XP Police Antivirus

XP Police Antivirus is a fake spyware remover program that makes use of Trojan applications, the likes of Zlob or Vundo, to infiltrate a system. It seems that the main goal of this parasite is to trick users into the purchasing of a non-existent “full” version” of the application. This is achieved by showing the user falsified system scan reports. XP Police Antivirus generates this fake system scan and as a result shows misleading information about infections and risks, when in actual fact the computer is infected with XP Police Antivirus. It may also occur that XP Police Antivirus hijacks the user’s browser and may redirect the user into websites which contain rogue content. The manual removal process can be very difficult as XP Police Antivirus tends to hide itself from the system’s user and does not appear in the ‘add/remove program’ list. Should XP Police Antivirus be detected on a system, it is best to delete from the system ASAP!

    People make fake/rogue anti virus softwares just to make some quick bucks. That's why they give you no refund.Anyway, i don't have the virus. but the security center part is actually fake because the title bar does not have the minimize and close buttons. the real one can also be acessed from the control panel. The fake one is actually a dialog box. Plus, on thee website, they must have photoshopped the (fake)box shot from the vista buisness box shot. And, the award is also fake.
