XP AntiMalware is a rogue anti-malware program that is promoted through the use of Trojans, browser hijackers and other similar malware. When your computer is infected with this bogus software, you will see many fake security alerts and notifications stating that your computer is infected. While running, XPAntiMalware will supposedly scan your computer and display a variety of infections that won't be removed unless you first purchase the program. The scan results are false, you can safely ignore them. The same could be said about fake system security alerts, you should ignore them too.

To make things even worse, XP AntiMalware will hijack Internet Explorer so that you will be constantly redirected to various misleading websites that promote malicious software or display misleading online ads. The rogue application will also block security related websites and antivirus software to protect itself form being deleted. As you can see, program is nothing more but a scam. Please use the removal guide below to remove XP AntiMalware from your PC as soon as possible.

FYI- we beat this virus once, or so we thought...it comes back as vma.exe At least the user knew enough this time not to think it was real and follow all the faux prompts. We are running NAV, superanti-spyware, SpyBot AND MalwareBytes...how many damn software do we need to get rid of this thing!
