Home Antivirus 2010 is a misleading application that may give exaggerated scan results and fake security alerts in order to scare the user of the infected computer into purchasing it. This bogus program is a clone of WinReanimator – rogue anti-spyware application. You must uninstall Home Antivirus 2010 from your computer upon detection.

Home Antivirus 2010 is distributed through the use of Trojan viruses, mainly Trojan-Downloader.braviax. There are about 12 websites that promote this rogue application. Most of the time, those websites provide free online anti-spyware scanners or fake software reviews. Usually, these fake online scanners display bogus information about dangerous infections and redirect a user to the pay page of Home Antivirus 2010. Furthermore, this parasite may be downloaded and installed secretly without your knowledge and permission. It will then display legitimately looking but fake security notifications from Windows Task bar. Once your computer is infected, you will see the following security alert:

“WARNING! Home Antivirus 2010 has found 33 useless and UNWANTED files on your computer!
– 21 of those items are considered critical privacy compromising content
– 9 of those items are considered medium privacy threats
– 3 of those items are considered to be junk content of low privacy threats
Personal data at the reach of anyone’s hand
Internet history records available
Compromising and adult material stored on your system
Chat sessions’ logs and personal Emails easily reachable
You need to register Home Antivirus 2010 to clean the unwanted files found. Click “Register now” button below to obtain the license and remove useless and compromising material from your PC.”

Almost identical security alert uses PC Security 2009.

“Your system was found to be infected with intercepting program. These can log your activity and damage your privacy. Click here for Home Antivirus 2010 spyware removal.”

While running, HomeAntivirus 2010 will imitate your computer scan and display a list of infections that can’t be removed unless you first purchase the program. These infections, though, are all false and can be safely ignored. The rogue program will slow down your computer and block antivirus software. Most of the well known security websites will be blocked too. Your Internet Explorer will be hijacked as well. To make things worse, HomeAntivirus2010 may disable Task manager, system restore and safe mode.

    When I pressed the Start button, it said “new program installed”. So, I went to all programs, and “Home Antivirus 2010”, then I clicked “uninstall”. Why did it have this option? And why did the process stop, yet the pop-ups continue?

  • Guest
