Agreed with these post?s they are true your friend said true what I have heard is this program when installed in the pc and you start scanning with the trial version they start showing you number of errors and these errors are created by this software itself and then they start showing it in your window and say that these are the number of faulty programs in your pc and you need to delete them and to delete them just purchase this software and people has been fooled by this and it was later know how they were fooling.

I know what this software used to do I would like to share it this software when installed it start?s creating some registry keys in your registry?s tho this registry?s wasn?t corrupted and they were harmless but they had enough strength that they would be detected by any antivirus and then it strats displaying these are the errors on your system and you got get rid of these software of they would start corrupting more of your program and would ask you to buy them and people did buyed and this was the way how they fooled people around.

There were number of version?s from this software and they were XP Antivirus 2008, XP Antivirus 2009, and XPAntiVirus are those faulty antivirus programs which display?s all fake results as a trick to to make people fool and ask them to buy the software. The first version of this software would create 9 entries in your Windows Registry which are capable to show affection on your computer. And in real those software was just to fool they were harmless. This registry was only created so that the software while scanning would find them and can report the problem to you. The next version of this software was , XP Antivirus 2008 and XP Antivirus 2009 these software?s just display the false results when scanning your computer that state infections were found. And to remove these software you got to buy them and get fooled buy their business tricks.
