What is Antivirus 2010?

Beware of malware in anti-virus clothing

Antivirus 2010 is a very insistent program that wants to download itself and protect your computer.

Do not fall for it. Antivirus 2010 will not protect you from malware. In fact, it is malware. It's a rogue program, pretending to protect you from infections while infecting your computer.

If you get a pop-up warning you of danger and suggesting you install this wonderful program, don't click Yes and don't click No, either. Close the window.

And if you think you caught the infection, download, install, and run the free version of either SuperAntiSpyware and Malabytes' Anti-Malware.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
