XP Security Center.


XP Security Center is a rogue antispyware program despite its creators advertising it as a legitimate security tool. It secretly installs through Trojans such as Zlob, and displays a number of annoying pop-ups that claim your computer is infected with Trojans and viruses. 
XP Security Center tries to trick you into purchasing the fake full software. Remove this dangerous program from your computer.

The main carriers for XP Security Center to get into your system is through some video codec and media player downloads. Once XP Security Center gets onto your system, it pretends to start an automatic scan of your system. After the scan is over, it generates fake reports telling you that your system has multiple instances of spyware and malware. It then offers you to purchase and download a full licensed version of XP Security Center, which will clean your system.

Removal:

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
  •  XPSecurityCenter.exe
Location of the infection:  
  1.  %program_files%\xpsecuritycenter\unzip32.dll
  2. %program_files%\xpsecuritycenter\pthreadvc2.dll
  3. %program_files%\xpsecuritycenter\XPSecurityCenter.exe
Registry Entries to be removed. (Take a backup of registry, before editing it)
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run xp securitycenter
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\xp_securitycenter
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\xp_securitycenter info
Although it is possible to manually remove XP Security,  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  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
