XP SecurityCenter (VERY NASTY)

Recommended Posts

Folks this is a VERY nasty infection and thank goodness for SUPERAntiSpyware!!! Even XP SecurityCenter's website http://xpsecuritycenter.com looks legitimate but it is totally bogus. I had to do many manual routines and DOS file removals before I could actually load SUPERAntiSpyware because this malware was stopping any and all programs from being allowed to install or removed. One of my customers even paid the $49.95 for this program and he is now working with credit card company to stop payment. Who knows how much info they took from him already by taking over his computer.

Be on the alert for this one!

I had the same experience yesterday. I realized it was a scam - but too late. It blocks everything. On a hunch I restarted in safe mode. This allowed me to get to my Free copy of SuperAntiSpyware and run it.

I know I sound like an advertisement - but it got rid of most of the problem. (I immediately went on line and paid for the full version).

I ran it a 2nd time - got rid of more.

But - some of it is still there. I've got the words "VIRUS ALERT!" in my task bar (next to the Time) - it appears in copies of my Outlook email - next to the date - as well as in my WINFAX copies. Obviously it's tied into date/time fields.

HELP - How do I get rid of the remnants.

Thanks, Steve

Run this registry script and it will be gone :

Thanks for the Registry Script download - Good News --- It eventually worked perfectly.

'Problem was - when I first tried to use it I got a message "Administrator has denied access to Registry Editor" 'would'nt allow me to run the script. The stinkin virus thought of everything.

I found a site that that has a simple download that allows you to Enable/Disable the the registry editing tools.

I ran this, restarted, and ran the https://www.superantispyware.com/downloa ... usintl.reg

All is well with world.

Run this registry script and it will be gone :

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Superantispyware, and it no longer runs because of XPSecrutiy Center. Any hints to help me out? BTW, I had professional running when XPSecurity Center blew me up.
