Antivirus Vista 2010 is a rogue anti-virus program that is usually advertised through the use of pop ups and fake security alerts that state that your computer is infected and that you should run an online anti-malware scan. Once the rogue program is installed, it will claim to scan your computer for malware and display a list of false threats just to confirm that your computer is infected with malware (usually Trojans and computer worms). Then it will ask you to pay for a full version of the program in order to remove the threats which as we already know don't even exist. Most importantly, don't buy it. If you did, then please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Next, please read removal guide below and remove Antivirus Vista 2010 from your computer manually for free or with an automatic removal tool.

Antivirus Vista 2010 scam is very irritating and unfortunately can't be removed as easy as you would remove regular software. That's because it uses quite effective self-protection methods and techniques to make the removal process complicated, especially for people who don't know much about computer. First of all, it blocks almost all legitimate software; of course it disables security software in the first place. Manual removal can be complicated only if you can use Task Manager and Registry Editor, unfortunately it disables these tools too. What is more, Antivirus Vista 2010 will flood your computer with fake security alerts, firewall warnings and other similar pop-ups. It will also hijack Internet Explorer and redirect you to various misleading websites or block access to security related websites. Now, let's see how to get rid of Antivirus Vista 2010 virus?

You should add that in order for this to work, you need to do it on another computer, and save the exefix file to a zip drive, and plug it in to the infected computer. Thank you soooo much for the advice!!!!

System restore may also work, but after all you should still scan your computer with a legitimate anti-spyware program.
