XP Antispyware 2010 is a rogue security program that is promoted through the use of Trojans. Once installed, trojans will impersonate an Automatic Windows Updates window and download the bogus program onto your computer. When this fake program is running, it will simulate a system scan and display a list of false system security threats. Moreover, XP Antispyware 2010 will flood your computer with fake security warnings and impersonate Windows Security Center to make this scam look more realistic. It will also hijack your web browser and block antivirus and anti-spyware programs. Finally the rogue program will ask you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the non-existing infections. Don't purchase it and remove XP Antispyware 2010 virus from your computer as soon as possible.

The bad news is that XP Antispyware 2011 (another name of virus) protects itself quite effectively. It blocks legitimate security software and hijack web browsers. In some cases it blocks all programs, not only anti-virus or anti-spyware software. What is more, it will detect many of well known and reputable websites as harmful and display fake security alert stating that you may infect your PC if you open a particular website. And of course, it disables certain Windows functions such as Task Manager, Regedit and etc. It's possible to remove it manually, but you have to re-enable those Windows functions at first. You may also download an automatic removal tool, but again have to fix some registry entries and terminate the main process of XP Antispyware 2010 which is AV.exe to be able to run the removal tool.
