XP Guard is a fake computer security program that promises its victims to fix their computers and remove all viruses detected.
However, you should know that these “viruses” won’t be found by any legitimate anti-spyware because XP Guard fakes them trying to make you concerned. Just like XP Security 2011, this scam hails from notorious malwares family which expects to steal users’ money. 

By changing its name according to the OS it finds, programs from XP Guard group infect computers unnoticeably with a help f Trojans. XP Guard is also distributed through fake online scanners, flash updates, misleading pop-ups that appear when you are browsing, so make sure that your anti-spyware is usually updated!

Having infiltrated the targeted computer, XP Guard will start causing numerous problems though it will try to convince you that it is extremely needed. Being quite hardly removable, this scam displays lots of false spyware detection reports and fabricated scanners that will announce the same thing. This unpaid activity also includes continuous pop-up ads and takeover of your browser to interrupt into your normal work with PC.

Going no further, XP Guard will say that for elimination of these problems, you firstly have to register its “full” version and now it should become obvious that it wants your money only. XP Guard should not be left inside your PC because it will let other scams to reach your machine and also starts fraudulent activity.

Although it is possible to manually remove XP Guard, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
