XP Internet Security 2013 – Unregistered Version Description.
XP Internet Security 2013 has blocked a program from accessing the internet? Yes, XP Internet Security firewall alert is a rogue anti-virus application. Like what we said before, it is designed to look like a legitimate security program but it certainly is not one. It pretends to work like a genuine anti-virus application and would even produce system scans and virus detected alert notifications. However, all the system scans and notifications are faked and the rogue application aims to deceive the PC user into thinking that their computer has been infected with several viruses.
XP Internet Security 2013 is listed as a Baravaix virus along with several other fake security applications. The applications sneak into the system and begin to compromise the performance of the computer. It would then prevent several programs from running properly and would initiate fake system scans and alert notifications when you try to run some programs.
XP Internet Security 2013 virus should be removed from the system immediately it is noticed. Hackers use these fake security applications to study the PC user’s keystrokes and browsing history so as to steal personal information. The fake anti-virus is also used to deceive people into believing that their computer has been affected with viruses. It would keep popping out alert notifications to make the user of the computer try to clean the system using the application. When he tries to do that he would then be asked to first pay for a licensed version. But it is a scam and fake antivirus that disabled the task manger and registry editor, since no anti-virus can deal with this fake AV. Just get it off of your computer manually.
