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!

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.
