Is Security iGuard for real?

I found this site while looking for help with a virus that was affecting my msn homepage (by changing it to w-find/home.htm all of the time). I believe that I have fixed this problem just by reading your posts (thanks!), but I do have a question regarding Security iGuard.

I am running Windows XP Pro and Security iGuard never popped up onto my desktop until I was infected with this "w-find" virus. From that moment on it would pop up and tell me to "click here" to find solutions to my virus problems. I never did click on the icon and just closed the graphic. Then I had to continuously uninstall Security iGuard from my computer.

Is Security iGuard a real Microsoft program or is it a virus in disguise? If I wanted to make sure that it never came back up, how would I remove it from my computer?

Thanks for your help! Great site!
