PrivacyGuard Pro.

PrivacyGuard Pro is a new rogue anti-spyware application. This fake spyware remover has many similarities with Privacy Protection Suite.
Privacy Guard Pro enters the system with a help of Trojan viruses and uses well known scare tactics in order to steal money from naive users. 

PrivacyGuard Pro is configured to run automatically every time computer starts up. Once active, this rogue performs fake system scan and reports bogus results including various infections and security problems. Those fake alerts are used with intention to frighten the user and make him believe that his computer is seriously infected. Scammers then suggest to buy a full copy of PrivacyGuard Pro and remove those infections. But actually buying this rogue product won't help you to remove any infections, simply because they are all fake and what is more PrivacyGuard Pro is an infections itself. It would be a much better option to download reliable anti-spyware application and remove this parasite immediately after detection.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • PrivacyGuard.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. c:\Program Files\PrivacyGuard PRO 2.0\PrivacyGuard.exe
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Privacy Guard Pro 2.0
Although it is possible to manually remove PrivacyGuard Pro, 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.
