I’ve had malwarebytes on several computers for years. It was free at first with beta and I either lost or never got the coupon for long time members. Before purchasing it, I wanted to look for a valid coupon code online.
***EDIT*** Ronald, one of our readers, offered another Malwarebytes coupon code – enter BM6-3S7-665 for 20% off or alternatively try code B3S-6Q1-H54 or Q65-TRJ-G7J to save 15% during checkout (you might want to check the comments for newer user-submitted coupons, some might not be working, depending on the actual website where you place the order).

Editor’s note: Unlikely as it may sound, we had one of the office computers infected with
Once Antivirus 2010 is installed on your laptop or computer, it’ll be automatically configured to run when you logon to Windows. This is done by adding a startup entry that launches the C:\Windows\System32\wingamma.exe executable. This executable will then launch the AV2010.exe and the fake Windows Security Center. Once running, it’ll scan your pc and list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first pay for the computer software. This infection will also randomly display fake security alerts on your pc stating that you just are infected or have some sort of security risk. In the event you click on these alerts, it is going to prompt you to obtain the software program. These fake alerts, along with a fake Windows Security Center that advertises Antivirus 2010, are applied to further scare you into thinking you’re infected so you pay for the application.
Another new addition to these types of rogues is the creation of a fake Blue Screen of Death. At random intervals, Antivirus 2010 will produce what appears to be a Windows crash, but in reality is just a fake screen. These fake crashes are utilized to further persuade you into purchasing the software program. When you receive this crash, you can merely reboot your pc , or try pressing Alt-Tab or Control-Alt-Delete to get out of it.
