Internet Security 2010. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as InternetSecurity2010, IS2010 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
Internet Security 2010 (also known as IS2010) is a rogue antivirus program. Please read the removal instructions and get rid of this fake program from your computer as soon as possible. InternetSecurity2010 is a clone of Advanced Virus Remover malware. If you take a closer look, you will see that both programs use the same graphical user interface. This rogue application is promoted through the user of Trojans. Most of the time, Trojans have to be manually installed and may come from various misleading websites, for example fake online anti-malware scanners. When running such media player processes as QuickTimePlayer.exe, AdvancedDVDPlayer.exe, tvp.exe, realplay.exe, windvd.exe, winamp.exe, setup_wm.exe, LA.exe, PowerDVD.exe, mplayerc.exe, wmplayer.exe, Internet Security 2010 additionally displays many fake error messages, such as:

Windows can`t play the folowing media formats: AVI;WMV;AVS;FLV;MKV;MOV;3GP;MP4;MPG;MPEG;MP3;AAC;WAV;WMA;CDA;FLAC;M4A;MID. Update your video and sound codec to resolve this issue!

Internet Security 2010 imitates a system scan and reports many false system security threats. Then it will redirect its victims to where it is asked to pay for a full version of the program to remove those security issues or infections. However, do not buy it - this is a scam.

When running, Internet Security 2010 will also display fake security alerts. Those alerts will state that IS2010 has found critical vulnerabilities on your computer. The rogue program displays these infections:

The supposed infections are usually detected in Windows System or System32 folder. If you decide to remove these infections with Internet Security 2010, you will get an activation windows [Figure 3] with further information what to do. This fake window states that application cannot be executed, the file is infected and a currently installed version of InternetSecurity2010 is for trial purpose only. You have to buy an activation code to remove the infections, which of course do not even exist.

Internet Security 2010 will also display fake notifications from Windows Taskbar. The fake notifications state:

System warning!
Intercepting programs that may compromise your privacy and harm your system has been detected on your PC. It's highly recommended you scan your PC right now.

System warning!
You've just launched an IS2010 Setup program. Please wait for 1-2 minutes till installation will complete.

At the same time you will be taken to the pay page of the InternetSecurity 2010. It is shown in the image below [Figure 5]. As you can see, it costs almost $50 dollars and even state that now they include AVG Firewall and Email Protection for free. That's obviously not true.

Comments on Internet Security 2010

Indeed it works! Just rename it as "TheVirusCreatorGoToHell". Reboot the PC and delete immediately!
This site helped me a lot -

You can probably try this-

step 1 - find the folder for "issecurity shortcut icon (you can rigthclick to open file location)
Step 2 - rename file "issecurity" to any filename
Step 3 - Shift delete the entire folder (this will not allow you to delete file at first - follow the next steps)
Step 4 - restart your PC
STep 5 - find the folder for "issecurity icon (you can rigthclick to open file location)
Step 6 - Shift delete the entire folder (this time it will allow you to delete the file) - then you can delete the shortcut icon on your desktop

hope this works,...
New Strain
this site was no help at all. theres a new strain but it has the same interface. its new name is

documents and settingsall usersISECURITY.exe

i deleted it an all instances in the registry and voila.
Im surprised they didnt include this but USE SAFE MODE or COMMAND PROMPT mode. It wont even bother you when you try to get rid of it.
I did the had to load up windows in safe mode to be able to do restore and this takes about 10-12 minutes to finish. This is only a part of a fix. It does come back, so there has to be more to fix this. Right now we did the restore and loaded windows regularly and the went on internet and downloaded free and installed it. Shut down internet and now running full scan. After full scan is done we are going back to safemode and running it again. This is going to take awhile, will try to let you all know what happens. Meanwhile let me know if you all try something that actually works.
I did that to and a few days went by and now its back. So that didnt fix it.
Theres a terrific amount of konlwedge in this article!
