Antivirus Pro 2010 is a Smitfraud client.  This is no better then any other rouge security client out there.  It a fake program that is just waiting to scam people out of their hard earned cash.  Like most other Smitfraud clients out there this one is known to highjack a persons desktop and re-direct the web browser to a site that is selling the product.

We should note that all scan results for this client as well as warnings are fake.  That’s right those viruses they say exist do not.  It’s all a con to scare the user into making a purchase.

Those who get infected with this will have other trojans installed on their computer.  If you did not purposely install this program on your system then you will be infected by at least a trojan downloader program.  These types of trojans go out and download Smitfraud clients as well as several other viruses as well.  That is why you will need to run a scan with Spyware Doctor with Antivirus.  While the un registered version will not remove any threats it will block any threats from re-installing while you manually remove this bogus software.  It is also needed to identify what else you may be infected with and to show you the exact path and files names that need to be deleted.  These strains change all the time and having this tool is a big help.  If you intend on making a purchase then just register the product and hit the remove button and your done.

Manual Removal of Antivirus Pro 2010:

Step 1.  You need to end the Antivirus Pro 2010 program. Open the Task Manager ( ctrl+alt+del ) and end the process AntivirusPro_2010.exe, if this process is not there then your strain has mutated from the one this guide is for.  It should be similar in name.  You can run a quick scan with Spyware Doctor with Antivirus to identify the new process as well.

Step 2. Delete all the Antivirus Pro 2010 files.  The location of this program in our test was c:\Program Files\AntivirusPro_2010.  Open up that folder and delete anything inside it.  If a file can not be deleted use the task manager to see if it is running.  If the Task Manager does not see it running then try to re-name the file.  Then keep in mind the location path and on the next re-boot delete the file.

Step 3. We are going to be editing the registry and removing the Antivirus Pro 2010 strains.  Go to the run bar and type regedit.  Now find and delete the following registry keys.

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AntivirusPro_2010
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don’t load “scui.cpl”
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don’t load “wscui.cpl”
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “Antivirus Pro 2010″

That should be it for this strain.  If you are having issues and can not get programs to run like the Task Manager then try the Kill Process tool in the side bar.  You still need to run a Security scan to ensure you have no other threats on your computer.  We use Spyware Doctor with Antivirus because it works really well.
