XP Antispyware description

XP Antispyware is a misleading program. Trojan based software starts its activities as soon as it is installed on your computer. Malware installs itself automatically.

Once installed it will display false system security warnings and then will prompt program to buy a “full” version of this program to remove threats that don’t even exist. For example:

XP Antispyware Firewall Alert
XP Antispyware has blocked a program from accessing the internet
Internet Explorer is infected with Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen
Private data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and passwords.
Name: Windows Internet Explorer
Location: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\explorer.exe
Company: Microsoft Corporation
Version: 7.0.5730.13
Windows recommend Activate XP Antispyware

Bogus system neither has the ability to detect nor remove computer threats therefore it is not being trusted. Do not fall for this blatant scam.

XP Antispyware may hijack your browser to deceptive web pages that advertise bogus program. Do not fall for this blatant scam. XP Antispyware is not the program you can count on. It is not worth spending your money because it will be stolen. Avoid buying anything this program offers but use reputable anti-spyware application and terminate malware immediately.
