RST Antivirus 2010 Removal Guide

RST Antivirus 2010 is a rogue antivirus application that pretends to be a legitimate antivirus program in order to trick users in to paying for a software license. RST Antivirus 2010 gets propagated throughout the internet through Trojans that get downloaded from malicious websites which promote fake virus scanners. Once installed, RST Antivirus 2010 proceeds to load as a startup service and to disable essential Windows services such as Task Manager, Registry Editor and System Restore. By disabling these services, RST Antivirus 2010 ensures that it does not get deleted manually by the user. Therefore, when you try to manually remove RST Antivirus 2010, you should restart your computer in Safe Mode. RST Antivirus 2010 normally performs a large amount of fake virus scans on your computer and reports that the system is infected with a torrent of fake Trojans, viruses and other malicious software. The aim of this is to convince you that you should purchase the ‘full’ version of RST Antivirus 2010 by putting you under the impression that the currently installed ‘trial’ version is incapable of removing the detected ‘threats’ from the system. However, please note that the so-called ‘full’ version of RST Antivirus 2010 is just as incapable of scanning or cleaning any viruses from your computer as the ‘trial’ version is, so under no circumstances should you allow yourself to be tricked in to paying for this fraudulent enterprise.
