XP Home Security 2011 and 2012 Simple Removal

Hey, look who’s still around (and updated)!  It’s our good ole rogue XP Home Security now full updated for 2011 and 2012.  This version that I encountered disabled the customers Norton Antivirus 2010 and prevented them from loading any .exe or website.

Here’s how I quickly removed XP Home Security 2011 or 2012:

  1. Used RKill.scr (the .com .exe and .pif versions were killed by the rogue).  Rkill.scr terminated the rogue.
  2. Installed Malwarebytes, updated, scanned and removed all items.
  3. Turned off proxy settings in internet explorer.
