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:

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.
