GuardBytes Plus Removal Guide

Do you know what GuardBytes Plus is?

GuardBytes Plus is a fake AV. Are you surprised? Many computer users are, because the clandestine threat looks just like any other antivirus application that offers legitimate malware detection and removal services. Unfortunately, the application is distributed using illegal activity, and it presents completely fictitious and unreliable information. This false information is presented so that you would pay $64.95-99.95 for a license of a completely worthless tool. Instead of wasting your money, you need to delete GuardBytes Plus, because this rogue will not give you anything useful in return. If the removal of this rogue confuses you, we strongly recommend reading this report.GuardBytes Plus Removal GuideGuardBytes Plus screenshot

Our malware researchers link GuardBytes Plus to the infamous family of rogue anti-spyware software known by the name Braviax. A-Secure 2015 and AVbytes Win 7 Antivirus 2015 (other versions include AVbytes Win 8 Antivirus 2015 and AVbytes XP Antivirus 2015) are just a few of the many rogue AVs that may be active as well. Even though the names of these threats are different, they all run in the exact same manner. Once these threats are infiltrated, which is usually done silently and illegally, users cannot run executable files, and this stops them from removing the rogue or doing anything else. Unfortunately, this is also what confuses users about the legitimacy of GuardBytes Plus. Some think that the non-existent infections reported the GuardBytes Plus scanner are real, and that they are responsible for the system’s paralysis. In fact, your operating system will start running normally only after you delete the rogue.
