Latterly, widely known Antivirus 2010 was noticed to be using quite irregular scheme for its distribution.  Now scammers connected to this rogue anti-spyware, which has been reported on our website earlier, have started to send misleading emails announcing about some kind of newest version of Antivirus 2010.

Of course, this letter distributes misleading link to some scam website producing Antivirus 2010, detected by trustful security programs as FraudTool.Win32.Antivirus2010. Categorized as rogue anti-spyware, this program starts usually displaying fake alerts about some potential cyber threats detected and then offers to buy its licensed version as the only solution to remove them. Never fall into installing and even purchasing this program and once you notice it on PC run a full system scan to remove Antivirus 2010.
