To remove XP Home Security 2011, go to safe mode with networking, then quickly create a new user account, log in to the new account, download combofix and run it, the computer will be restarted, wait until combofix finish, download malwarebytes, install it and run it, download ccleaner and clean up all temp files.
Good luck
