Getting Rid of Additional Guard

It seems as though nothing can go wrong with your computer, doesn't it? After all, computers are machines, and machines tend to not mess up very often. So it makes sense, then, that your computer would not mess up very often. Unfortunately this is not true, and all too often people discover that their computers have a serious problem. Maybe it's running a bit slower than it should be. Perhaps you're experiencing some odd pop-up messages suggesting you have a number of virus infections or malware installed on your machine. If this is the case, it might not be as bad as you think. It could just be that you have Additional Guard installed on your machine.

What is Additional Guard?

Often called rogue security software, Additional Guard is a program designed to make you think you have more problems than you actually do. The goal is to get you to download and install the full version of the program, and it uses some pretty scary tactics to do just that. The most prominent of these, though, is convincing you that your PC is infested with malware.

What Is Malware?

Often concealed deep within your computer, malware is short for malicious software. These kinds of programs can do everything from seriously damage your machine to upload your personal information to an unknown party, thus placing you at risk for identity theft.

It is important to note that in most cases, your computer isn't actually infested with malware or any other problems more serious than Additional Guard. Because this application in and of itself has the ability to open a few other security holes in your system, though, it's best to remove Additional Guard as soon as you notice it is installed on your machine.

How Do I Know If I Have Additional Guard?

One of the best things about rogue security software it that, if you know where to look, these programs can be easily identified. In the case of Additional Guard, you may see something like this pop up on your computer: "Additional Guard has detected potentially harmful software in your system. It is strongly recommended that you register Additional Guard to remove all found threats immediately." Or you may see a system alert that says, "Suspicious software which may be malicious has been detected on your PC. Click here to remove this threat immediately using Additional Guard."

Right away the program has identified itself as Additional Guard. While you might see other kinds of pop ups (both the traditionally styled pop up and the Windows Notification Balloon style), these are two of the most common associated with the program.

In addition to warnings like these, you may also see a scan window appear occasionally on your computer. This window, too, will identify itself as Additional Guard. The window itself says something like "Windows Advanced Security Center," and throughout the interface, you can see where it says "Additional Guard Activated" and "Activate Additional Guard Ultimate Protection." Again, the overall goal is to get you to purchase the full version of the program, and clicking on any one of these links, or the pop up ads mentioned before will take you to the site where you can do just that.

In addition to things like this, you might also see icons for the program on your desktop as well as a general system slow down that wasn't there before Additional Guard was installed on your machine.


Removing Additional Guard

If you do have it, it's best to remove Additional Guard as soon as you get the chance. You simply don't want to risk the security holes it could create on your computer. Many, however, rely on their current antivirus software to handle the procedure for them, and that's not a good idea for one simple reason - Additional Guard isn't a virus, it's rogue security software. That means your antivirus solution just can't handle it.

You have to basic options for Additional Guard removal: you can manually remove the program or you can install software that will handle the process for you.

A Note About Manual Removal: If you're someone who knows what you're doing when it comes to computers, manual removal of Additional Guard shouldn't be very difficult. It will, however, be time consuming and could take hours of searching for the program in your computer. And many find that when they believe they've gotten all of the files, they haven't, causing the program to simply reinstall itself at a later time. If, however, you have no idea what you're doing when it comes to deleting program files or editing your machine's registry, it's probably best to choose a piece of software to handle the task for you. It can be quite dangerous to remove Additional Guard on your own without some help, as simply deleting the wrong file or entering the wrong thing into your machine's registry could irreparably damage the PC.

If you think manual removal might be right for you, a list of affected files and registry keys appears at the end of this article. If, however, you think it might be best to find a software solution to your problem, you're probably right. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) is our recommendation, and there are many others out there. Before you make your final decision, you may want to investigate the market a bit, as there are many different options, but some of them are other rogue security programs too. Doing a bit of research will help you sort out the reputable titles from those you want to avoid.

Once you choose the software that's right for you, download it, install it, and update it. Then let it perform a deep scan of your computer. You should be aware that this can take a few hours if this is the first time you've ever scanned your machine. When it finds Additional Guard, it will remove it instantly, and simply setting it to update and scan your machine automatically will prevent the problem from happening in the future.
