    Fake Security Essentials 2010 virus

    Security Essentials 2010, also known as SecurityEssentials2010, is a
    fake antivirus program. The program can generally infect systems
    running any version of the Windows operating system. Security
    Essentials 2010 is one of many fake antivirus programs; other fake
    antivirus programs include Internet Security 2010 and XP Guardian.
    Security Essentials 2010 hopes to trick the user into thinking that it
    is a real program by using various tactics such as creating fake virus
    scans. The program is generally installed through the use of a trojan
    horse; therefore, the program is generally installed with user
    permission. Security Essentials 2010 is fake and doesn’t work. The
    program will generally modify system settings to the block the user
    from accessing webpages and opening programs. The virus may also
    modify Internet Explorer connection settings.

    Removal tools (or instructions for manual removal) are no solution to an
    infection, particularly not with malware that may download more malware
    or may give an attacker remote access. One can never be sure what else
    was modified on the system and thus can never be certain that the
    malware was removed entirely.
