AntiSpyware XP is a rogue anti-spyware appication. It's from the same family as XP Internet Security 2010. It enters users' computers via false and misleading advertisements, bogus online anti-malware scanners and misleading video sites. AntiSpyware XP can be described as typical rogue spyware remover, because it uses false scan results and fake security alerts to make you think that your computer is infected with malware.
