Do you know what XP Protection Center is?
You may find that XP Protection Center (XPProtectionCenter) is advertised as an anti-spyware program for Windows XP but we have confirmed that it is a related to the rogue antispyware program, AntiSpyware XP 2009. Both XP Protection Center and AntiSpyware XP 2009 are malware and we discovered to do nothing but waste a computer user's money and time by pretending to be able to remove spyware or other parasites from your system.
Any program, such as XP Protection Center, that is installed by a Trojan infection and promoted a malicious website such as www.xp-protection-center.com which is where XP Protection Center may also come from. XP Protection Center may be presented on your system through a popup notification with deceiving messages that state your system is infected with spyware. The most deceiving part of these messages is that it suggests that you use XP Protection Center to fix your "issues" or clean your system. This would be a big mistake if you used XPProtectionCenter for any of your security needs.

XP Protection Center is nothing but more fake antispyware software running ramped over the internet.
