AV 2010 has been plaugeing our customers lately.
We even had a real nasty booger that hijacked outlook and sent thousands of spam emails through exchange within a matter of 2-3 minutes. So many in fact that they got blacklisted in most of the major spam blocklist feeds.

I have seen a ton of these lately too. Last week I cleared four and I have two scheduled for this week. The most interesting thing is that last week one of my clients actually purchased the bogus protection. It left the registry key that kept his user account from runing exe files but it stopped any of the bogus malware's processes from loading on startup.
What do you use to clean them? I generally go into safe mode and install malwarebytes. It seems to get rid of everything. If that doesn't work I do a backup of their documents, install combofix and run it. I do the backup just in case combofix causes problems. It doesn't often but I have had a machine fail to boot after runing it.

I used spybot search and destroy on my cousins pc to get rid of antivirus 2009. She had given up using her pc because av2009 was locking up everything. I'm gonna have to try malwarebytes, is it free?
