Windows XP Restore

This is because Windows XP Restore’s convincing looking GUIs and its misconceiving name will be enough to fool most users into thinking it is a genuine security tool. Windows XP Restore emanates from the same family of rogues as Windows XP Recovery and Windows 7 Recovery, and will not relent until it succeeds in ripping its victim off.
This rubbish rogue enters the system through devious tactics, which includes using seditious browser hijackers and fake online malware scanners. Of late it has also been reported that Windows XP Restore makes use of infected online flash ads to root its infection into unsuspecting PCs.

It will also report on genuine Microsoft files that if deleted will cause the system severe malfunction.
The only way you will be able to regain control of your PC and take back what is rightfully yours is if you destroy Windows XP Restore without further hesitation.
