My husband got this virus about a year ago and really suffered with it, then my sister got it and took her laptop back to Best Buy for repair, which took a while. A day after she told me about it, I got it too!

Made me really mad, as my husband downloads all sorts of stuff on his computer and I NEVER do.

From Spyware.com:
XP Antivirus 2012 is a deceptive and quite sophisticated rogue anti-spyware program which applies the basic tricks of scams from this category. Though it declares to be a powerful virus remover, keep in mind that this program is the only one that needs to be eliminated because it reports invented viruses. To be more precise, XP Antivirus 2012 firstly will create numerous harmless files that it will drop in the infected computer’s system. Then this scam will pretend to scan your computer and immediately will report numerous viruses that in reality are nothing else but these earlier created files. Some of its alerts may state about Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen threat for making you scared to death and push into purchasing its license which will be offered additionally. Pay attention to the fact, that XP Antivirus 2012 is dangerous and has nothing to do with computer’s protection!

XP Antivirus 2012 program has been manipulating people into believing it is useful software. However, this rogue anti-spyware mostly penetrates into a random computer system without the user’s knowledge and approval and opens the backdoor of the system to let more threats or allow the scammers to reach your personal information. All this is done with a help of Trojans that infect vulnerable systems through fake video codecs and flash updates. As you can see, you should not believe XP Antivirus 2012 and its spyware detection reports as they are fabricated and have in fact nothing to do with the true condition of machine. Don’t buy this software though it will definitely promise to fix your computer, but remove XP Antivirus 2012.
