Antivirus 2010 is a rogue security tool that uses misleading advertisements to gain a purchase and crashes a system and loads fake Blue Screen of Death. The text on BSOD is fabricated and claims that MS Windows recommend purchasing Antivirus 2010 to remove spyware from a machine. This recommendation is just a trick of Antivirus 2010 and it should not be trusted.
