How to Remove XP AntiSpyware

If you experience this malware then good luck .. no seriously it’s a nasty piece of malware designed to lure you into using a rogue program to remove apparent problems on your PC.

Overview

XP AntiSpyware 2010 also known as XP AntiSpyware, XP Antivirus Pro and XP Antivirus Pro 2010 are names of one program, which is a rogue antispyware application. It is promoted and installed with the help of trojans. When the trojan is started, it will download and install XP AntiSpyware 2010 (XP Antivirus Pro 2010) onto your computer.

During installation, XP AntiSpyware 2010 (XP Antivirus Pro 2010) will configure itself to run automatically every time when you run any program that have “exe” extension (99% of Windows applications). The rogue also uses this method of running to block the ability to run any programs, including antivirus and antispyware applications.

  1. Although you don’t want to take the credit this note is to say thanks for your posting which allowed me to follow the link, which I doubt I would have discovered, thus enabling me to fix the problem I had of accessing my programme files due to the “XP Antispyware” trojan.

    • Hi Mark,

      Glad the link was useful, I too have had a few machines with it on and it isn’t an easy thing to fix unless you know! Cheers for the comment, Regards Adi
