Advanced XP Defender is a rogue anti-spyware program that pretends to be legitimate spyware remover. This malware is found to be a clone of WinIFixer which similarly uses scare tactics (such as pop-ups and fake system tray notifications) to convince its victims that computers are infected. The reason of doing that is very simple - Advanced XP Defender hopes to make them believe that its licensed version is the only one capable to remove those detections. Please, never purchase Advanced XP Defender because it's the only problem on your computer.

According to our security researchers, this parasite infects the system by using trojans, such as Zlob and Vundo. It will be set to start as soon as PC is rebooted and then start interrupting its victims with numerous alerts and notifications. Note that AdvancedXPDefender is a product of Pandora Software - a software company of highly dubious nature. It has been found to be is also behind such scams as SpyAway and the recent InfeStop. So, do not trust Advanced XP Defender because it's a typical scam that should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block the homepage using your HOSTS file. In addition, if you have spotted it on your PC, remove Advanced XP Defender without any delay.
