Do you know what Privacy Guard Pro is?
Privacy Guard Pro or Privacy Guard Pro 2.0, is a fake anti-spyware program that falsely claims to be the perfect solution for your safety. Privacy Guard Pro instead should be advertised as the perfect solution to losing your money because it is absolutely worthless.
Privacy Guard Pro may be advertised and pushed through the website www.privacyguardpro.com which you should not visit. From their it advertises and offers Privacy Guard Pro for $19.95. That is the amount that you will lose if you ever do purchase the full version of Privacy Guard Pro because it does not protect your pc or fix any issues as it says it will.
In non-techie terms:
Privacy Guard Pro 2.0 is similar to many other rogue anti-spyware programs in the way that it performs fake system scans displaying many parasite results. It even goes as far as poping-up alerts and accessing the internet without your permission. The $19.95 price supposedly only gets you a 6 month license where an unlimited one is offered at $39.95 but all offers are part of a scam. Do not fall for the tricks of Privacy Guard Pro. It is a complete waste of money and you do not ever want to install or purchase it under any circumstances.
