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.

The registry entries that are mentioned above are to be deleted by searching on your computer. It is because of these entries that the computer hangs.

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.
