    Scanguard: Legit or scam? What is the truth?


    There is a lot on the web about Scanguard, but most of the evidence appears to be circumstantial.
    I have yet to see any concrete evidence that the product is a scam.
    Has anyone come across anything definitive?

    While the company and it's software seem legit, I would call it a scam! They just want your money.
    From what I've read, if you run the trial version, it creates, seemingly, a bunch of false positives in an attempt to get you to purchase the full version.
    Personally, with Windows 10, I think any 3rd party security is a waste of time and money.
