Vista Antivirus Pro 2010 is a rogue anti-spyware program that is distributed through the use of trojans and other malware. Usually, this fake program comes from fake online scanners, bogus video sites, and harmful pdf files or bundled with other malicious software. Once installed, Vista Antivirus Pro 2010 will simulate a system scan and display a list of infections that can’t be removed unless you first purchase the program. That wouldn’t be so bad, but it actually asks you to pay for a full version of the program in order to remove non-existing infections. And that’s my friends is nothing more but a scam. What is more, VistaAntivirus Pro 2010 will display many fake security warnings to make you think that your computer is infected with computer worms and trojans or that you are under attack by an Internet virus. One of the fake security alerts states:

Tracking software found!
Your PC activity is being monitored. Possible spyware infection. Your data security may be compromised. Sensitive data can be stolen. Prevent damage now by completing security scan.

While running, Vista Antivirus Pro 2010 will also block antivirus and anti-spyware programs in order to protect itself. It will block security related websites and display fake warning in Internet Explorer claiming that nearly all websites that you going to visit are infected.
