XP Internet Security 2010 is a rogue security program that reports false threats and displays fake security alerts to make you think that your computer is infected. This malware is distributed through the use of Trojans that usually come from fake online anti-malware scanners or misleading video websites. Once a Trojan virus is installed, it will download and install virus on your PC. Sometimes called as XP Internet Security 2011, the rogue program comes as an update for Windows. The rogue program itself is a typical scareware. It reports false infections and asks to pay for a full version of the program to supposedly remove those infections. The most important thing to remember is that XPInternet Security 2010 is a scam, don't buy it! Instead please use the removal guide below to remove this infection from your PC as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, XP Internet Security 2010 uses aggressive methods to protect itself from being removed. It blocks anti-virus and anti-malware software. It may block other programs too, even if they are not related with computer security. XP Internet Security 2010 has a list of executable files that can be launched and it checks that list every time you open a particular program. What is more, it modifies Windows registry and hijacks Internet Explorer and Firefox web browsers. This parasite will display fake security warnings and block certain websites claiming that those websites are dangerous and host malware.

let me try and clarify this too you in dummy terms syetsm renovate is not vacant to remove a virus. When a virus infects your computer it corrupts and takes overο»Ώ syetsm files that your computer knows to be safe now if you did a syetsm image and restored your computer with an image that is different. But if you get a virus and renovate your computer to a week ago excellent luck i guess

I ran spybot in safe mode. That took care of the hijack for Malware Bytes (it only opened the virus program when trying to open MB). I then ran MB also in safe mode and it found and killed it all.
