Hi Jacspeed,

Security tool is a rogue virus which is self protective, thus it will prevent any antivirus from fonctionning.

You must kill the processes which the virus is presently running. If you don't it will keep reproducing the files for ever.

To kill the processes:

Download to your desktop and run Rogue Kill:

https://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.com

5.You should now see a window that shows all of your desktop icons, including the rkill.com program. Now double-click on the rkill.com in order to automatically attempt to stop any processes associated with Security Tool and other Rogue programs. Please be patient while the program looks for various malware programs and ends them. When it has finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step. If you get a message that rkill is an infection, do not be concerned. This message is just a fake warning given by Security Tool when it terminates programs that may potentially remove it. If you run into these infections warnings that close Rkill, a trick is to leave the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the warning, this typically will allow you to bypass the malware trying to protect itself so that rkill can terminate Security Tool . So, please try running Rkill until malware is no longer running.

Also, if you get warning messages, it just means that the virus is agonizing in excrutiating pain, just you may just laugh at it.

Please, DO NOT REBOOT your computer or the processes will come back to haunt you!

Download to your desktop Malwarebyte.

https://ccm.net/downloads/security-and-maintenance/4621-malwarebytes-anti-malware/

Once on your desktop, we must still outwit the virus.

Right click on the MBAM icon and click on rename. Rename it Explorer.exe.

Install Malwarebyte and launch it. From the second tab, update it.

Pretty please, request a FULL system scan which should take more than hour. Once the scan is finish, delete all of item that were found.

Malwarebyte may restart your system, if so, lauch it again to finish the scan.

Do not interfere or play with anything let the tools do their job.

Once your computer is clean and working normally just to be on the safe side
*Turn off system restore and wait 30 seconds,
*Turn it back on and create a new restore point.

This way it gets rid of anything bad that might have gotten saved in a restore point and you have a clean restore point to use in the near future if needed.

Please let me know how you did...or I will throw a curse on your system.:))

I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH, AMBUCIAS!!! You saved my computer this evening. I was so ready to go online to find a reg-key for this stupid XP Security Tool when I stumbled across this thread and slapped my head. OF COURSE this was a scam! I should have recognized the tell-tale signs from the get-go.

I followed your instructions to the letter and bada-bing, that thing is gone! What a pain! Moreover, you are just such a terrific stranger! Hopefully your guidance has helped many a ware-weary net-user (and I am just speaking-up on their behalf). THANK YOU
