AV Guard Online is a rogue program from the same family as Security Guard 2012 malware. It tries to scare you into paying for bogus software and to make you think that your computer is infected with viruses. AV Guard Onlines is installed through the use of Trojans that display fake security alerts and pop-ups on the computer and infected web sites. When running, this parssite will pretend to scan your computer and detect numerous files as malware but will not allow you to remove them until you purchase the program. Furthermore, this fake program will block legitimate anti-virus and anti-spyware programs or in some cases it may block nearly all legitimate software on your computer and disable certain system tools such as Task Manager and Registry editor. This can be very annoying so you should uninstall AV Guard Online from yourt computer as soon as possible. While AVGuardOnline is running, you will be constantly shown fake security alerts and pop-ups on your computer. Those alerts will state that there is some type of security risk on your computer and then prompt you to purchase fake antivirus. The rogue program will also display fake security alerts and pop-ups. Some of the fake security alerts you may see on your computer screen:
