Vista internet security MALEWARE

in short this is what i have...

What is Vista Internet Security 2010?

Vista Internet  security 2010 is a new version of OS-specific rogue   antiviruses. To be more precise, it is a same fake antivirus like XP Or  Win 7 Internet security 2010, you will see a different name according  to your OS though.  It is a scam that should not be taken lightly.  Although threats Vista Internet Security 2010 shows in its scan logs are  false, your Vista PC got serious infection – the rogue promoting  trojans.  You might get them by clicking on infected facebook/myspace  ads or by downloading  useless shareware or fake codecs.

A typical Vista Internet Security 2010 popup/alert looks like this:

Vista Internet Security 2010 Firewall Alert!
Vista Internet Security 2010 has  blocked a program from accessing the Internet
Internet Explorer is infected with  Trojan-BNK.Win32-Keylogger.gen
Private   data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and  passwords.

Tracking software found!
Your PC activity is being monitored. Possible spyware  infection. Your data security  may be compromised. Sensitive data can  be stolen. Prevent damage now by completing security scan.

Moved this to the correct area.   No virus protection is going to stop 100% of what's out there, especially when it comes to fake anti-malware software such as this.  You have to be very careful where you surf, what you click on and what you download.

There is an excellent removal guide here which I Googled:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-internet-security-2010

Scroll down the page as the first few links are adverts.
