XP Security 2011. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as XPSecurity2011 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
XP Security 2011 is another way created by fraudulent cyber community to deceive PC users into wasting their money. Besides, because this program is categorized as rogue anti-spyware, people are also tricked into infecting their computers if they run Windows XP. XP Security 2011 is a successor of the very similar programs called XP Internet Security 2010 or recently released Win 7 Internet Security 2011. XP Security 2011 spreads its freeware executables through a fake online scanning sites and misleading pop-up ads that can be randomly displayed when you browse on the web.

Once XP Security 2011 finds itself in your computer, it quickly modifies the registry and invents a number of files so that it could later find them as infections. Additionally, OS gets paralyzed and malware starts disturbing the victim with its fabricated scanners and intensely streamed misleading popup ads. The above alerts tell you that your system is in great danger because it’s being attacked by some extremely dangerous viruses, trojans, keyloggers and additional malware. These alerts say:

System danger!
Your system security is in danger. Privacy threats detected. Spyware, keyloggers or Trojans may be working the background right now. Perform an in-depth scan and removal now, click here.

System Hijack!
System security threat was detected. Viruses and/or spyware may be damaging your system now. Prevent infection and data loss or stealing by running a free security scan.

The only reason why XP Security 2011 plays all this tricky game by reporting imaginary infections is to make you concerned about the status of your computer security. Having fallen in this campaign, XP Security 2011 malware asks to make a purchase of its registered version if you want to save your PC. Now it should be clear that you must avoid this trickery and don’t purchase it. Don’t believe its ads and remove XP Security 2011 from your computer.

UPDATE!!! One of PC security bloggers, S!Ri, has announced about a serial code that may help you to disable those malwares like XP Security 2011 that change their names according to OS they find. Enter this serial code when doing registration: 1145-17884799-7733. This and the order number 21197673 should also work for earlier versions of this type of parasite. After typing them, you should become able to use your anti-spyware, if it fails follow the guide written below. Be aware that these numbers are expected to change in the near future!

To remove XP Security 2011 you will need another PC, as removing it from safe mode with networking will not work in most of the cases.

a) Burn these programs to CD or write them to USB disk. You can use your MP3 player, or smartphone if it has storage functions. This parasite does not spread through USB at the moment:

1.Spyware Doctor or an automatic removal tool below. Update Spyware Doctor and run a full system scan.

2.You might want to download Hitman Pro or Malwarebytes as alternate scanners. Though you are likely to be able to download them later on.

b) Boot normally. Wait for XP Security 2011 to launch, and run exeregfix.reg . This should allow launching legitimate programs

c) Delete or remove the files that are mentioned in our files box. You can use Spyware Doctor to identify the infected files and additional infections or automatic XP Security 2011 removal tool. Do not forget update it before scanning. Remove what it finds.

d) Scan with Spyware Doctor and secondary tools and reboot your PC. This should fully get rid of XP Security 2011.

Comments on XP Security 2011

I got this @Miintx3 I got this sucker like a month ago, and it semeed to be a bigger badder version of all versions based on its ability to ignore all removal suggestions (even in safe mode nothing semeed to work). I dont know if what I did work or if If it was just coincidence. But It seems I got rid of it by trying to run Rkill (all 6 different names for it wouldnt launch), then trying to run it in applocale, then the same using malware bytes. If you dont have applocale, again, it may be coincidence.

Thanks for the idea of getting on a different user. From another user I was able to run Malwarebytes and delete the little nastiness. But its left me with a problem. On the original user, any icon I click on - Outlook, Excel, Word it asks me what software I would like to use to open it. It says Error - Application Not Found. Help?
Well, mine was named blp.exe and it got so annoying at some point but I just did a backup of documents that I needed and made a new account in Windows and then deleted my old one and put the documents back where they were and it seems fine now. Everything works like new.
This anti virus took control of my computer. I was finally able to rid my computer of it by loading the XP Windows CD at start up. It want through and corrected my defective registry. Once the computer booted up the virus attempted to come back but I did not select it. I ended it in task manager. Then I loaded my virus protection up dates and the problem want away.
Tried to use task manager to end process of all suspected 3 letter.exe file, but it didnt work. Fake warnings still kept appearing and the virus would not allow me to open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or any other cleaning program. Ran "rkill" application that I obtained for free from to interrupt the process. Only then I was able to run the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program and rid my computer of the infection. FINALLY! What a relief. I wasted a whole night on this damn virus. Hope this helps you to do it quicker.
use the code and use hitman and it removed the problem...yay
1147-175591-6550 activation code worked!
but i cannot remove the program from my computer!
help plz
A fellow worker has the file lve.exe and when I follwed these instructions to remove it - it came back stronger just like joe said. This time it even shut down applications that were running.

Whats frustrating is we were running software that doesnt seem to be able to detect the virus.
on these 3 letter files how do you find and identify them. I have had this once got rid of it and went to reload adobe and it came back stronger neweer version
Used hitman pro and it removed the problem.
On my pc it was listed as fpv.exe
All is well now
