XJR Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware program that displays fake security alerts and reports false infections to scare you into thinking that your computer is infected with spyware, adware and other malware. The rogue program is a clone of Your PC Protector scareware and it is promoted mostly through the use of Trojans and fake online anti-malware scanners. Once installed, XJR Antivirus will run a fake system scan and display a list of malware infections. Of course, the scan results are totally false. The rogue program detects legitimate programs and files as infections, that’s why don’t manually delete any of those reported files as it may cause serious problems to your computer. Instead, please use the removal instructions below to remove XJR Antivirus from your computer safely.

When running, XJRAntivirus will flood your computer with fake and very annoying security alerts claiming that your computer is seriously compromised and that you should activate XJR Antivirus to ensure full system protection. What is more, this fake program will blocks legit antivirus and anti-spyware programs to protect itself from being removed. It will claim that your anti-virus or any other program actually is infected. Some of the fake alerts read:

Security Warning
Malicious programs that may steal your private information and prevent your system from working properly are detected on your computer.
Clear here to clean your PC immediately.

Internet attack attempt detected:
Somebody is truing to attack your PC: This can result in loss of your personal information and infection other computers connected to your network. Click here to prevent attack.

Please note that this fake program consists of two executables called XJR Antivirus.exe and C:Program Filessvchost.exe. You need to end both processes in order to stop the rogue program and those annoying pop-ups. If you can’t use Task Manager, then you may download Process Explorer and use it instead of Task Manager. By the way, the rogue program will impersonate Windows Security Center and claim that your computer is not protected. Please ignore it too just like the false scan results and fake security alerts.
