XP Antispyware Pro 2013 is a malicious application that belongs to the category of rogues. In reality, it should be called as ‘rogue antispyware’ because it belongs to the same group of viruses as Win 7 Antispyware Pro 2013, Vista Antivirus Pro 2013 and other threats we have already announced. All these programs seek to make users think that they have numerous viruses on their computers. For that, XP Antispyware Pro 2013 and other its versions display continuous alerts and system scanners that report about various malware threats detected. Such rogues warn their victims about Trojan horses, adware and similar programs that sound like viruses. Additionally, XP Antispyware Pro 2013 offers to purchase its license and fix the problems. However, though it looks trustworthy, it has no capability to find and remove viruses because it has an empty virus database (if you check this program on other computer, it will report about the same threats). As you can see, you should never believe XP Antispyware Pro 2013 and leave this program on your machine.
