Super Antispyware says that there is something called Browser Safeguard that has unwanted programs in it, but doesn't remove it.

 

I noticed that my browser is a litle slower than normal. Is this malware?

 

I went back to superantispyware and it deleted the problem, please disregard this post.

Hello -

Your SAS is correct and you need to remove it -

If you have problems with SAS removing the program, install Update and use  Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

 

If you still have problems, I would go via Programs and Features to remove it so it will not conflict with your Antivirus or Antimalware programs.

 

About BrowserSafeguard

Although it is quite Legal, the methods of installing it can be "under-handed" at times.

 

 

Thanks to quietman7 for the basic original topic -
 

BrowserSafeguard is a program that scans your web connections for threats and blocks them if detected. BrowserSafeguard is able to do this by configuring your web browser to use the program as a proxy server. This allows all traffic to be inspected as it is passed through the program.
