If your computer has been infected with Desktop Defender 2010, you can use this method to remove it. Doing it this way worked for me and my laptop is back up and running as good as ever.

1. Do a System Restore
2. Download and run CCLEANER

3. Download and run SUPERAntiSpyware
http://www.filehippo.com/download_sup...
4. Download and run AVG AntiVius

This should work. You can find more solutions to this problem by doing a YAHOO! or Google search for "Desktop Defender 2010".

Shortly after I posted this video, I located the purported homepage of the creators of Desktop Defender 2010, located at
http://www.windesktopdefender.com/
and I did a WHOIS search to discover who the registrant of the site is and the results came back as "Unknown", which is something that people would do if they didn't want you to know where they really live or work.

UPDATE: the homepage of the company selling DD2010 is offline. I'm not sure what happened, but the site is gone.

If you know some one whose computer has been infected with Desktop Defenders 2010, provide them with this link and recommend that they file a Federal complaint against these people.
