Virus Total 2010 Removal Instructions

Virus Total 2010 is a malicious application related to the notoriously known Security Master AV, and is a similar rogue antivirus program that tries to trick users into purchasing a software license. Virus Total 2010 uses a Trojan that gets installed when the user visits malicious websites to exploit security loopholes in the user’s system which then installs Virus Total 2010 on the system. Once installed, Virus Total 2010 will go on to perform a large number of fake scans on the system, reporting to the user that their computer is infected with an almost infinite number of non-existent viruses. It also displays fake warning pop-ups from the Windows taskbar. Virus Total 2010 installs a Browser Helper Object that redirects the user’s web browser to a website which promotes Virus Total 2010 whenever the user attempts to surf the internet. All this activity is aimed at directing the user to purchase the ‘full’ version of Virus Total 2010 under the claim that the currently installed ‘trial’ version is not sufficient to remove the detected fake ‘viruses’. However, neither the ‘full’ version nor the ‘trial’ version is capable of properly detecting or removing viruses from any computer.
