Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 Virus – Removal Instructions
Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 Virus is one of a number of viruses from the Rango Win family of viruses. It can be contracted to one’s Windows-based computer in a number of ways, most of which can be readily avoided if proper care is taken. Generally speaking, the Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 virus most often latches on to one’s computer when a PC user is visiting websites with questionable reputations. While on these websites, if the user has to download a software to stream some type of video or audio, or if the PC user tries to download content directly from the website on to their computer, Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 can usually be contracted because it is attached to the downloaded file(s).
Furthermore, Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 can also infect one’s computer through e-mail messages. If a user receives an email from a person that they don’t know and clicks a link in the email, clicking that link could start an install process for the Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 virus if it has been attached. Usually, a PC user won’t begin to see symptoms of the Rango Virus for a few days, but then it becomes very difficult to deal with. The Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 virus only affects Windows-based computers, specifically targeting the old Windows XP model operating systems.
Once installed, Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 can cause a user absolute mayhem. The virus parades itself as a sort of antivirus software, claiming that there are all kinds of viruses on the user’s computer. Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 then prevents the user from accessing many of the programs on his or her computer, and requires that the user pay a large sum of money in order to register the antivirus software fully and remove the viruses. In reality, there generally aren’t any viruses on the user’s computer. If there are viruses present, there aren’t nearly as many as Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 would like the PC owner to think.
Worst of all, Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 prevents the user from accessing other programs on the computer by making changes to one’s registry. As such, whenever someone tries to open up a particular program, the registry has been changed so that clicking on the other program will actually initiate the Sirius Win XP Protection 2014 software and will slow one’s computer way down.
