I have this program on one of my computers called "XP Internet Security". It is definitely not part of "Microsoft Security Essentials". I did a search on this program, and I saw a posting that indicated it is a virus. The posting stated exactly what this program is doing to my computer. When I try to download a legitimate program, it warns me that the program is a serious security threat, and will not allow the action. Because this program is so insidious, I was directed to download some tools to a flash drive on a different PC, then follow some instructions to use this downloaded fix. Has anyone ever heard of this issue, and if so, any idea where I can find a valid solution? The infected computer OS is XP.
