Total XP Security is a rogue anti-spyware program that pretends to be legitimate security software, but in reality this is yet another scam. It’s a typical rogue program. TotalXPSecurity comes from misleading or infected websites or through software vulnerabilities. It’s also distributed through the use of other malicious software and might be even promoted on popular social networks. But that doesn’t change anything, one way or another, the main goal of Total XP Security is to trick you into purchasing the full version of this program.
Once installed, this fake program uses misleading methods to make you think that your computer is infected with malware when in reality the only real threat on your PC is Total XP Security itself. It will simulate a system scan and report numerous infections on your computer that can’t be removed unless you first purchase the program. Obviously, you shouldn’t purchase it because firstly it won’t remove any infection simply because it’s an infection itself and secondly, you will lose you money. So, if you already purchased this bogus program then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges as soon as possible.
What is even more annoying about Total XPSecurity infection is that it constantly display fake security alerts claiming that your computer has a bunch of threats that may steal you passwords or damage your data. Just ignore such false information. Furthermore, Total XP Security will block legitimate software and of course security software in the first place. It may also disable Task Manager and Registry Editor. And last, but not least, this infection will probably hijack Internet Explorer and redirect you to various malicious sites.
