Desktop Security 2010
Desktop Security 2010 is the latest in rogue anti-spyware programs which is lurking around the internet. Desktop Security 2010 is one of the most dangerous rogue antispyware applications that exist on the internet to date. Desktop Security 2010 has been designed for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to steal your money. Desktop Security 2010 (or Desktop Security) will make use of a fake scan report as well as fake scan report results in order to try and convince you that you have all types of dangerous threats running on your machine. The main goal behind this is to make you very scared and then offer you the full version of Desktop Security 2010, for a small fee, which promises to remove these threats that don't actually exist. This new program is an exact clone of Desktop Defender 2010 and Total PC Defender.
Desktop Security 2010 is a cunning computer infection that looks like a security tool. The infection enters the system while you are exploring different suspicious websites, and once the fake antivirus program is installed, it puts criminals’ plans into action. The actions, which you should ignore, are entirely familiar to computer users who scan computers with professional tools, because the rogue imitates scans and displays misleading warnings saying that the computer is at risk.
As the user’s money is the only objective of Desktop Security 2010, it attempts to prompt the user to acquire the full version of the program in order to remove Trojans and other infections supposedly found on the PC. This is done by displaying nag screens and pop-up messages informing about the risks of having an infection on the PC and pushing to register the program. Please find how those annoying message look like:
Warning! Running trial version!
Do not register the tool, because this program is a clone of Total PC Defender 2010 that operates according to the same scheme to deceive unsuspecting computer users. Different system disorders that you notice when using the computer should be also disregarded, because they are initiated by the rogue. For example, the malicious program can restart your computer unexpectedly; moreover, it can block installation of new anti-spyware tools and provide you with a fake Windows Task Manager that has an additional column saying whether the process given is infected or not.
As such viruses as 1.ico, c.dat, W32/Rimecud and others do not exist on your PC even though they are provided as critical, you should not waste your time closing annoying messages and remove Desktop Security 2012 immediately.
