How to remove Personal Deluxe Guard?
What is Personal Deluxe Guard?
Personal Deluxe Guard is a clone of the rogue anti-spyware program Personal Deluxe Protector, and, just like it, it’s a fake. This parasite usually uses trojans, such as the infamous Zlob or Vundo, to enter the system. This is relatively easy to do, since the trojan is disguised as a video codec and mostly found in porn websites. Personal Deluxe Guard relies on misleading advertising to sell its “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the trial.
The list of means Personal Deluxe Guard uses to make you buy is a long one: you will be pestered by numerous annoying popups and fake system notifications, which are supposedly meant to inform you of infections present on the system. Personal Deluxe Guard carries the same message across by using a few other methods too, fake system scans, for example, which produce results filled with false positives or altogether fabricated data. It might also hijack the browser and will significantly decrease overall system performance.
Personal Deluxe Guard is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block its homepage using your HOSTS file.
