Windows 7 Internet Security 2010

Vrius Name: Windows 7 Internet Security 2010 behaves in a similar fashion to its relatives Win 7 Antispyware 2010 and XP Internet Security 2010 by trying to trick users into buying a license for the software. It is a rogue anti-spyware application that gets downloaded via Trojans that enter the user’s system from dangerous websites. Once installed, Windows 7 Internet Security 2010 proceeds to do fake scans on the system and to display a large number of fake virus alerts, often as pop-ups from the Windows taskbar. It disables the Windows firewall as well as any legitimate virus scanning software that the user may have installed. This rogue software also asks the user to pay for the ‘full’ version of Windows 7 Internet Security 2010, claiming that the currently installed ‘trial’ version is incapable of removing all the detected fake ‘threats’ from the user’s system.  However, the so-called ‘full’ version of Windows 7 Internet Security 2010 is just as incapable of cleaning your system as its ‘trial’ version, and under no circumstances should you allow yourself to be tricked into paying for this fake software.
