Desktop Security 2010

Jump to solution

I have a little icon on my computer that says it is "Desktop Security 2010" I don't remember installing it so I googled and it comes up as a malware virus.  I haven't had any issues with it popping up or causing any problems but how do I get rid of it?!  I ran a stinger I found on another thread but it didn't do anything?

Have you run a full scan of your machine with VirusScan?

If so what were the results?

I did run a full scan and it didn't find anything.  Downloaded and ran Malwarebytes anti-malware and it removed it.  I think I got off easy because the virus program never did anything I just noticed a quick start icon next to my start button (probably a good thing I didn't click on it to find out what it was!)
