Remove XP Internet Security and isolate your PC from viruses

XP Internet Security is going to isolate compromised computer system bit by bit. As a consequence, you should not postpone XP Internet Security removal, if applicable.
The isolation means that a compromised PC will be deprived of access to computer networks, including Internet. Access will be denied to software installed, too.
