Internet Security 2010 is 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 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

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.

[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.

[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!

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.

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?

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.

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 Spyware Doctor install. Just got it started running now...very slow process.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
