buy, or use, it.

CHESTER, U.K. - Nov. 19, 2016 - PRLog -- An antivirus tool called "ScanGuard" has been heavily promoted online recently, constantly asking people to download and buy the product. Videos of the company's proported CEO have also appeared online suggesting people do the same thing. Whilst the product is not malicious in itself, some of its sales practices are extremely questionable, with many people in the technology community stating that people should proceed with caution.

A new tutorial has been released describing how to remove the ScanGuard system from your PC, as well as evaulating several specific details about how the antivirus system doesn't live up to its claims. It seems that demand for information about this tool has risen significantly in the past few months, due in part to a new push from its marketing teams.

The tutorial explains that although "ScanGuard" is registered to a company in Washington State, it's part of a larger community which spans the globe. Established names, including the likes of Kaspersky, Norton (Symantec) and AVG already provide a huge amount of world-class support for the systems. Unfortunately, this does not translate into a reliable system that you can use.

If you are afraid of viruses on your system - and you're using Windows - there are a number of important facets to consider. Firstly, most viruses have to be downloaded onto your system manually. This requires your express permission - meaning only if you allow an illict file to be downloaded will it ever cause a problem. Secondly, there are several types of virus. You have malware (which is software that acts maliciously), viruses, trojan horses, keyloggers, and a swathe of other infections.

In order to protect your system from these infections, you need to use an antivirus tool that is both effective and reliable. Unfortunately, ScanGuard is neither. ScanGuards virus definitions are questionable, as well as having an engine which seems inconsistent at best. Not only that but its incessant attempts to get you to buy the "upgrade" make you think the product is not genuine. In cases like this, and due to the sheer scale of other available systems, you should look to download a free antivirus tool such as AVG or AVAST.
