Antivirus XP. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Gabriel E. Hall - -   Also known as Antivirus XP 2008, AntivirusXP 2008, AntivirusXP2008 | Type: Malware

Antivirus XP is a new rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which uses trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, to enter the system. This parasite is a clone of Antivirus 2008, which has been very popular recently – this is more than evident when you count all the clones Antivirus 2008 has produced over the past few weeks.

Antivirus XP uses popups and fake system notifications as a means to intimidate the user by leading him to believe he is infected. This is usually false information, but this method is used to create a reason for the user to buy an antispyware program (to be more precise – Antivirus XP).

Antivirus XP is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s websites Anti-Virus-XP.com, A-VXP08.net and Online-Security-Systems.com using your HOSTS file.
