Do you have PSGuare Malware program installed? Remove PSGuard. Description and removal instructions

Description: Rps.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files". Known file sizes on Windows XP are 229376 bytes (72% of all occurrence), 274432 bytes, 237568 bytes. There is an icon for this program on the taskbar next to the clock. The program has a visible window. The program can be uninstalled in the Control Panel. The file is not a Windows core file. The application listens for or sends data on open ports to LAN or Internet. Therefore the technical security rating is 14% dangerous.

Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as Rps.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the Rps.exe process on your pc whether it is pest.

If this is where it is located, then you will need to go to the Malware Section of this forum.
