XP AntiMalware, also referred to as XPAntiMalware, is another rogue anti-spyware application – a shameless online scam making use of pw.exe, the main executable shared by plenty of other rogue applications! XP Antimalware is designed to coerce PC users into believing that their computer system has been infected with various spyware and malware, all of which are tactics employed to ensure the unsuspecting user will fall for the scam and ultimately purchase the full version of XP AntiMalware, which, quite obviously is completely useless. XP Antimalware usually infects computers via misleading advertisements, which claim to be online virus scanners. Alternatively, XP Antimalware may also enter into a computer system via Trojan infections.
Once XP Antimalware is installed on a computer it will perform a system security scan and will definitely report malware infections found – it is important to note that these reported infections are fake! XP Antimalware will also display annoying pop-up warning messages and system alert notifications, stating that the computer is infected. These warnings are also fictitious and should NOT be trusted! Do not fall for the XP Antimalware scam! Do not purchase this corrupt software, and most importantly remove XP Antimalware and all its components from an infected system ASAP!
