Fake Security Center?

Well there is always a fake security adware saying you are infected and some viruses will show as fake, you’ll need the full version of the product (purchasing it) and you are not even infected, you just lose money in a dumb way.

This malware, which is installed after running the XPShieldSetup.exe file, creates a shortcut in the Desktop and in Start menu.

This fake security center simulates an analysis of the computer which warns us that our system is infected. In order to eliminate the malware, we are requested to purchase a certain program.

Peridiocally, it displays popups on the screen reminding us again that the system is infected:

XP Shield

In spite of closing the program, it remains resident in the system:

It is possible that while you are visiting different websites, several popups are displayed informing us that our system is infected or that our computer is not working properly and in order to solve these problems they recommend us to purchase a certain program.

So I just recomend you to recognize this kind of programs and decline downloading or opening them…
