Yes, I have a PC. Yes, I have yet another virus. tl;dr

The only way i'm gonna be able to get rid of this is if I can stop it from starting up when Windows does. I'm on my Dads account at the moment, his doesn't seem to be infected. Is there any way to stop "SecurityTool" being started upon login on my account from my Dads account? I know I can use msconfig from my account, but that's the thing. I don't get a chance to get to it before my computer screen goes blue and it restarts.

When I start up my keyboard doesn't function until after i've logged in. So I can't use the arrow keys to select whethyer I want safe mode or not. Maybe I should just wipe the whole thing and start afresh.

I've dealt with viruses like this before. Have you tried restoring your computer? I know some viruses allow you to do that, but others don't.

If that doesn't work, do you have a legit antivirus program (Norton, McAfee, ect)?

If they don't work, I agree, just reformat. Sure you'll wipe everything out, but if I were you, I'd rather start anew than have a virtually unusable computer.

Computer thread mate.

Also, if your keyboard works after logging in, try doing start - run (or hold the windows key and press R) - type in msconfig, go to the startup tab and disable that security tool thing from there.

Then get some antivirus in this shit to clean the shit up.

My father had something similar last month. Does it stop you from opening anything etc, telling you that you have a virus and posing as an anti-virus tool?

Restart the PC and before the process can start open up the task manager. The moment you see the processes start shut them down using the task manager. Then locate them in your hard drive and delete the suckers. There will be two, one has to be deleted first before the other (the .exe) can be.

90% chance this will work:

1:Go to system 32
2:Go to apps (could be called appsmanager or something similar depending on OS)
3:Google each file name inside folder
4:If one is a virus google will tell you and probably give you instruction on how to remove manually.

Worst case scenario you find nothing, in this case torrent Avast! "buy" it later.

But Avast! is free anyway. Or, as TS is using Windows, he can download Microsoft Security Essentials.

Avast! isn't free, like all other virus programs it has a watered down free version that doesn't do anything helpful. Unless they have a new free version I'm not aware of since I haven't even installed a virus program on my computer since I got windows 7 over a year ago.

No anti-virus works. For anything. I also have the "Google Redirect Virus".
All anti-virus software won't install because none of them can find a connection to the internet, despite the fact my internet connection is fine.

It's practically the anti-anti-virus-virus.

Fuck it. I'll wipe it.

Hold on now, check to see if you can find out what the virus's name is. If you can figure that much out I can give you some website names and what not to block in your hostfile so you can connect to the internet.

People these days and always wanting to wipe there computer.

EDIT: Never mind I got you, give me a few minutes and I will get you what you need.

EDIT2: This will get you what you need (If it's the same virus you have) http://www.spywared.com/news/how-to-remove-security-tool-security-tool-removal-help-206.html

If it's not what you have than I suggest doing the ol' look for odd names check on system32.

Norton is a virus unto itself..and you PAY for it as well. I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials/Malwarebytes/Defender. If you don't mind paying a little bit of money though, grab some TrendMicro, shit is so cash man.

Boot up in safe mode with networking. Download malwarebytes and run a quick scan.

Norton has also been known for reporting regular every day files as trojans.

I haven't found any trojans, mostly just tracking cookies.
