BrowserSafeguard is software that can be considered "malware" or "adware." It claims to protect PCs from viruses and other threats but once installed changes the browser home page and search bar and begins displaying ads to the user.
BrowserSafeguard is published by Adknowledge and is both available as a free download from the company website and also bundled for free with certain media players and video conversion tools. It is relatively easy to remove as it can be uninstalled with the standard procedure for removing programs for each version of Windows. Certain free malware removal tools can also be used to remove BrowserSafeguard from a computer.
