XP internet Security
XP Internet Security is the newest rogue anti-spyware application. And no – this application will not be able to assist you any way, shape or form. This program is dubious and was designed to have harmful functionality. Making use of the same main executable as many other rogue applications, pw.exe is the proof that XP Internet Security is nothing more than a sophisticated online scam.
The remarkable thing about this rogue application is its ability to transform and change its interface and name - dependent on the operating system it is dealing with. In this case, XP Internet Security is the name it goes by when embedded within the Windows XP operating system.
XP Internet Security is also referred to as Antivirus XP 2010 and XP Guardian.
XP Internet Security generates fictitious system warning alert messages, generates fake scan reports and fake error messages about the “infection” on the computer system. All of this is aimed at ensuring the user of the computer system is coerced and tricked into purchasing the “full” version of XP Internet Security software.
All in all though, I would recommend, especially if not completely sure as to what is going on in a computer’s registry, one should make use of a reliable and legitimate, fully functional, up-to-date anti-spyware application, to remove XP Internet Security and all its components from the infected computer system.
