Remove Windows XP Repair virus

Windows XP Repair 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.

What Windows XP Repair virus does

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

When installed, the rogue will perform a fake system and detect 11 critical errors. Some of the errors:
- Drive C initialization error
- Read time of hard drive clusters less than 500 ms
- 32% of HDD space is unreadable
- Bad sectors on hard drive or damaged file allocation table
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 Repair 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 Repair 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 Repair removal instructions.
