Antivirus PC 2009 is a fake anti-virus application. Please read more about this malicious software and how to remove it from your computer manually for free or with an automatic removal tool. The rogue application enters a computer with the help of Trojan virus known as Trojan.Win32.Rozena.xi [Kaspersky Lab]. Usually, this Trojan comes from fake online anti-malware scanners or other fake websites. Then it downloads other files from Internet and installs AntivirusPC2009. Once installed, Antivirus PC 2009 will create several harmless files on your computer and later detect those files as system security threats or serious infections. The misleading application will be configured to start automatically when Windows starts. When running, it will imitate a system scan and report premeditated and obviously false scan results. AntivirusPC 2009 uses ClamAV virus database, so the names of the reported infections will likely be real. However, that doesn't mean that your computer is actually infected. It's just a trick used to make this whole scam more persuasive.
