How to remove XP Deluxe Protector?
What is XP Deluxe Protector?
XP Deluxe Protector pretends to be what it sounds like, but is actually the complete opposite. This parasite is a fake anti-spyware program, which uses malicious methods both to spread and sell the software. XP Deluxe Protector typically enters the system by using the Zlob or Vundo trojans, which are nasty enough as they are. The program’s raison d’etre is to trick users into purchasing the so-called “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the trial.
Once inside, XP Deluxe Protector will employ the use of popups, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. While this information would seem likely to be true, considering the amount of infections out in the wild today, XP Deluxe Protector has neither the ability to detect nor remove threats, and is actually a threat in and of itself. Much like any other rogue, XP Deluxe Protector performs fake system scans, which produce exaggerated results, usually spiced-up with false positives. The scareware might also hijack the browser, and will most definitely result in a significant decrease in overall system performance.
XP Deluxe Protector is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
