Vista AntiMalware 2010 is a rogue anti-malware program that uses exaggerated and false scan results in order to scare you into purchasing the phony program. This rogue program is advertised via fake online scanners that state your computer has many security problems. It may be also promoted on popular social networks. Once installed, Vista AntiMalware 2010 will imitate a system scan and report numerous false computer threats.

As a typical scareware it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections.
