Windows XP Repair is practically the same fake system optimization program as Windows 7 Repair and Windows Vista Repair. The only difference is in its name, because this program generates the name according to the operating system that the targeted computer runs on. Just like the other versions of this program, Windows XP Repair displays fraudulent data in order to scare unsuspecting computer user into thinking that there is a serious problem with his computer. Most of the messages say that there are errors in your hard drive and if you closely at them, you will see that they are absolutely ridiculous.
For example, consider any of the following messages:
An error occurred while reading system files. Run a system diagnostic utility to check your hard disk drive for errors.
Hard Drive Failure
The system has detected a problem with one or more installed IDE / SATA hard disks. It is recommended that you restart the system.
Hard drive critical error. Run a system diagnostic utility to check your hard disk drive for errors. Windows can't find hard disk space. Hard drive error.
They are telling you about critical errors in your hard drive. But the thing is that if there was a critical error related to your hard drive, you would not be to operate your computer at all. Therefore, it is obvious that these messages are not real.
Fake messages are only one of the means that Windows XP Repair employs in order to push you into paying for this absolutely worthless program. It goes as far as hiding your files and then blaming it on some non-existent error that is definitely not present in your system. You should not panic and think that your files have disappeared when you get infected with Windows XP Repair; they are simply hidden from your view.
You should also keep in mind that if you want to deal with Windows XP Repair the right way, you mustn’t delete any files from your Temp folder. That folder will store backups for your shortcuts that will be deleted by Windows XP Repair. You should have noticed already, that some of the program shortcuts are missing from your start menu. This rogue is definitely terribly annoying as it disrupts the work that you are used to perform while using your computer and it is more that obvious that you need to remove Windows XP Repair from your system immediately.
Due to system changes that this rogue performs, it might be hard to remove it manually, especially if you are not used to working with your registry key entries. Therefore, don’t hesitate to invest in a powerful antispyware program that will terminate Windows XP Repair for you smoothly and efficiently.
