Antivirus 2010. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

Antivirus 2010 represents new generation of rogue security tools. Not only it uses misleading advertisements to gain a purchase, but also it crashes a system and loads fake Blue Screen of Death. The text on BSOD is fabricated and claims that MS Windows recommend purchasing Antivirus2010 to remove spyware from a machine. This recommendation is just a trick of Antivirus 2010 and it shouldn’t be trusted. Fake BSOD looks like this:

“***STOP: 0×000000D1 (0×0000000, 0xF73120AE, 0xC0000008, 0xC000000)
A spyware application has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
SPYWARE.MONSTER.FX_WILD_0×0000000
If this is the first time you’ve seen this Stop error screen, restart you computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Click to make sure your antivirus software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask you software manufacturer for any antivirus updates you might need.
Windows detected unregistered version of Antivirus 2010 protection on your computer. If problem continue, please activate your antivirus software to prevent computer damage and data loss.”

If your computer displays this message, do not trust it and do not pay for Antivirus 2010 malware.

Antivirus 2010 spreads like many similar applications. It is distributed through online advertisements that are disguised as anti-virus scanners. If user clicks on such a banner, he or she is receives false reports about infections detected. Antivirus2010 tries to intimidate people by reporting nonexistent threats in order to get them interested in downloading this application. Sometimes Antivirus2010 might be installed by trojans without user’s consent.
Antivirus 2010 is not a security tool; it is dangerous computer parasite. Avoid downloading or buying this program.

  • Guest

  • Marty Tampa

    Windows Vista allowed me to reset the computer configuration to the previous day, prior to my computer getting infected by this virus, and that solved the problem.

  • Christine

    I called microsoft 1866PCSAFETY and they help you w/ viruses for free. I had this virus and they recommended bleepingcomputer.com to download “malwarebytes”. Ultimately, this program got rid of it.

  • IT Professional

    On the last removal of this virus I did the virus had a diffrent process and file name.
    It was under QW2010.
    Also I found files under C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataQW2010

  • tp

    How do you perform these operations if this malware disengages the use of CMD, REGEDIT & TASKMGR? It also blocks the execution of anti-virus and malware products.

    thanks…

  • Guest

    download does not remove malware, it finds it and then makes you pay to fixit!!!

    Just spent ages trying in vain to get rid of XP Antivirus 2010 trying out all the suggested ideas on forums and guides, but simply doing System Restore to a few days ago sorted it out straight away in a few minutes…

  • Guest

  • <Guest>CandyB

    Thank you for the info. I did not know about un hiding the folders but I did that and I was able to delete all of them and finally got rid of it. Thank again!

  • Guest

    help i like an idiot bought the 89 dollar antvirus and it crashed my computer and wont restart please help is all my bank account stuff at risk!!

  • Guest

    I know it's popular with some to “trash” Microsoft but when I started getting the XP Antivirus pop-ups I called them. The tech walked me through a “system restore” and the problem was resolved…better yet…at no cost.

  • Guest

    Blocks me from running cmd regedit or system restore..is there another way to acces them?

  • Guest

    Thanks for nothing, your removal tool didn't do anything, then I tried to remove the specific files, and my computer basically wouldn't do anything after that. It was easier to reload the whole operating system.

  • Guest

    this thing blocked me from getting access to the internet!! what should i do?????!!!!!!!!

  • Guest

    hey, how do u do a system resotre again and also, since I have wireless interent would i have to reconnect my computer to it?

  • Guest

    your program doent do anything, thanks for wasting my time

  • InfectedMushroomHead

    I've had windows antivirus 2010 on my pc

    anyone thats having a problem with it stopping their internet use or use of any other files, I would reccomend running rkill.exe as this temporarily stops its controll of your pc allowing you to run ant-malware software

  • Guest

    Fixed my computer right up and now I'm back on the Internet. Thank you so much!

  • Guest

    Nope, did not help. I still get the blue screen of 'death'. ” A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer”. blah, blah, blah.
    What a waste of time and reading of “wishful thinking”.

  • Guest

    Can i trust this program?

  • Vorn

    Download malwarebytes' anti-malware onto a flash drive on another computer, boot your infected computer up in safe mode. Install, scan, fix, solve, restart, done!

  • Guest

    how do we get our money back

  • Guest

    None of this works. If you are running XP, you must do a system restore in SAFE MODE. Restoring not in safe mode will not work.
