    If it is...you don't want it. Oh, and you got ripped of.

    Antivirus XP or Antivirus XP 2009 or any derivation thereof...is a virus. It is a scam to get your money and it does not protect you from viruses, as it IS a virus itself.

    If you'd like to get some reliable virus software for your new machine, try Avast. It is free for home use, and it is rated as good as Norton and other professional anti virus software.

    Whatever you do, don't download Antivirus 2009 onto your new machine.

    XP Antivirus 2009 IS a malware application.

    DO NOT INSTALL IT.

    If you already installed it, you can find information on removing it here: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=antivirus+200...

    (note that simply uninstalling it via Programs and Features will NOT actually remove it.)

    You should try AVG or Avast -- both good free antivirus programs.
