Does any removal tool exist to find and delete the " XP Internet Security 2010 " rogue virus ?
Not that i know of but did you run any free online scanners. One you can run is from Trend Micro called House call, link is below. See if that cleans up the mess.
Thanks sbertram for your info. In any case I hope will be developed some removal tool in the wild. It could help many users to kill this annoying rogue virus.
I don't see any removal tool in existence as of now. However please visit this URL for comprehensive step-by-step removal instructions:
There is this too:
Symantec, Senior Information Developer
Enterprise Security, Mobility, and Management - Endpoint Protection

i tried this it wouldnt allow me to intall it kept wanting to reboot and send error replys
I believe both are valuable posts now. One has an automated tool and the other one has step-by-step instructions for expert users.
Just a question about removal this rogue virus, do you have some workaround to restore file association ? For example, after the removal the XLS files are not detected as MS Excel files...
