WINDOWS XP IS MESSED UP


Windows XP Security 2012 is a Virus and you will need to go to the following page which will guide you through the steps you need to take to remove it.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-xp-security-2012

The above page advises you to download a number of tools to use to remove this virus which you would be best advised to download on a different computer and then put them on either a USB memory stick or burn them on to a CD.

If you have difficulty in running these programs because the virus keeps preventing you, then download and burn on to CD a copy of Hiren's Boot CD and then boot your computer with the virus from that CD - start the Mini-XP environment on the Hiren's Boot CD and then run MalwareBytes AntiMalware from the CD and do a full system scan.
Note: Ignore any warnings that may be for the X: drive which is the Boot CD itself - you need to remove any malware found on your main Windows XP drive which is normally your C: drive

I have been reading where XP is susceptible to malware and virus because it is not as safe as vista or windows 7. My question is: Dis this computer come with a free upgrade from XP to the nexr os?


I'm sorry but Microsoft does not provide free upgrades for your computer.
However, the security difference between XP and Vista is not far apart. As long as you have a good anti-virus program, you will be all set.
My recommendations, purchase a paid version of anti-virus for stronger protection such as : Prevx 3.0 antivirus
If you prefer a good free anti-virus (not as good as paid versions), use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Windows xp-2011 anit-virus


The best free anti virus program you can get is one called Avast Anti Virus. You can download it from download.com easily and use it to scan your computer and remove any threat. Another good application is called spybot search and destroy. This detects and removed spyware and malware. You can get this from the same place.

Installing windows xp and computer says ALTDR is compressed


ALTDR.EXE is a virus. You will need to remove it with anti-virus software and then install windows (or you could format the drive before installing windows xp, if you don't have anything on it you want to save).
