XP Security is another rogue anti-spyware application - a complete scam! XP Security 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 Security, which, quite obviously is completely useless. This has been determined because XP Security makes use of pw.exe, the main executable process of various other infamous rogue applications. XP Security or XPSecurity usually infects computers via misleading advertisements, which claim to be online virus scanners. Alternatively, XP Security may also enter into a computer system via Trojan infections.
Once XP Security 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 Security 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 Security scam! Do not purchase this corrupt software, and most importantly remove XP Security and all its components from an infected system ASAP!
