    If it isn’t showing in the add and remove program in your control panel then try these two things..

    1. It will have to been removed from the start up menu,,,go to Start…Run….type in MSCONFIG go to the start-up Tab and the services Tab…uncheck the XP Smart program …then select apply…system will want to reboot…reboot….windows will open saying you made changes to the startup menu…checkmark the bottom left..where it says don’t show again…your done.

    2. Reset Browsers… Go to Start…Control Panel…Internet Options…Advanced Tab..and select Reset. You will need to download Java and Flash again to view video’s.

    Try in this way:

    1. Click Start->Run (or WinKey+R). Input: “command”. Press Enter or click OK.
    2. Type “notepad” as shown in the image below and press Enter. Notepad will open.
    3. Copy and past the following text into Notepad:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[-HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClasses.exe]
    @=””%1″ %*”

    “Content Type”=”application/x-msdownload”

    4. Save file as “exefix.reg” (without quotation-marks) to your Desktop.
    NOTE: choose Save as type: All files
    5. Double-click to open exefix.reg. Click “Yes” for Registry Editor prompt window.
    6. Download Spyware Doctor or other anti-spyware program, update it and run a full system scan.

    xp smart security is a fake antivirus.
    U have 2 use a “real” antivirus n remove it!
    Unclean removal will make ur system crash.
    My dad was annoyed by this crap also.
    He finally removed it with spyware cease.
    Its Online Scan is really powerful.
    Reboot ur pc>press F8 into safe mode with network>run Online Scan of spyware cease (it updates every half hour)>remove it after the scan.

    Furthermore, it can protect you from future infections.
