What is WebGuard?

WebGuard (Injekt media) is an adware program (supported by various types of advertising) that is usually bundled by third party installers and download managers. Once installed, this ad-supported web browser extension will run within the context of the user's browser (supports Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox) and is primarily designed to inject advertisements in a number of formats within the web pages the user is visiting. Ad insertion takes place in the form of both full banner adverts as well as text-hyperlinks that are injected over existing HTML content. As for the banners, these are either inserted within existing white space in the rendered HTML or by overwriting the pages ads.

From the site: "Web Guard is entirely free to use. In order to keep Web Guard free, we've partnered with high-quality ad providers and you may see additional ads when Web Guard is installed. In some cases, we may display product offers during your installation process. These offers make it more efficient to search the web by providing you with multiple places to search from (an additional search field, your home page or via opening a new browser tab). Included with these toolbars are typically widgets that provide new ways to access your favorite websites, social networking platforms and news sources."
