Hello Somee,

You are one of the many victims of this fake Security Tool virus which is designed to get to peoples' credit card account. It is a good thing that you did not fall for it.

Your antivirus application cannot remove the virus because Security Tool creates processes which prevent antivirus applications from running, it is self protective.

We must try to outwit the beast while terminating the processes generated by the trojan to better eliminate it.

Here is the poison recipe to kill the Trojan.

Please follow the instructions hereunder:

Download Process Explorer and save it in C:\ folder.
Download link: http://live.sysinternals.com/procexp.exe

2. Rename procexp.exe to explorer.exe and double-click to run it.

3. Select Security Tool process from the list. Should be 4946550101.exe or similar and press "Delete" button to end the process.

4. Close Process Explorer.
download MalwareBytes anti-malware:

5. Rename mbam-setup.exe to explorer.exe and double-click to run it. Install, update and run MalwareBytes anti-malware. Then perform a FULL computer scan and remove all found infections.

That should do it.

If you need further assistance, please come back.

Please let us know if the above worked for you as we like to read stories with happy endings.
