Similar on a friends computer INTERNET SECURITY 2010 popups and browser diversions galore, tried malware removal tool as generally recommended similar result IS2010 removed but some other tool appears.
Tried McAfee scan - useless
Have to run AVG, SPYBOT and Ad Aware this afternoon.
You would think McAfee would work.....
If no success with above will try hijack this
If it's any consolation don't think we are the only ones rowing in this boat
http://www.411-spyware.com/remove-internet-security-2010 has some manual removal tips (which I did not follow - perhaps I should have)
Yes , have it too and need help removing it also. My McAfee did not stop it and will not remove it. I can not find any thing on the McAfee web site about it, any help will be greatly appreciated. I could not get malwarebytes to run. I did find some information on Nortons web site but I was unsuccessful getting it to work for me.

There is an excellent removal guide for this here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-internet-security-2010
Scroll down that page as the first few links are advertising.
None of the protection software suites on the market today can effectively defend against this fake malware, that's why there are specialist tools out there.
I followed the advice from the other thread and got rid of a few things.
I can see your a big help on these forums
Thank you and glad it's OK now.
