ScreenshotSystem Adware Scanner 2010 is rather irrelevant to its name because it is not a legitimate scanning application. System Adware Scanner 2010 is similar to other rogue anti-spyware programs such as Live Security Platinum and Security Shield 2012 that through the use of various unexpected popup notifications and bogus system scan results is able to persuade computer users into purchasing a full version of the System Adware Scanner 2010 app.

System Adware Scanner 2010 should never be used for the security needs of your system. System Adware Scanner 2010 does not have the ability to detect or rid your system of spyware, adware or other computer parasites. Removal of System Adware Scanner 2010 is recommended to prevent damage to system files.

    I have never understood why pepole spend money for McAfee, Norton, etc. that always slow down your computer before you even have a problem. In additional words, it's worse than the problem you are trying to prevent! Use the FREE firewall that comes with the computer, the FREE email spam remover and if you every really do get a virus, download a FREE virus remover. If you have a free trial place forward of McAfee for example and it expires, uninstall it and see how much quicker your computer becomes.
