XP Total Security 2011.


XP Total Security 2011 is a rogue security program that is promoted through the use of Trojans.
When this fake program is running, it will simulate a system scan and display a list of false system security threats. XP Total Security 2011 will display fake security warnings and impersonate Windows Security Center to make this scam look more realistic. It will also hijack your web browser and block antivirus and anti-spyware programs. Finally the rogue program will ask you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the non-existing infections. Don't purchase it and remove XP Total Security 2011 from your computer upon detection.


XP Total Security 2011 protects itself quite effectively. It blocks legitimate security software and hijack web browsers. In some cases it blocks all programs, not only anti-virus or anti-spyware software. What is more, it will detect many of well known and reputable websites as harmful and display fake security alert stating that you may infect your PC if you open a particular website. And of course, it disables certain Windows functions such as Task Manager. It's possible to remove it manually, but you have to re-enable those Windows functions at first. You may also download an automatic removal tool, but again have to fix some registry entries and terminate the main process of XP Total Security 2011 to be able to use malware removal tool. As you can see, XP Total Security 2011 is nothing more but a scam. If you have already purchased this rogue program then contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.

  • [random].exe
Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\Application Data\[random]\
  2. %UserProfile%\Application Data\[random]\.[random].exe

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClasses.exeDefaultIcon "(Default)" = '%1' = '"%UserProfile%Local SettingsApplication Data[random].exe" /START "%1" %*'
Although it is possible to manually remove XP Total Security 2011, 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.
