While XP Internet Security is running you will notice that your computer will begin to run slower. This is because the program is always running in the background while using your computer's resources. XPInternetSecurity will also display many fake security alerts and impersonate Windows Security Center to make the whole scam look more realistic and to finally convince you into believing that your computer is badly infected. Furthermore, the rogue program will block anti-virus and anti-spyware software and hijack Internet Explorer. This hijacking consists of XPInternet Security randomly displaying a message into Internet Explorer stating that the page you are visiting has been blocked due to malware activity or other security threat.
