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

removal by Olivia Morelli - -   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
Net-Worm.Win32.Mytob.t
Trojan-Spy.Win32.Hookit.11
Trojan-Clicker.HTML.IFrame.g
Virus:W32/Alman.b
Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Agent.sd
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.

[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.

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

  4. mike99 says:
    December 15th, 2009 at 5:12 am

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

    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?

  6. Guest says:
    December 16th, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    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.

    To unlock task manager :

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem
    double click DisableTaskMgr 。
    Input 0

  14. bjones says:
    December 19th, 2009 at 6:12 am

    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?

  15. Guest says:
    December 19th, 2009 at 6:12 am

    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 ]

  16. bjones says:
    December 19th, 2009 at 7:12 am

    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.

  17. bjones says:
    December 19th, 2009 at 8:12 am

    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.

  18. <Guest says:
    December 19th, 2009 at 5:12 pm

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

  19. Guest says:
    December 20th, 2009 at 4:12 pm

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

    December 21st, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    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.

  21. Guest says:
    December 21st, 2009 at 4:12 pm

    unfortunately the computer will no longer log in. thanks.

  22. Guest says:
    December 21st, 2009 at 10:12 pm

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

    December 22nd, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    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.

  25. Guest says:
    December 23rd, 2009 at 10:12 am

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

  26. Guest says:
    December 23rd, 2009 at 10:12 am

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

  27. Guest says:
    December 23rd, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    where is IS2010?

  28. Guest says:
    December 23rd, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    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.

    December 24th, 2009 at 6:12 pm

  39. Guest says:
    December 27th, 2009 at 9:12 am

  48. Guest says:
    December 29th, 2009 at 11:12 am

    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.

  49. Guest says:
    December 31st, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    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

  59. Guest says:

    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!

  60. Guest says:
    January 2nd, 2010 at 1:01 pm

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

  61. Guest says:
    January 2nd, 2010 at 2:01 pm

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

  62. Guest says:
    January 2nd, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    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

  63. Guest says:
    January 2nd, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    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.

    January 4th, 2010 at 2:01 am

    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..

  66. Guest says:
    January 4th, 2010 at 6:01 am

    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.

  67. Guest says:
    January 4th, 2010 at 8:01 am

    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

  68. Guest says:
    January 5th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    sorry, ran the full** scan 3 times

  69. Guest says:
    January 5th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    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

  70. Guest says:
    January 5th, 2010 at 12:01 pm

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

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun “winupdate86.exe”

  71. Guest says:
    January 5th, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    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

  74. Guest says:
    January 6th, 2010 at 11:01 am

    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.

    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.

  82. Emma says:
    January 8th, 2010 at 10:01 am

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

  83. Dastardly says:
    January 8th, 2010 at 10:01 am

    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.

  84. Emma says:
    January 8th, 2010 at 10:01 am

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

    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

  86. christy says:
    January 8th, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    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!

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

  88. Guest says:
    January 10th, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

  127. Guest says:
    January 25th, 2010 at 11:01 am

    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.

    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.

  146. Guest says:
    February 7th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    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 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

  158. Guest says:

    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

  159. Guest says:
    February 22nd, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    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.

  160. Guest says:

    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.

  170. jeff418 says:
    December 21st, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    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.

    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,…
