SpeedGuard Removal Guide

Do you know what SpeedGuard is?

Many computer users download and install SpeedGuard just because they think that it is a trustworthy program that can help measure the speed of the Internet connection. Those who install this program soon realize that SpeedGuard is not a reliable program because they start seeing commercial advertisements. Of course, not all users associate those ads with SpeedGuard; however, these commercials usually have labels which show that they are displayed by SpeedGuard. Actually, the fact that this program shows ads does not surprise us at all because we know that it is a typical advertising-supported application (adware). It is not advisable to keep these programs installed even if they seem innocent at first sight because they can cause more harm to your system than you might think.SpeedGuard Removal GuideSpeedGuard screenshot

If you visit speedguard.net, which is the official website of SpeedGuard, you will notice very soon that this program claims to be “the perfect tool for testing your Internet Speed.” SpeedGuard is definitely not perfect; in fact, we even think that it would be smartest to erase this adware completely and install another tool for monitoring your Internet speed. One of the main reasons why we do not recommend keeping this adware is the fact that it might expose you to threats. This might happen very quickly because ads generated by this program contain links. Nobody knows whether these links will take you to reliable websites after clicking on them, which means that there is a risk of infecting your PC with malware. Believe us: You do not want to encounter serious malicious applications, so we suggest removing SpeedGuard and minimizing the possibility to cause harm to your system.

Like hundreds of other adware programs, SpeedGuard collects information about a user’s online behavior in order to display advertisements. This program is usually interested in search queries, IP address, the names of the websites a user visits, and the content he/she accesses. The only thing that we can suggest to you if you want to put an end to this is to remove SpeedGuard from your system. It is, of course, also necessary to check whether other undesirable programs have been installed alongside SpeedGuard and remove them all if any others are there.

SpeedGuard is an adware program, so it is not so difficult to remove it compared to other threats. If our instructions do not help you do that, you should acquire an automatic scanner and then simply perform the system scan. We understand that it might be difficult to decide which tool to install; however, we recommend using SpyHunter because we are 100% sure that it can help you.
