How to remove WinGuard 0.2

WinGuard 0.2 is an adware application that is identical to SecurityUtility. Some users may confuse it with Winguard Pro, but they have nothing in common because Winguard Pro is legitimate password management software. WinGuard 0.2, on the other hand, enters computers with the intention of redirecting users to pay-per-click Web sites. It does that in order to make money for their creators. If you’re not careful enough, you might end up being infected with malware. Therefore, it is highly recommended to remove WinGuard 0.2 from the system as soon as possible. Adware applications must be taken seriously.

This application has been active since November 2013. Judging from its name, one would think that WinGuard 0.2 is there to protect you from various cyber threats. However, the reality is that this application just displays advertising when you access popular online shopping centers. Although the programme € ™ s EULA says that WinGuard 0.2 was made in Egypt, it is highly questionable because we have encountered similar applications before. WebCheck, WebEnhance and the above SecurtiyUtility are the earlier versions of this application, and each probably was made in Egypt, but the countryâ € ™ s name in the EULA is misspelled. It clearly makes one doubt the credibility of the program.

Download Removal Toolto remove WinGuard 0.2

It is possible to download WinGuard 0.2 from the official website via win1guard. net, but it far more often comes bundled with freeware applications. Most of the time, users don’t even realize they install WinGuard 0.2 on your computer. Based on our security research, when it comes to bundled downloads, WinGuard 0.2 usually gets distributed via Amonetize installer for German IP addresses. The application can arrive with OffersWizard, RemarkIt, Plus-HD, Wajam, Surf Safely, and many other unwanted applications. It means that when one adware enters the system, you can be sure that some other programs will get installed in your PC as well.

WinGuard 0.2 is more annoying than dangerous. It typically displays advertising when you access eBay, Amazon or any other popular online store. These ads are supposed to view discount deals and discount offers, but we do not recommend clicking on any of them. WinGuard 0.2 does not review what types of links get embedded into their ads. It means that even malicious third parties can integrate their content into WinGuard ads, and if you click it, you automatically earn money for adware creators AND you can get exposed to potentially dangerous Web site.

Therefore, remove WinGuard 0.2 right now and then scan your computer with SpyHunter free scanner. You need to make sure that you have no other adware applications on board. If you need a reliable program that will protect your PC from damage, invest in a licensed anti-spyware tool.
