Rango XP Protection 2014 is a malicious program that will do anything to make you think that you need to get its licensed version. However, if you have recently been tricked into buying it, you may have already understood that it is a useless tool used for making the money. The first and the most important thing that you must remember is that Rango XP Protection 2014 reports only about invented viruses. It can either inform you about harmless files that should never be removed or report about invented viruses that have nothing to do with your computer. After purchasing, it just stops showing its fake alerts and simply hides in the background. Attention! Keeping the trail version of Rango XP Protection 2014 or the paid its version inside the system is NOT recommended because this program can be used for such malicious activities as stealing personal information from the system. In addition, it can easily download other cyber threats to your computer without your knowledge. In order to stay safe, you should remove this rogue anti-spyware from your computer. By the way, as its name suggests, this program is capable of infecting only Windows XP OS. However, it doesn't mean that if you are using Win 7 or Win 8, you are safe.
