Don't bother with it, it's less effective than the more popular freeware products Avast, AVG or Antivir available here; click here
(Only have one antivirus program installed at any one time).

Add Superantispyware, Spywareblaster and perhaps a firewall if you think you need it from the same site.

I agree with brundle.Remove it.There are better freebies about.

i did say the problem of pc guard was resolved but it will not uninstal. either with its own uninstaler or add and remove. apart from right click and delete , which may cause probs i cant think of another way to get rid of it. as stated its best to use just the one anti virus prog so until its gone am i best advised not to instal another antivirus progg

I am with NTL[Virgin]For about 7 years and like you downloaded and ran PC Guard.I had nothing but bother with it.The best thing that I done was removing it And downloading some of the freebies which do a better job.But if you are happy with it just now just carry on using it.But remember there are lots of others that you can try when you feel like it.

Just thought I'd post the thread with the removal tool you linked to buteman, may help get rid of PCGuard for `lakeman`;
