How to remove Advanced XP Defender?
What is Advanced XP Defender?
Advanced XP Defender is yet another rogue program, a clone of such parasites as InfeStop, WinIFixer and SpyAway. All these scams have been found to be released by the same company (if we could call it that) – Pandora Software that has supposedly spent many years in the security industry, but have appeared on the net only in 2007. As soon as Advanced XP Defender gets inside the system, it starts displaying continuous system scanners, alerts and notifications reporting about numerous viruses detected. Instead of falling for these alerts and removing those ‘viruses’, you should remove Advanced XP Defender instead. That’s the main malware on your PC.
Advanced XP Defender is typical rogue, which infects the system by using trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo. This is done by exploiting browser security loopholes, which is why Internet Explorer users are the most common victims of such attacks. Once inside and active, Advanced XP Defender floods the user with pop ups, alerts and fake system notifications reporting numerous viruses detected. Though it may seem that all this is done with the good intention of ‘informing’ you that you are infected and giving you a solution, you should never fall for such trickery. First of all, infections that are reported on Advanced XP Defender alerts are non-existent on the system at all and, additionally, this application can’t fix anything. Advanced XP Defender is created for the only reason – to get the money from its fake license, so please never purchase it. If you have this sneaky malware on board, remove Advanced XP Defender ASAP.
