Get Rid Of Xp Virus Protection – A Rogue Anti Spyware Program
XP Virus Protection is a rogue antispyware program, a clone of Security Suite program which has been actively infecting computer systems a while ago. It uses exactly the same methods and has the same goals as the latter program.

The application uses system exploits in order to enter the system. The exploitable program then installs a Trojan virus which finally downloads and installs XP Virus Protection to the infected computer.

The program is started as soon as the workstation is rebooted. The same repeats every time you log in to Windows. It loads a fake scanner and simulates performing system scan. After a while, the program generates a list of infections and asks you to purchase a full version of XP Virus Protection in order to get rid of detected infections.

if you are infected by XP Virus Protection and your security program doesn’t detect it, you should read the following steps to remove the virus.

Step 1. Restart your computer and press F8 to enter Safe Mode with Networking during windows startup.
Step 2 Open your browser like Internet Explorer. Click on the Tools on the menu and then go to Internet Options.
Step 3 Now Internet Options window will pop up. Click the Connections tab and then click on the LAN settings button.
Step 4 In the Local Area Network (LAN) settings window. Do not choose the option: Use a proxy server for your LAN under the Proxy Server section. Click Ok to make your choice working.
Step 5 Run your security program now and scan your system thoroughly.

I have noticed that some manual removal of XP Virus Protection are available online, but I think it is obvious not suitable for most computer users. It is a common case that many computer users will make more severe mistake and make things worse. As regard to removing XP Virus Protection, a professional antivirus program is the best choice.
