At first sight, WinGuard may seem like a useful application that can enhance your browser performance, make surfing the internet more secure and protect you from phishing attacks. This is exactly how the application is promoted at its official homepage via win1guard.net. However, it is not common for users to download adware applications from their official websites. Just like SecurityUtility, WebEnhance or WebCheck, WinGuard also often spreads bundled with other unwanted applications. According to your research tab team, Amonetize installers distribute WinGuard among computers that have Germany IP addresses. The installer file also comes with ReMarkit, Plus-HD, OffersWizard, GenesisOffers or any other similar adware application.
Therefore, it should not be surprising to have more than just one adware application on board. Although you may not notice that you have unwanted programs installed on your computer unless they start displaying random advertisements. WinGuard says that this application is supposed to protect you from cyber threats and make internet browsing safer, but this program does not live up to its promises.
