XP-Shield - How to remove?
What is XP-Shield?
XP-Shield is a rogue anti-spyware parasite, and it does the exact same as every other rogue: you find the page, you try downloading it and in the process you get infected with adware. The trial version of the program performs a scan and falsifies the results, spicing it up with worms and trojans and, if you try to clean this mess, you are prompted to buy the full version. XP-Shield doesn’t work, unfortunately.
The XP-Shield homepage has such a lack of content that it can quite possibly heal insomnia, while the few pieces of information sound disturbingly false. “If the answer to one of these questions is “Yes”, then you are probably infected.” Some of the questions look like this: “Your computer has slowed down,” first of all, that is not a question and secondly tons of things can cause your computer to slow down and they’re not necessarilly infections; “You have downloaded music or software from the Web,” need we elaborate? There is no contact information besides an email adress.
XP-Shield is a bogus program that needs your money, do NOT download it, do NOT buy it, if you have it, remove it and block XP-Shield.com’s IP address in your host files.
This Parasite got a revive in year 2009 and is still promoted by some browser hijacker websites.

Manual XP-Shield removal
Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove XP-Shield, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Spyhunter or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.
It is impossible to list all file names and locations of modern parasites. You can identify remaining parasites, other XP-Shield infected files and get help in XP-Shield removal by using Spyhunter scanner.
