I'm having a problem with PSGuard and saw the posting on your site: http://www.geekstogo...exe-t48913.html

I too had this garbage installed to my computer while on the internet and have been trying to get rid of it. My symptoms are somewhat different however. I can use Ad-Aware to remove it almost entirely - except there are 3 files which Ad-Aware says it cannot delete. They are: C:\_RESTORE\TEMP\A0633387.0 and C:\_RESTORE\TEMP\A0633417.1 and C:\_RESTORE\TEMP\A0633563.0
I have removed PSGuard with Ad-Aware now 5 times and it seems to remove all the files except for these 3. I also go through and delete all the folders which are left (in the usual places - program files, Windows\Application Data\ Shudder Global Limited\PSGuard and others. I then don't see PSGuard anywhere while I use the machine. But as soon as I get on line, it begins to rebuild itself and comes right back. First are the dippy little icons on the task bar and then finally a full blown version which installs a short cut on the desktop and opens and begins to scan my computer. I have to shut it off and fix the settings for it to not run. It's obvioius this thing has control of going somewhere as soon as I get on line. I fear what else this garbage might be doing while I am on line. HELP! I've tried to manually remove the files, but I can't find them. Why can Ad-Aware find them, not remove them, yet I can't even find them?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
