Option #1.

Antivirus Vista 2010, Win 7 Antispyware 2010, and XP Internet Security 2010 are new rogues that are exactly the same program, but are shown with different names and interfaces depending on the version of Windows that it is run on. When installed, this rogue pretends to be an update for Windows installed via Automatic Update.


It is possible that the infection you are trying to remove will not allow you to download files on the infected computer. If this is the case, then you will need to download the files suggested in this guide to another computer and then transfer them to the infected computer via a CD/DVD, external drive, or USB flash drive. If this is not possible, see the <<RescueCD>> section on home page.

Removal instructions for XP Total Security 2011 (and its clones)

Use Malwarebytes’ and the FixReg.exe first as instructed by Bleeping Computer and if the threat remains then use Rkill to stop the rogue process and without restarting your computer run Mbam again

Rkill Download Links







#1. do not turn off computer until after running Malwarebytes when using rkill or the process will have started again and you will have to start over.

#2. DO NOT USE ON A CLEAN COMPUTER as it could damage certain legit security programs. Disable all security software if possible to run

#3.Vista and Windows 7 users, right click and click run as administrator.

Option #2.

You can register by entering the following serial code 1147-175591-6550 (manual registration) Thanks to Xylitol

The Malware Researchers have found these Registration Keys from within the Rogue programs themselves and have kindly provided them for all to use.  After using the Reg Key you let the Rogue scan or do what ever it wants to do(Scan is normall) and then do a restart. After the restart the Rogue is NO LONGER AN ISSUE.  Malwarebytes’ or the removal tool of your choice can be downloaded with NO interference from the Rogue. You enter no personal info, only the Reg Key, Fools the Rogue into thinking you paid for it.

Step 2. If Needed

SUPERAntiSpyware Tutorial 🙂

When SUPERAntiSpyware will not install or run see*****HERE*****

SUPERAntiSpyware Online Safe Scan

SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner can be downloaded from a different computer and run on the infected computer. The scanner does NOT install anything on your Start Menu or Program Files and does NOT need to be uninstalled. It runs from the CD and requires NO internet connection. If the infected computer can not download, then this is a solution. Simply download the portable scanner and copy it to a USB/CD. NOTE: The portable scanner is random named to prevent the malware from stopping the scanner from running. For more software similar to this see the RescueCD software section on home page which scan an infected system and can recover personal data due to infection/defective or failing hard drive.
