Antivirus PC 2010. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as AntivirusPC2010, AntivirusPC 2010 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12
Antivirus PC 2010 is yet another rogue antivirus program. It pretends to be a legitimate security application that will check your computer for for malware. In reality, though, it will display false threats on your computer and constantly display fake security warnings. This fake program is advertised through the use of fake online anti-malware scanners and pop-ups that appear when visiting malicious websites. These pop-ups state that your computer has security risks and that you should download and install Antivirus PC 2010 to remove found infections and to ensure full system protection. This is obviously nothing more but a scam. Don't install it and most importantly don't purchase this bogus program. Instead, uninstall Antivirus PC 2010 from your computer as soon as possible if you are already infected.

When installed, Antivirus PC 2010 will be configured to start automatically when you boot your computer. When the program starts it will scan your computer and display various malware infections on your computer. These risks, though, cannot be removed until you first purchase the software. While the rogue program is running you will also see many fake security alerts and pop-ups claiming that your PC is badly infected and that your computer might be attacked from a remote computer. The bad news is that AntivirusPC2010 will blocks legitimate programs and hijack web browsers. These are self protection methods used by nearly all rogue programs.

It goes without saying that instead of purchasing this program you should remove it. Please use the removal instructions below to remove Antivirus PC 2010 from your computer either manually or with an automatic removal tool. Related files: av.exe
