How to remove XP Anti-Spyware 2011

Posted by Support @ On Tuesday, April 19, 2011
I assisted someone to remove the XP Anti-Spyware 2011 today. This is a similar category of Spyware Protect 2009, Vista Antimalware 2011, and Win 7 Antispyware 2011. The malicious codes apply similar approach of scaring user by displaying pop-up that your computer is infected, ask you to activate XP Anti-Spyware software, imitating  anti-virus or anti-spam program to buy. DO NOT BUY anything. A local computer technician can clean this for you.

If you're a system administrator or a local computer technician. Here's a simple procedure I tried and tested to clean up this mess! This manual removal is not applicable to end-users that doesn't understand computer trouble shooting, leave this to the professional. Seek for assistance right away.

End these processes in Task Manager

Delete this file here:
C:\Documents and Settings\juliad\Local Settings\Application Data

Run Regedit and delete these entries:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.exe "(Default)" = 'exefile'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.exe "Content Type" = 'application/x-msdownload'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\exefile "Content Type" = 'application/x-msdownload'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\exefile\DefaultIcon "(Default)" = '%1'

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\DefaultIcon "(Default)" = '%1'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command "(Default)" = '"%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\.exe" /START "%1" %*'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command "IsolatedCommand" = '"%1" %*'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\runas\command "(Default)" = '"%1" %*'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\runas\command "IsolatedCommand" = '"%1" %*'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile "Content Type" = 'application/x-msdownload'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command "IsolatedCommand" = '"%1" %*'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\runas\command "IsolatedCommand" = '"%1" %*'
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command "(Default)" = '"%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\.exe" /START "%1" %*'
