What Is Windows Proofness Guarantor?

Windows Proofness Guarantor belongs to a group of rogue anti-spyware programs that have been infecting computers around the world. The rogue anti-spyware applications in this family all share hilariously awful names. This is probably due to a combination of bad English, and that their creators are probably running out of ideas for possible titles. The terrible grammar is probably caused by their country of origin. These bogus security programs are thought to come from the Russian Federation, a country that is notorious for harboring computer criminals. The fact that they may be running out of names is because there are dozens of clones of Windows Proofness Guarantor. The titles for these programs have reached a point where they hardly make sense.

They also all begin their initial installation process with a fake Microsoft Security Essentials notification.
