Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 Virus – Removal Instructions

Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 has a name that sounds like something you’d want on your PC, and that’s half the trick. There’s no protection here: Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 is a fake, an imitation security scanning program with a slick user interface that looks just like real antivirus software. It’s considered a member of a family of viruses known as Rogue.FakeRean-Braviax — a collection of extremely dangerous “scareware” programs that pretend to be antivirus solutions, playing off your fear of computer infection to trick you into actually paying money to install more viruses onto your hard drive.

Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 is so insidious that it can change its own name to match your operating system. Running a newer computer with Windows 8? Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 will present itself as being Rango Windows 8 Protection 2014. But no matter the name, it’s the same thing — a slippery rogue that turns you against yourself to unwittingly infect your own PC.


Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 has a particularly insidious approach to propagating itself and doing damage. Here’s how it works: you’re surfing the internet and encounter a web page that informs you that your computer is at risk. Or an illegitimate video-streaming site tells you that additional plugins are needed. In any event, you download something onto your computer from an untrustworthy source, and the something in question is none other than Sirius Win XP Protection 2014. Next it goes to work.

If you run Sirius Win XP Protection 2014, it will fake a scan of your hard drive, reporting hundreds of false positives — according to Rango, your computer is loaded with viruses and the only solution is to buy the full version of the program. If you do, you’re simply shooting yourself in the foot a second time, because not only did you just pay money for a fake program, but now cybercriminals have your credit card information. And if you don’t pay up, Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 will pop up every time you start your computer, begging for money and warning you that the worst will befall if you don’t hand over the cash. In a way, it’s exactly like mob protection, except here the mafia isn’t even going to watch your back. Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 will prevent your legitimate software from connecting to the internet, as well, telling you that the programs are infected — but it’s a trap.
