The AntiSpySafeguard virus is part of a pack of viruses that are being spread by the fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert. Long story short, the phony alert is designed to scare unsuspecting web users into thinking their computers are infected, and then it prompts people to download one of five fake antivirus programs—AntiSpySafeguard, Major Defense Kit, Peak Protection 2010, Red Cross Antivirus, and Pest Detector 4.1.
Then, once the program gets into your computer, it just keeps sending AntiSpySafeguard pop-ups until you finally break down and agree to pay for their “heuristics module.” But of course, it’s the same old story—you can send these guys all the money you want, but you’re never going to get your full version. It doesn’t exist.
These scammers think they’re onto something good with these programs, but we’ll show them. Here’s how to uninstall AntiSpySafeguard for free.
