PC Antispyware 2010


One of the most hateful things in the web is the scareware. A scareware is actually some sort of malware that will fool the computer user into thinking that his system is infected with a very deadly virus, then it will force the user into buying a product that can "remove" the infection. You can usually get this scareware through trojans or by visiting some rouge websites. Of course the scareware will install itself into your system without you knowing it and then create a number of files and registry values and then reports to you that some deadly malware have been detected in your system. If you get a message that looks like coming from a scareware, don't panic, your system could be showing warnings from a scareware like PC Antispyware 2010. I am saying that don't panic because your system is not actually infected. All you need to do is remove PC Antispyware 2010 and soon the annoying warnings and the naggings about buying the paid version of PC Antispyware 2010.
