What is Spy Guard?
Spy Guard is an adware developed by Big Water Applications LLC. It is hard to say what was the initial purpose of such development, but it is clear that this program uses the way of monetizing development that are not popular among computer users. Displayed ads quickly become annoying, while tracking trackers is barely the way to improve system security. Activities related to adware affect system performance, consume web traffic, and compromise user’s privacy. Since adware activities are used for monetizing, there is a great chance that the information collected from tracking user’s web browsing will be sold to other promoters for income. It might have some impact on user’s privacy.
If you want to avoid installing adware products like Spy Guard, then you need to pay attention to setup wizards that install free programs that you download. Any one can be bundled with adware programs since developers are well paid for distributing and installing them. Look for marked check boxes since additional programs are often set for automatic installation, and this check mark means your approval for legal maters. Always use “custom” installation option instead of “typical” that hides programs being installed from user’s view. And finally, if in doubt, use your search and put “remove” in front of the program name. Even a simple look on the search results might give you a quick answer.
