Internet Security 2010. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Olivia Morelli - -   Also known as InternetSecurity2010, IS2010 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12

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 vs-codec-pro.net 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.

Internet Security 2010 graphical user interface
[Figure 1. Internet Security 2010 graphical user interface]

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:

Rogue:W32/XPAntivirus.gen!
AdWare.Win32.Zwangi
Trojan-Spy.HTML.Visafraud.a
Worm:W32/Agent
Trojan-PSW.W32/Steam
Net-Worm.Win32.DipNet.d
Trojan-Dropper:W32/Trojan-Dropper
Worm:W32/Downadup.gen
Trojan-Downlaoder:W32/Fakerean.gen!A
Net-Worm.Win32.Mytob.t
Trojan-Spy.Win32.Hookit.11

Email-Worm.Win32NetSky.q
riskware.Win32
Rootkit.win32.agent

Internet Security 2010 - fake security alert
[Figure 2. Internet Security 2010 – fake security alert]

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 - activation pop up
[Figure 3. Internet Security 2010 – activation pop up]

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.

Internet Security 2010 - fake notifications
[Figure 4. Internet Security 2010 – fake notifications]

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.

Internet Security 2010 - purchase page
[Figure 5. Internet Security 2010 – purchase page]

There should be no doubts about this fake application. It’s totally useless and even dangerous. Please use the removal guide below and remove IS2010 manually for free or use an automatic removal tool for this infection. If you have inadvertently purchased this bogus software, contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Also note that this infection can block antivirus software. If you can’t launch an automatic removal tool, please end the Internet Security 2010 process first. Open Task Manager or use Process Explorer and terminate IS2010.exe. Good luck!

    spyware doctor did NOT get rid of internet 1010 for me, i purchased it. ai lready had a copy on my pc but upgraded to no avail. now what???????

  • rodi

    Hello, you got different strain of trojans in your PC. Are you sure you have updated the definitions and they updated successfully? Also, you can check other programs, do not pay for them till you see that they detect parasite first. Some parasites need more than one tool to remove successfully.

  • Guest

    Internet Security 2010 has disabled my task manager, regedit and cmd. How do I follow these steps then?

  • mike99

    Have you tried Process Explorer? Just read the last paragraph in Internet Security 2010 description. Good luck!

  • Guest

    This virus has taken over my computer and when I tried to use Spybot to remove it I was told to reboot. When I try to reboot it prevents me from logging back on to my computer. What now?

  • Guest

    If regedit won't run, go to Windows directory and rename regedit.exe to regedit.com – You need to set folder view option to show system hidden files.
    Then follow the above instructions.

  • Guest

    Well I just temintated IS2010… I hope that it works!

  • Guest

    I can't seem to delete this file…how do you get rid of IS2010?

  • Guest

    cannot remove file because it is currently in use, and it blocks me from opening task manager so I cant end the processes

  • Guest

    cannot remove file because it is currently in use, and it blocks me from opening task manager so I cant end the processes true what now?

  • Guest

    *i have unlocked my task manager,but it won't open,says its infected?anything else i can do

  • j

    its does'nt work,

  • gary

    To unlock task manager :

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem
    double click DisableTaskMgr 。
    Input 0

  • bjones

    I've tried downloading the main one and two of the alternatives along with the malware product and none have worked yet. My taskmgr is blocked (infection message) and it stops me when I try to boot up in safe mode.

    Any ideas?

  • Guest

    To unlocked the task manager :
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem

    在右窗格, 連按兩下 DisableTaskMgr 。
    [ 數值資料 ] 方塊中鍵入 0 , 然後再按一下 [ 確定 ]

  • bjones

    When I try taskmgr, regedit or cmd from the run option, I get the bogus “file infected” msg. Any other ways in?

    I did get a download from the 3rd alternate site and did a STOPzilla install. Just got it started running now…very slow process.

  • bjones

    It appears to be working. It's found 9 threats and 647 infections after scanning 8%. Most of the “infections” are tracking cookies. It has found InternetSecurity2010, so it looks promising. Will post when complete.

  • <Guest

    how is this any better than the actual virus? this is a scan process only, it won't delete the program, right?

  • Guest

    It worked for me. Didn't want to purchase, but the freeware I was using didn't work. It's slow,but effective. -bjones

  • Kevingcat

    Cannot access some sites such as facebook. This caused by the infection, or what? I get a red box that says RESTRICTED SITE due to your security Prefences, and below it says Your System is Infected Please activate your AntiVirus program.

  • Guest

    unfortunately the computer will no longer log in. thanks.

  • Guest

    Will NOT work. Disables task manager. Disables all programs. You have to wipe your hd. PERIOD.

  • <Guest>kmart

    How do I get my CPU fixed once infected and no longer can use CPU?

  • www.hd0.de

    Before you restart Windows, you have to reset the key:
    HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogonUserinit
    from winlogon86.exe
    to userinit.exe
    If don't, windows performs an automatic logout.

  • Guest

    Try Combofix.exe you can find it on bleepingcomputers. it does remove it and others like it. about the only thing that works

  • Guest

    My computer will no longer log in too; it perform an automatic log out. And nows? Safe mode no works.

  • Guest

    where is IS2010?

  • Guest

    If Task Manager is disabled, you can get ProcessXP and run it from a USB drive or any media and it will allow you to kill the process(es) that keep the malware running. Also, disable System Restore and Remote Access before or after doing all the clean-up to avoid recurring infection.

  • j-sPILLThanx d

    Thanx for tellin me that it didn't work, but im stil screw in up

  • Madmike

    You gotta wipe your Harddrive FINAL. You can't do anything no point just wipe your HD.

  • Adam -Sigh-

    Got this virus too, tried using malwarebytes + avg. Both of them said they removed it all but it keeps coming back. Only option left is wiping the hardrive. Registry and task manager won't open.

  • Guest

    It worked just now. Merry Christmas

  • Zama

    Its a christmas Miracle! thank you guys sooooo much for this info. I was getting ready to wipe my drive but just following the info saved me from having to do that. Thank you again, Bless.

  • Guest

    this absolutely does not work. i cant open task manager, system restore or anything that could help.

  • Guest

    It does work, just rename them taskmgr.com, regedit.com, etc.

  • Madmike

  • Guest

  • Billb

    This sucker is a b**ch. It got on my media center pc and it soon got to the point where the system wouldn't even boot to the desktop. I had to wipe the hard drive and reload everything. It even came up when I tried safe mode (Win 7)

  • Guest

    I can't open the Task manager or the registry. This is bu****it. I really don't wanna wipe my hard drive but it looks like I don't have a choice.

  • angela

    Cristian de Argentina.

  • Evan

    Okay, well I tried malwarebytes and deleting some stuff but not everything listed was there. I think it has taken over a lot and now It is not even showing my icons when I log in! help me please!

  • Guest

    Use Windows Defender if you have it, and then prevent it from initializing on startup… you have to go to “show startup programs for all users” You can then use regedit… and use that to unlock the control panel.

  • Guest

    delete it from the registry..
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
    it will say internet security 2010..
    just delete it..
    and delete the one in C: program files INTERNET SECURITY 2010

  • Guest

    i tried malwarebytes removal and then the screen went black and the computer rebooted. Now i cant even open windows anymore. not even in safemode. eother the computer reboots or shuts down completely

    What can i do
    Do i have to wipe the harddrive

  • Guest

    i deleted everything, but my internet still dosen't work, please help me

  • Guest

    Can't open taskman or regedit…
    How do I get rid of this damned thing?

  • Guest

    This fake antivirus got into another computer I have and won't allow me to get into internet so to remove it. What can I do to remove it without internet connection?

  • dfdfkdm

    yeha format guys

  • Guest

    interestingly enough, spydoctor would not remove without ourchase. purchased and now computer will do ZILCH! Had Macafee and now that won't work. What kind of bogus stuff is this?

  • Guest

    hey guys is this tool really work?

  • Guest

    Just got this on my computer. What causes it?

  • Guest

    Thanks so much this worked greatjust have to look for the icon and hit kill!

  • Guest

    That comment above about resetting the login registry before rebooting IS REALLY IMPORTANT! What can we do, when the login process is undefined? I hope the system maintainers here have a follow-up, and update to the registry-editing process!

  • Guest

    I've run my malware but that didn't seem to make a difference. I can't get online. Any suggestions? Thanks

  • Guest

    im on my roomates comp trying to figure this out bcuz i cant get any internet to even use the malware.

  • Guest

    Another way to get this to stop is to install Search & Destroy, there is a utility under the advanced option that runs like the Task Manager that will allow you to kill the winupdate86.exe program

  • Guest

    Before you restart Windows, you have to reset the key:
    HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogonUserinit
    from winlogon86.exe
    to userinit.exe,

    (yes you need to comma)

    This is important to do otherwise it will keep coming back.

  • guest 101

    This virus has block my internet so I have had to download the program to remove on another computer n when I try to install it on the infected pc it says it needs to connect to the net to properly downloadinstall can anyone give me some advice on what to do now ??? Would very much apreciated (=

  • Guest

    Why is Google so keen to come down on some blogger making fun of a super model but they cannot help stop this sort of crap.. Seriously..

  • Guest

    I deleted the files first. You have to delete them before the virus initializes which I accomplished by creating a batch file on the desktop and as soon as the computer comes up after reboot I ran the batch file. This stops the virus from loading. You can then finish the other cleanup items.

  • Guest

    If you cannot logon after cleaning up the virus you must edit the registry keyvalue USERINIT by using an offline app. You can use BartPE or PCRegedit

  • Guest

    sorry, ran the full** scan 3 times

  • Guest

    I downloaded Superantispyware professional trial version and ran the fukk scan 3 times, it found it and removed it the third time and my computer works fine now

  • Guest

    From BartPE, how do I get to the registry to fix the key?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun “winupdate86.exe”

  • Guest

    I downloaded PCregedit and added the key and value in, but it still does not boot all the way into windows. Gets to the point of loading the icons and then logs out back to welcome screen

  • Dimitri

    Thanks for this,i knew it was fake,didnt know how to get rid of it though!
    Rock on.

  • Guest

    I managed to kill start-up reg in ccleaner. now ill just reboot and delete all files related to it

  • Guest

    I just got it. I couldn't get online at all without booting into safe mode. It has imbedded itself as an Administrator in my computer somehow disabling task manager. This has proven to make it's removal tricky.

  • Guest

    can anybody kill the jerk that put the is2010 on my computer? pls i pay u

  • Guest

    very thank you for this program that realy helped me to remove the viruses from my computer(mergim hajrizi,novolan,vushtrri,kosovo,europe)

  • Emma

    , oh no it came back ): after like 2 minutes

  • Emma

    I used Hijackthis to remove this. If you don't have it already and unable to downlaod becasue of the mofo IS2010 then use this.

  • Guest

    Hijackthis completely removed all of it?

  • Emma

    Yep, firefox works. Chrome, doesn' work btw

  • Emma

    I can't get to the internet on the computer that is infected with this, it says the file is infected, however i will try and use firefox, which helped me with the Anti Virus Live prgram. So i'll try this.

  • Emma

    I'm so annoying….Shouldn't the Fake virus protection things be deleted in existence? Isn't it illegal or something ?

  • Dastardly

    I can't seem to find the files or the “S” folder… although an “S” and sub “P” do appear in the regedit. Is this a part of it?

    i am still unable to change my desktop after removing the NoEDTWallpaper or whatever in the registry.

  • Emma

    I think i killed it with ad-aware and hijackthis o-o i dowloading this right now.

  • bruce.Li

    Internet Security 2010 has evolved… instead of using winupdate86.exe, it now uses winupdate32.exe and it has smss32.exe also running… just found this out today

  • christy

    i had this on my comp and after hours of failed attempts i finally restored back to 3 days ago and i no longer have the virus. i cant believe thats all it took!

  • abn

    How do you kill it if it has blocked Task Manager?

  • Guest

    IF YOU CANT GET INTO TASK MANAGER… just google how to enable disable task manager and theres a guide that gets you into some group permissions to edit

  • Ramya

    I got that rogue completely removed from my PC using Malwarebytes – Anti Malware software, downloaded from the link given above… Thanks a lotttttt for this…….

  • Shapeshifter.

    Grrr… That lil Pucker. I hate these litle things….

  • chris

    I don't know why but when I deleted my AVG 9.0 the virus went away. Maybe IS 2010 runs off a glich in AVG.

  • chris

    I don't know why but when I deleted my AVG 9.0 the virus went away. Maybe IS 2010 runs off a glich in AVG.

  • Guest

    I'm not sure if this is a way to get rid of the virus but when I deleted AVG 9.0 the virus was gone. The virus may just ride on a vulnerability of AVG.

  • tennesseean

    i've deleted this malware using malwarebytes

  • Just a Swede

    I use'd malwarebytes to delete it too,now that threat has gone by west

  • Guest

  • Guest

    One other thing, I turned off Active Desktop, as well, that way my wallpaper will never get hijacked again…

  • Guest

    Logged off to deal with it later. Now evey time I try to log in its automatically logs me back off. Any suggestions. Its the same way in safe mode.

  • Guest

    so does this really work well? the download/ u know you become very cautios after having this….

  • Guest

  • Guest

    Booted up in safe mode, then downloaded and ran malwarebytes. All fixed!

  • Guest

    This internet security 2010 is blocking any anti virus software from being downloaded.

  • Guest

    I, too, am not able to login to WinXP via the usual means (Normal Logon, Safemode, etc). I'm hoping there are alternatives that exist. Please amend this page to include a way around this, if one exists. If so, then I'd be more than happy to try out your anti-spyware endorsements. Thanks.

  • Guest

    if u cant get in using safe mode, etc hit F8 (i forgot the exact option but it shud be above debugging mode) it might take u a few tries but it works if u can t get in at all… from there u shud be able to get into safe mode

  • Guest

  • Chris

    In my case the problem with no internet access and the application error in svchost “The instruction at 0x7d4caa9b referenced memory at — ” has been solved with START | RUN | typing CMD and clicking OK (or RUN), then typing
    “netsh winsock reset” and restart the machine.

  • Guest

    I used spyware doctor and OK! 🙂

  • Guest

    I removed it using Malwarebytes anti malware, but now I can't play any media, wether on Windom's media player, or VLC or even web based players (like youtube). It play fine for a few minutes but then the whole PC freezes and I have to restart from the tower, anyone can help with this??

  • Guest

    WIndows defender did the job immediately!

  • Guest

    wow this sucks i went to look for guitar tabs and i ended up with this, any suggestions?

  • Guest

    I used spybot search & destroy and turned the virus off so I could remove it from the program files. be sure uf u delete it manually to delete all other antivirus software you yourself did not upload!

  • Guest

    this is the 2nd time this has happened to me and the first time I found someone on here that cold me to go into the C: and type something (I can't remember) and then I had to reset my computer to a previous date/time and it worked completely….but I can't find the instructions again :-0

  • Guest

    please i want this internet security 2010 message to be removed from my system

  • Guest

    ….it stopped me from going to task manager!

  • Guest

    I had to boot up my computer in SAFE mode and search for the IS2010.exe and delete it from the search window. This allowed me to take back control of my computer and run the spyware program. I'm in the process now of trying to remove IS2010…wish me luck.

  • Harte-Hanks-JMC

    well, Thanks but no thanks. This sucks. The troubleshooting is good but it's incomplete. if you deleted the files, chances are, you will no longer boot your computer up. hehehe.

  • Guest

    Please help me remove this I cant even get on myspace or anything with this on there

  • rltolton

    IS2010 has disabled my task manager. I cannot stop this using the directions here. Does anyone have a way to kill this thing?

  • Guest

    This virus now prevents you from accesing the task manager or the regedit feature in windows also it will not let you manualy delete the file since you are unable to open the task manger to end the process.

  • <Guest>BetterThanTheRest

    Norton is great if you can afford it.

  • <Guest>SpyHunter

    Wiping your hard drive doesnt work either. Its just a waste of time.

  • Guest

    My computer boots up and immediately boots off and freezes with background and no icons. Same in safe mode and any options in safe mode. Running XP and had AVG free edition prior to Internet 2010. Any ideas on how to remove? Thx….

  • Guest

    i have no idea what your saying on how to get rid of this thing.simpler instructions please????

  • Stolgrove

    Got it removed in 5 minutes, anyone want a copy for reverse engineering purposes? I'm still decoding the .dll file. if your having issues, go to command prompt before running Windows

  • Guest

    any help about Internet security 20 10 my pc do not start again, it freeze by starting windows

  • Guest

    RUN Malwarebytes Anti Malware in safe mode worked 2 times for me

  • Guest

    This virus doesn't allow you to kill a file as it does not allow you to run Task Manger.

  • Guest

    Go into safe mode, remove file in c:/program files called antivirus protection( not your actual virus protection that you use i.e. norton, AVG, and run your virus protection

  • dave

    does anybody know forsure if wiping your harddrive clean forsure doesnt work??? i dont wanna waste my time…….and if so, why wouldnt that work outta curiosity

  • Guest

    Malwarebytes Anti Malware worked like a charm. The damn virus went down fighting, saying it was blocking me as I was killing it.

  • Guest

    Can't start up my computer in Safe Mode – Can't start up in normal mode… Where on earth did this stupid thing come from! Help please 🙁

  • gator

    the Malware bytes program worked for me…. i had problems with similar spyware in the past and it has done a great job. just make sure to have it up to date

  • Guest

    First you should check if you have an earlier System Restore point in Windows. It is a sure method to get rid off this malware program.
    Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore

  • Guest

    bad softwear like virus

  • Guest

    well system restore and taskmgr doesn't work, i guess this is the only way to do it.

    It even blocked my Taskmanager, so I couldn't end IS2010.exe.
    Rebooting my pc in save mode, gave only the Windows Explorer.
    Lucky I had STOPzilla to help remove it. After going back to a restorepoint, IS2010 was gone.

    I'll download the remover up here to be sure, now.

  • Guest

    I just spent $30. on STOPzilla and then had it do a scan and clean my pc. It took a total of about two hours. And the xpis2010 is STILL THERE!!! It guaranteed me that it would get rid of it. Now i'm out 30 bucks and still have the nasty infection! = (

    I was infected by this rogue program. The main issue with me was that my task manager and my registry editing tools had been disabled by the virus. I ended up having to reinstall Windows.

    muy bueno sin comentarios

    I had the same problem I wasn't able to get in to task manager or the registry as the user logged in. But if you hold shift and do a runas you can run it as a different user and kill the processes and get your machine cleaned up. I edited my msconfig as well just to be sure

  • Guest

    Couldn't get STOPzilla to run or remove it manually – task manager was disabled by the virus (downloaded by my friend after clicking on an email from UPS about an undelivered parcel). But Malwarebytes Anti Malware shifted it no problem. Fantastic. Thanks for the info

  • Guest

    To get to your C drive, make the program send you to the internet. Then press F11.. This will give you an internet explorer bar. You can then get to your PC (C drive) and also to other sites to download Malwarebytes to remove it.

    It's a pretty stupid virus and is actually pretty easy to remove.

  • Guest

    this genious of a virus pops up an infected message box when you try to get to task manager. however if u leave the message box up and ctrl alt delete again, the tm will come up, at least it did for me. killed is2010.exe, renamed the file in program files, then went about cleanup.

    Theres a terrific amount of konlwedge in this article!

  • jeff418

    I did that to and a few days went by and now its back. So that didnt fix it.

  • jeff418

    I did the restore….you 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 malwarebytes.com 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.

  • Patrick

    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.

  • 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.

  • Lee

    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,…

    Indeed it works! Just rename it as “TheVirusCreatorGoToHell”. Reboot the PC and delete immediately!
