    sgbhp.exe (in Windows Tasks Manager > Processes tab)
    HijackThis was unable to detect it. I have no idea what it actally does except it may be part of SpywareGuard. is it not quite strange that it should be constantly running at 1,476 k(Mem Usage)....?
    Hoping someone can give me some insight into it.

    Hey there, and welcome to Wilders!

    Indeed, this is part of SpywareGuard. Mines running at over 3,300k :D

    Anyway, this is how SpywareGuard is able to offer resident protection. That means sitting in the background the way it does with heuristics and signatures to watch for any of the garbage it's made to combat trying to install on your pc.

    Actually it stands for SpywareGuard Browser Hijack Protection, but close enough. :D

    And yep - it is indeed an important part of the SpywareGuard protection. :)

    Best regards,
