ByteDefender Security 2010 is a rogue anti-spyware program that gives false reports of threats on the computer and then prompts to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections or make the computer more secure. The rogue program is promoted mostly through the use of Trojans and fake online anti-malware scanners. Byte Defender Security 2010 must be manually installed, but it’s also possible that this fake program comes bundled with other malware and enters your computer without your knowledge. When running, ByteDefender Security 2010 will supposedly scan your computer and display numerous infections that won’t be removed unless you first purchase the program. Of course, you shouldn’t buy it. This is nothing more but a scam. Instead, uninstall ByteDefender Security 2010 from your computer using an automatic removal tool or manually using removal instructions stated below.
And of course, we should mention those very annoying and fake security alerts that pop-ups like every one or tow minutes and states that your computer is in danger. Just like the false scan results, those fake security alerts can be safely ignored. By the way, don’t confuse ByteDefender Security 2010 with BitDefender Total Security 2010 which is a perfectly legitimate software from reputable antivirus company. The homepage of the rogue program is bytedefender. in. Please avoid it, because that website hosts malicious software and you may easily infect your computer. It goes without saying that you should remove ByteDefender Security 2010 from your computer as soon as possible. Please have a look at the removal instructions below. You can remove this virus either manually or with an automatic removal tool.
