Remove Windows XP Recovery virus

Windows XP Recovery is a fake computer optimization software that displays false information that your computer has a lot of critical problems with hard disks, memory, etc. It "detects" these problems in order to trick you into purchasing so-called full version of the software.

Like other malicious programs from the same family of fake optimization tools, Windows XP Recovery can be installed without you noticing that, through the use of trojans. It does not require your agreement!

If you will attempt to scan your computer with Windows Recovery, it will detect 11 critical errors. Remember, the scan results are a fake, this malware is unable to detect any problems. So you should never trust this fake application and ignore all that it will display you.

While Windows XP Recovery is running, it will display various fake warnings. Some of the warnings:

Critical Error! RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure.
Critical Error! Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.
Critical Error! Windows can't find hard disk space. Hard drive error
Critical Error! Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk.

As you can see, Windows XP Recovery pretends to be a legitimate PC optimization tool but, in reality, it is a scam. You should remove this malware as soon as you notice it installed on the system. Follow the Windows XP Recovery removal instructions.
