Remove BrowserSafeGuard

Browsersafeguard is a utility that was created to protect your computer against malicious software. This application can be downloaded from its official website at The webpage says that this software will allow users to browse the web without having to worry about infections. However, if you carefully read through the information on the website, you can see that the program is financed by advertising. In other words, Browsersafeguard will display advertisements and classified ads on your PC. Browsersafeguard is supposed to protect you from adware programs (software that displays advertisements) but is actually an adware program itself! The features that Browsersafeguard offers are thus a false pretext for trying to get you to install a new adware program.

Another inconvenience: Browsersafeguard is also supposed to alert you when you try and access a website that it deems untrustworthy. It checks the domain name that you’re trying to get to by analyzing web traffic and then deciding whether or not to block it. The problem is that Browsersafeguard blocks websites that are perfectly legitimate. Finally, to find out the addresses of the websites you visit, Browsersafeguard analyzes all of your traffic. Besides the performance-related problems it causes, it’s also not exactly dreamland when it comes to respect for privacy.

In short, this program displays advertisements, blocks legitimate websites, slows down your computer, is somewhat borderline when it comes to respect for privacy, sometimes gets installed without your consent and, finally, is hard to uninstall. That’s why we don’t recommend installing this program, and recommend removing it if it’s already on your computer.

For your information please know that BrowserSafeGuard is detected as suspicious by 18 security software.
