Antivirus2010 – Don’t Fall For This One!
Antivirus2010 is a rogue antispyware program that finds its way into your computer system and wreaks havoc, partly by compromising your personal information, and also by affecting your computers performance, by using all your system resources hijacking your browser. Antivirus2010 will probably also relieve you of some cash in the process.
Antivirus2010 normally gets onto your machine via a Trojan such as Vundo or Zlob, or sometimes through a suspect video codec download. But however it arrived, what’s important now is to get it gone as soon as humanly possible! Probably the first thing you’ll see from Antivirus2010 or others like it is that your system will significantly slow, and your browser will be hijacked by this program that is running a “scan” of your machine, and then gives you with a long list of what it deems “threats” that it warns need to be taken care of right now, or else you are at risk of doing permanent damage to your computer by allowing all sorts of viruses and spyware to run rampant.
There is just enough truth there to make the con work. It is true that you need to take care of these kinds of threats, but in reality it’s Antivirus2010 that is the problem! Antivirus2010 won’t do anything helpful at all, and in fact, will only succeed in bringing more problems to your machine, including other spyware, adware and fraudware that will steal your personal information, and compromise your machine even further.
Don’t make the mistake of trying to get rid of Antivirus2010 or any programs like it by yourself. You will almost fail at this, and you’ll be right back where you started. There are way too many files that are hidden too well to make this a viable option for getting Antivirus2010 off your machine before it reconstitutes itself.
It’s always a much better idea to use a trusted antispyware software solution, and the best one I’m aware of is ZookaWare PC Cleaner, which comes with a 100% spyware removal guarantee.
