Antivirus 2010 is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus 2008 and Antivirus 2009.
Like its previous incarnations, Antivirus 2010 is advertised through the use of advertisements on the Web pretending to be online anti-malware scanners.
These advertisements pretend to scan your computer and then state that your computer is infected and that you should download and install Antivirus 2010 to remove these infections. These rogues are also known to be advertised and installed through Trojans that display fake security alerts in your Windows taskbar stating you are infected. Once you click on one of these alerts, it will bring you to the download page for Antivirus 2010, or even download and install it without your permission.
Once Antivirus 2010 is installed on your computer, it will be automatically configured to run when you logon to Windows. This executable will then launch the AV2010 and the fake Windows Security Center. Once running, it will scan your computer and list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the software. This infection will also randomly display fake security alerts on your computer stating that you are infected or have some sort of security risk.
If you click on these alerts, it will prompt you to purchase the software. These fake alerts, along with a fake Windows Security Center that advertises Antivirus 2010, are used to further scare you into thinking you are infected so you purchase the software.

Sanitation workers in Huntington, WV were cleaning out a catch basin at about 9:00AM Thursday morning when they ran into a fetus.
The fetus was found at the 31st Street Lift Station and the WV State Medical Examiner planning to perform an autopsy on it.
Huntington Police describe the fetus as a white male between three and four months along in development.
WV Secretary of Transportation says that politics had nothing to do with which road projects were selected to receive federal stimulus money.
Congressman Alan Mollohan’s district received the most – about $36 million for Corridor H and the Mon-Fayette Expressway.
Congressman Nick Rahall got $32 million, all for the East Beckley By-pass.
Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito received $29 million for Route 9 in Jefferson County. She is state’s only Republican, and the only member of the delegation to vote against the stimulus.
WVDOT says the choices were made based on objective criteria, not politics. And Congress had no input into this. This was done by the staff of the DOH, and there was no political influence in choosing this.
Several counties have been left out of the stimulus road package, including Barbour, Clay, Doddridge, Gilmer, Hancock, Hardy, Harrison, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, Pocahontas, Preston, Putnam, Summers, Webster, Wetzel, Wirt, Wood and Wyoming Counties.
WV State School Building Authority still doesn’t have a clear picture of how much federal stimulus money it will receive. But whatever the amount, WV SBA says they have plenty of projects to spend it on in West Virginia.
SBA will meet next month with county superintendents who will make their cases for construction and renovation needs and then, in April, the SBA will choose the projects they plan to fund.
SBA says: “Two-thirds are indeed projects that are requesting to repair or renovate or modernize and, of those, the vast majority of those are heating, ventilation and air conditioning.“
Since the stimulus money can only be spent on renovations, repairs or modernization, WV Governor says they’ll take care of those projects with the federal funds and use the $100 million from the state to pay for new school construction.
An advertisement that is being aired in WV has drawn criticism for depicting a heterosexual family as being viewed through a sniper’s rifle scope.
Both the content and the provenance of the ad has raised questions, reported an Associated Press article carried on Thursday February 19, 2009 in Fairmont, WV’s The Times West Virginian
Making repeated use of phrases like “God’s design” and “unaccountable judges,“ the ad runs to nearly 6 minutes, and claims that marriage equality would destroy religious liberty.
The ad’s narration predicts that if marriage equality is not barred as a matter of law in the state constitution, access of matrimonial rights by gay and lesbian families will “threaten… our ability to freely and legally follow the faith,“ which, for many Christians, includes an understanding of Biblical condemnation against gays.
WV Governor Joe Manchin does not expect an anti-gay ad with ties to companies dedicated to Republican political victories to succeed in pressuring state lawmakers into putting marriage rights up to a popular vote.

Two projects at Yeager Airport have caught the attention of the Federal Aviation Administration for its share of the economic stimulus package.
The FAA told Yeager’s Airport Board that the extension of Taxiway A and airport terminal improvements are the projects most likely to benefit from the money.
The stimulus provided $1.1 billion to be distributed among 400 airports through the FAA. Yeager’s taxiway and terminal improvements each cost $5 million apiece.
You are creating a document in Microsoft Word which contains multiple short lines. Say, you are typing names and addresses. After you hit the Return/Enter key at the end of each line you noticed that the lines are Double Spaced! You try to fix it by changing the line spacing, but the problem still exists! Why?
The answer is simple! When you hit the Enter key, Word treats each line as a paragraph, and put the proper spacing between two paragraphs. Instead of just hitting the Enter key, hold either Shift key and hit Enter. And the problem is resolved.
Glenville State College Students and Faculty conducted the latest phase of the school’s Adopt Yeager Airport project on Wednesday.
GSC’s Land Resources Department scattered Redbud tree seeds on slopes overlooking Interstate 79/77 as part of a landscape project.
As the result, travelers near Yeager Airport are going to see a lot more Redbuds in the coming years.
The airport has been undergoing runway extension projects that involved removing trees from the hillsides.

Several West Virginia libraries have teamed up to participate in an online service called “WV DELI” .
The program allows library cardholders to download digital books and music onto their laptops, MP3 players, and cell phones.
Organizers say the service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, thanks to the network of libraries.
The network includes Fairmont State, Glenville State College, and the public libraries in Marion County, Bridgeport, Morgantown, and Ohio County.
After reading your messages they disappear from then Inbox! You wonder what happened because you did not delete them! You look in your Delete folder and they are not there either! Are the messages gone?
Not really. The messages are perfectly safe. You just managed to accidentally change a setting in Windows Mail that hides messages once you’ve read them.
It’s easy enough to fix. From the menu, select View | Current View; you’ll see that Hide Read Messages is checked. Click Show All Messages and your problem is resolved.
This solution also applies to Outlook Express.
Both Outlook Express and Windows Mail can optionally display a toolbar whose sole purpose is to manage hiding or showing already-read messages, but that seems a bit unnecessary for a setting that’s rarely changed.

Senate Education Committee is considering Governor Joe Manchin’s Promise Scholarship bill.
The proposal, introduced Wednesday in the Senate, caps the scholarship at $4,500 and does away with the Promise Board of Control that currently oversees the program.
A new board would be made up of financial aid experts from across the state.
This bill keeps the program a merit-based scholarship.
Senate Education Committee indicates that the increase in tuition at the state’s college and universities has outpaced the state’s ability to continue to pick-up the full cost of the program.
First of March is the Filing Deadline for FAFSA
