ScreenshotInternet Security 2010 is a deceiving application that attempts to scare computer users into purchasing a full version of the Internet Security 2010 program. Internet Security 2010 is related to other rogue anti-spyware programs such as Advanced Virus Remover in the way that it uses misleading popup notifications and bogus system scan results to make computer users believe that they need this security program to remove detected threats.

Computer users must understand that Internet Security 2010 is not able to detect or rid their system of parasites. Internet Security 2010 cannot be trusted. Once detected, it is highly suggested that Internet Security 2010 be removed with a reputable spyware removal tool to prevent damages to the system.

    This is a very malicious program. It appeared on one of my computers and I use AVG to detect it, but it may have been too late. I still cannot get my computer to work and may have to reinstall the OC and lose all the data.

    I've tried to delete IS2010 off of my computer, but it keeps saying that it is protected by other applications. Also, I tried finding the files provided, but I don't know what to put into the search box. Finally, I used spybot, systemsuite, and ad-aware, yet it will not pick up anything related to IS2010.

    Please help me out!

    I've managed to delete all of the IS2010 programs and links, but am still getting "infected" messages when trying to edit my registry and haven't found a way around this yet. Also, what are these MD5s, how do I view them, and what am I supposed to do once I do? thanks for any help, this is virus driving me crazy.

  • Rebecca says:

    Cannot remove files or open windows task manager because this program doesn't allow it....

  • POd says:

    Here is one for everyone out there. My desktop (using laptop for this) was infected with the lovely IS2010. After the many suggestions seen on the internet for Spyware Doctor and other "free" spyware removal tools, programs or whatever they're called, I downloaded Spyware Doctor and ran a scan. It did in fact locate IS2010 along with other garbage and to my shock (sarcastic) in order to have it removed I have to pay...what happened to the "free" removal. Now that my computer is totally disabled I am beginning to think that the J-O's that advertise their "free" removal tools, programs and such are the same tools that are creating the havoc in the first place. To the creator of spyware, malware and future ware's not yet named I have four numbers for you to figure out...7625!

  • Chris Oake says:

    I have IS2010. It has blocked Task manager and Registry Editor and I can't remove the IS2010.exe as it is running continually. Malwarebytes does not seem to pick it up. Is there a straightforward way to get rid of this, maybe after booting in safe mode ? Thanks in advance for any advice. Chris.

  • dannyb says:

    this program has task mgr and regedit disabled ... I cannot open either! Help!

  • Bowezze says:

    You make it sound so easy, the problem is when you try and run task manager you get a WARNING message stating "Application cannot be executed. The file is infected. Please activate your anitvirus software". I even tried running various process killing programs from reputable sites, but none seemed to work. Get tthat message every time, even when I try and run regedit
