Do you know what Windows Internet Guard is?
If it ever happens that your desktop becomes black and you just see a strange program running, you should know that it is very probable that you encountered Windows Internet Guard. This program is just a simple rogue application that is not going to do anything good for your system because its main purpose is to earn money. It is already known that all FakeVimes family infections seek to convince users to buy the license. As this program is nothing more than just fake security software, it is not surprising that it will not be useful at all. Instead, it will not allow you to access any of your documents and programs. This is one of the main reasons why we recommend erasing Windows Internet Guard entirely from the system.
This rogue application uses several tactics to convince computer users to upgrade it. The main one is trying to scare them by displaying various fake messages and pop-ups. Besides, it performs a fake scan after it gets on the system and then provides a list of infections that are supposedly residing in your system. Of course, it offers to remove them as well, but you will have to buy the license that costs $99.90. You should definitely not spend your money on the license of this fake program because you will lose your money and you will not be able to get them back. What is more, you will reveal all your credit card details, which is rather dangerous because cyber criminals might use them in the future. As you can see, the most what you can do is to erase Windows Internet Guard from the system. Unfortunately, it is not a very easy process because it blocks .exe files and browsers, which mean that you will not be able to erase it via Control Panel.Windows Internet Guard screenshot

You should not believe those ads that you might meet on the web claiming that your system is infected and offering to download a scanner if you do not want to infect your PC. Besides, Windows Internet Guard might enter the system if you open infected spam attachments or keep visiting adult websites; thus, you should stop doing this. As you can see, it is especially important to be careful. However, if you suspect that you have Windows Internet Guard already on your PC, make sure that you erase it as soon as possible. You can also enter one of the following keys in order to disable the symptoms.
