Total XP Security
Total XP Security is the latest application one needs to be aware of, and should definitely NOT trust!
Total XP Security, also known as TotalXPSecurity, TotalXP Security, Total XPSecurity is a rogue antispyware application, and will only damage any system it has infiltrated.
This dubious application is the latest version of the infamous rogue antispyware: Windows Defender 2010.
NOTICE:This parasite limits your access to the Internet. To regain Internet connection, see instructions here.
Just like Windows Defender 2010, in order to remove this parasite Total XP Security you will need to employ similar tactics used to remove rogue applications.
The best thing to do if you have detected Total XP Security is to simply delete the application as soon as possible.
It is important to note that once embedded within a computer system, Total XP Security will kill all .exe processes, leaving the system without fully operational and functional processes; therefore before attempting to delete this PC parasite from a system, you must make sure you have backed up all your data.
The next step would be to download a reputable, trustworthy anti-spyware application. Once you have downloaded an up-to-date security tool, make sure you boot your Operating System up in SAFE MODE – this way, the chances of your system and all its .exe processes being affected is greatly minimized.
Safe Mode is basically the best option when attempting to troubleshoot a computer system, whether it be a driver problem or a spyware infection one needs to fix, safe mode is the way to go.
Why Safe Mode?
Well, when in Safe Mode, the computer system loads the least amount of drivers and components, thus allowing you to perform the many tasks needed to restore the system to its fully functional state.
Total XP Security usually appears on a user‘s computer once a fake video codec has been installed onto the user’s computer system. Total XP Security will continue with the generation of phony scan reports and fake system pop-up error messages to coerce the user (YOU) into purchasing the “Full” version of Total XP Security.
Unless one makes a plan to get rid of Total XP Security promptly, the user will continue to receive annoying pop-up messages and fake system scans, accompanied by the synchronized depletion of overall system performance.
In short, Total XP Security is simply a form of fake software with the intent to steal your money. Do NOT fall prey to its tactics of manipulation!
