Good review, Bob - you have spotted it for what it is. I always have been sceptical about these 'Top Ten' sites that seem to promote software I have never heard of and can't research. As you say, there are plenty of genuine software choices out there to choose from so why go off-piste into unknown territory?

Hello Bob: This was a story posted as a sidelink on Yahoo Mail. Here is the link to it: http://www.smartwebuser.org/104

The Scanguard article on www.smartwareuser.org is a paid for advertisement. Don't trust what it says.

Agree with your thoughts. Might add that the "Test PC" should not have access to an active LAN. Your thoughts on ways to safely isolate a PC from a LAN and still access the Internet, would be appreciated.

Just another reminder from Bob that there's too many people out there looking to empty your pockets - pfishers, irs scammers, scanguard type utilities.

Meant to say smartwebuser.org, not smartwareuser.org.

I came across this software one day and I thought it sounded great. I was not able to find more information. Thank you very much for providing further information. After reading your information, I will never consider using it. It sounded soo good but it proves to be too good to be true.

The scanguard interface is almost exactly the same as AVG Pc Tune Up, which I run on my computer. I strongly suspect it was pirated from AVG or AVG licensed it. AVG should be made aware of this product. Perhaps you can advise.

Hey Bob, you mention CCleaner, PrivaZer, and Advanced System Care, but what out the free edition of Glary Utilities? Would you also recommend Glary Utilities? It also has a feature that will scan your PC for outdated software and let you update it via www.filepuma.com .

I got this ad and felt it was a scam also. Thanks Bob for the info and the great advice. Just think of all the people who do not read up on scams.

Hi Bob,
Dell and HP are now building their computers so it's more difficult to get access to the HDD and memory, indeed we have to remove the whole bottom.
People should be inform of that situation and why not recommand computers with easy access

The people at Bleeping Computer also checked it out. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/631417/scan-guard/

The "Free Scan" is just that, just a scan. It costs $50 for it to actually do anything.

I found it amusing that one responder mistyped it as "scamguard." Yup, it's another attempt to get money from the unwary.

This scanguard was on your site the other day, I checked it out before I used it. As a new member to your site, it made me suspicious of you. Sorry.

Bob, it sounds to me that we don't need this program. I'd rather see someone invent a program to alert users of this kind of thing. THAT program should be called "scam guard"!!

ScanGuard is a complete scam.

I'm curious as to the recommendation of Advanced SystemCare. To me any product that claims to speed up a PC by 300% cannot be trusted. Unless the PC is completely bogged down with trojans, malware and PUPs, it would be impossible to triple the speed on any PC.
