Removing the “Antivirus 2010” (or whatever year) Virus from your PC

For those of you who were duped into getting the Antivirus 2010 (or other previous year) virus, there are a few simple things you can do to remove it.
Symptoms of the virus are the Antivirus 2010 running and the fake Windows Security Center. It pretends to scan your computer and list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the software. It also randomly displays fake security alerts on your computer stating that you are infected or have some sort of security risk. If you click on these alerts, it will prompt you to purchase the software. These fake alerts, along with a fake Windows Security Center that advertises Antivirus 2010, are used to further scare you into thinking you are infected so you purchase the software. Sometimes it also brings up a fake blue screen of death. It can also hijack your internet browser (like internet explorer or Firefox) and display a message stating that the website you are trying to access is dangerous and then it prompts you to purchase the software to continue.
First thing you should do it reboot into safemode with networking. To do this restart your computer (Start–>Restart). While it is booting, before you get to windows, press F8 to being up the boot menu allowing you to choose “safemode with networking.” Select that choice and allow the PC to continue to boot. Once logged in and booted up, open your internet browser go to http://malwarebytes.org/ and download the free version of Malwarebytes. When the download is complete install Malwarebytes. After installation run the software by doing a complete scan. Once the scan is complete, it will display the infected files and prompt you to restart to remove these infected files. Agree to this restart. After the restart is complete and your computer is booted back up in normal mode, run your virus scanner to make sure you have removed all residual problems. (if you don’t have antivirus software, get AVG’s free antivirus)

You should be good to go now.
