    How to get rid of Adware/PCAntiSpyware2010

    I am using Windows XP operating system and my browser is Mozilla Firefox. I need to know how to get rid of Adware/PCAntiSpyware2010. This infection has entered my system yesterday and the McAfee antivirus has alerted me about the same. The problem is that the entire system hangs when I try to scan the computer. What are the solutions that can help. I am waiting for some suggestions.

    Hello there, I guess that you will have to format the computer and install a new copy of the operating system that you are using to get rid of Adware/PCAntiSpyware2010. This is an assured and good method to delete the infections. This is because if the infections are prevailed in the computer, then it is possible that a system crash might occur. So, formatting will solve the issue.

    Adware/PCAntiSpyware2010 is a very dangerous infection and according to me, it is required that the system restore must be enabled to get rid of the same. I have used this method and I want you to be aware that all the data and installed components in the computer along with the infections will be deleted completely. So, basically this method leads to a loss of data.
