What is Windows Safety Guarantee? How to uninstall Windows Safety Guarantee rogue

Windows Safety Guarantee is a recently developed virus originating from Russia. The following problems may occur due to its presence on your PC:

1. Browser hijacking. This means you will not be able to browse the desired pages, except for the payment processing page of Windows Safety Guarantee virus. This blockage is implemented by Windows Safety Guarantee scam in order to prevent you from finding some decent solution in the Internet for its removal.

2. Inability to launch certain programs (exe-files). The reasons for this are similar to those in the clause 1. The Windows Safety Guard rogue is afraid some good antivirus program, upon launching, would remove it. This is why launching of many programs is blocked.

3. Regular facing of annoying popups and the program itself upon each Windows startup.

Before downloading and running GridinSoft Trojan Killer for removal of Windows Safety Guarantee several additional preparatory steps need to be done. This is necesary, because Windows Safety Guarantee blocks your Internet connection, and you will not be able to run GridinSoft Trojan Killer. In order to prevent this blockage please take the following sequence of steps: 1. Make sure that your Operating System is tuned up in such a mode that hidden files and folders of your PC are viewable. The instruction on how to do it can be found here for Windows XP and here for Windows Vista/7. 2. Choose "View" tab in the window that appeared, and in the advanced settings choose the option "Show hidden files and folders". Press OK. 3. Go to the folder %User Profile%\Application Data. Important! Depending on the Operating System of your computer, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7. In other words, the folder that should be opened is as follows, depending on the operating system: C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User]\Application Data for Windows XP C:\Users\[Current User]\Application Data for Windows Vista/7. In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Safety Guarantee, having some random name. 4. Rename the above-mentioned executable file into some other name of your choice and restart your computer. Upon the system restart Windows User Satellite will no longer block your Internet browser. 5. Download the latest version of GridinSoft Trojan Killer or some other good anti-virus program to your infected computer, install it and run it.
