How To Remove Antivirus Pro 2010 - (Uninstall Guide)
Article by George Norman
On 21 Oct 2009
Antivirus Pro 2010 is a rogue antispyware software application that is currently being distributed by a spam campaign. The computer user receives a spam message with the subject Conflicker.B Infection Alert that claims to originate from Microsoft. In the message the user is informed that a new variant of the Conficker worm has been detected online; to stay safe he is advised to download the attached file. The attached file is nothing else than a Trojan that will install Antivirus Pro 2010 on the user’s system – without the user’s consent obviously.

Since Antivirus Pro 2010 is a rogue, it cannot detect and remove malware threats from your system. What it can do is scare you into thinking your system is infected. In this regard it will run fake system scans and detect numerous infected files on it. The system scan is fake and the threats detected on it are phony. The goal here is to scare you out of some money. Because if you believe your system is infected, you will believe that Antivirus Pro 2010 can remove the infection. Just that Antivirus Pro 2010 will not do a thing unless you pay for a license. Do not pay! You will be paying for a software application that does noting, that solves a fictitious infection.
