PC Antispyware 2010 is another rogue security program from the same family as WinReanimator, PC Security 2009 and Home Antivirus 2010. The bogus application is promoted through the use of Trojan Braviax. This Trojan virus displays fake security alerts about possible or supposedly existing malware infections. The main goal of PCAntispyware 2010 is to coerce you into purchasing the program. You should uninstall PC Antispyware 2010 from your PC if it is already infected.
PC Antispyware 2010 can be also promoted on various misleading websites that provide fake online anti-malware scanners or it may be download and installed manually. Once active, it will be configured to scan your computer each time you log on into Windows. Of course, you can’t change the way this program works. The scan results are false and are being shown only to convince you that your computer is seriously infected. To make things worse, PCAntispyware2010 will display alarmist alerts about computer threats. These alerts look like legitimate ones, so it might be difficult to envisage the difference between them. However, a reputable security application won’t scan your computer without your permission.
What is more, PC_Antispyware 2010 will block antivirus programs to protect itself from being detected and removed. Likely, you won’t be able to download and install other security programs as well.
