Browsing through Microsoft’s forum, we noticed there is one term that caught the attention of many people: ScanGuard. Most users believe this software is actually a malicious program and avoid installing it on their machines.

Other Windows users aren’t sure whether ScanGuard is a virus or not, and simply want to gather more information about it. So, is ScanGuar malicious or not?

ScanGuard Antivirus puzzles Windows users

Do not use this, I believe it to be a scam. The first trick is it is free——-oh no it aint, sooner or later your brain will ask just how much is this going to cost me, carry on at your peril ! If you do back out (common sense kicks in) make absolutely sure you can delete it all in its entirety.

ScanGuard is a PC clean-up and optimization tool. Since it’s a very new program, there is not much information available about it. All data indicates that ScanGuard was rolled out in September, but the fact that its creators have yet to provide potential users with more details is, indeed, worrisome. However, the tool’s official website appears to be genuine, although this is not a solid evaluation criterion.

ScanGuard is free to install, but it comes with a yearly subscription of $49.00. As far as users’ feedback is concerned, it appears ScanGuard leaves much to be desired because its behavior is similar to a malware’s. Here’s what one user reports:

Beware this Scanguard software. If you don’t purchase the removal tools after it finds multiple problems on your computer it will then take over your computer via the Edge browser and threaten to lock it.

Other users report that while well-known antivirus solutions can’t detect any threats on their machines, ScanGuard comes up with a long list of potential threats.

big scam not free. found loads of malware a on my computer that had just been scanned and found to be safe and clear, but they come up with loads of preinstalled alerts about infections that just are not there. then they expect you to buy it to clear your fictitious malware, not Free just a scam don’t use it.

In a nutshell, we don’t recommend ScanGuard to anyone. There are many user testimonials that point to its malware-like behavior. Another fishy element is the lack of reaction of the company behind ScanGuard Antivirus. Most user reviews are negative, yet ScanGuard has yet to issue any comments on the situation.

While no cybersecurity company has confirmed that ScanGuard is a malware, the tool’s unstable behavior doesn’t recommend it for use.

    Scanguard – I have just gone through the steps needed to download Scanguard, and have paid for the privilege via PayPal. Attempts to activate the software simply lead back to a page where I can fill in my bank account details. Attempts to activate a ‘Contact’ link simply leads to adverts. So far then ScanGuard appears to be nothing more than an attempt to obtain the public’s bank and/or PayPal details. Do not go anywhere near it.

    If you did get it, like I did 🙁 , How do you remove it completely! I can’t remember how I got it in the first place, but it isn’t on the list to add/remove programs. I don’t find an app, so I don’t know how to remove it.

    SCAM IMO. I had this ScanGuard window pop on my screen and no matter what I did I can never get rid of it. I have a suspicion, they collect all personal info and track your online usage.

    I don’t know how it happened, but I checked out Scanguard, thought it looked sus, so did not look any further.
    Shock & horror … It had been debited to my VISA card without my authority. So have raised a scam complaint requesting an immediate refund. Just hope I’m lucky!
    Caveat emptor … buyer beware
