Security Tool

Posted: September 25, 2009

ScreenshotSecurity Tool is a rogue anti-spyware program that uses fake security alerts and system scan results to make computer users believe that they must purchase the Security Tool program to remove the found threats. Security Tool comes from the same group of attackers that made the fake security programs Security Shield, System Security and Total Security 2009.

Use of Security Tool will not help alleviate the threat of legitimate parasites. Security Tool, through the use of Trojans and malicious websites, can be installed onto your computer without notification. After installation of Security, usually without warning to the computer, it may display the following bogus notification alert:

"Security Tool Warning
Spyware.IEMonster activity detected. This is spyware that attempts to steal passwords from Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Outlook and other programs. Click here to remove it immediately with SecurityTool."

Security Tool was noted as being just the opposite of any legitimate program with the name ‘Security Tool’. The hackers that created the rogue Security Tool have intentionally given it that name to further mislead computer users. Basically, the hackers want computer users to think that Security Tool has the functionality to detect and remove parasites therefore they should purchase the full version of Security Tool to carry out those actions. The only problem is Security Tool does not have that type of capability.

It is suggested that notifications like this be ignored and prompt the action of completely removing the Security Tool application from your computer. Detection and removal of Security Tool can be difficult to perform manually so it is recommended that the use of a spyware removal tool be used.

    Today [1/24/10; approx. 12:45 p.m.] \"Security Tool\" attached itself to my computer and stopped all other programs from running (Including \' start --> system programs--> recover\') until I finally purchased a two year license ($45 or so), via credit card..

    When this shows up on my CC bill, I am going to dispute the charge, and not pay it.

    I haven\'t removed the \'Security Tool\' software yet, but will look into that next.

    Security tool has taken over my cumputer completely and won't let me on the internet or delete anything. When I click on anything up pops security tool with dire warnings then wants me to buy it. Another program done the same thing to me in December of 2009 and I had to buy it to get my couputer back. It quit working a couple days ago and yesterday this new Security Tool poped up and took over my computer. The first one was called ANTIVIRUS SYSTEM PREMIUM and it was billed to my credit card as WORLDSANTISPYSOFT.COM
    I'm sending this message from my other computer.

  • Roger says:

    The progrm resides in documents and settings folder,open it,under TOOLS go folder options
    set to see hidden folders.
    look for APPLICATION folder ...open,you will find 2 folders with an 8 digit number,try deleting each folder,try renaming each folder.
    Go to START menu run 'regedit'do a search for the 8 digit numbers,search again and again,delete all file swith those numbers and/or security tool name.
    Do a search again until the search finds nothing.

    Should be ok,do a full antivirus/spyware scan afterwards.

I do not want to purchase their software, I do not see why they are trying to force people to buy there infected products. The US government should do something about this urgently.

  • Brooke says:

    i have this virus;
    and ive tried absolutely everything to get rid of it.
    i cant do anything with anti virus software to get rid of it automatically..
    because securitytool takes over and doesnt let it open once it's downloaded.
    i cant open a majority of the programs on my computer..
    and nothing i do to get rid of the virus manually works.
    every half an hour or so the "blue screen of death" pops up.
    and i have to restart and do it all again.
    wth; do i do ?

  • R S Chan says:

    I found out that I was infected with this really bad malware SECURITY TOOLS this morning. Thanks to Erin, I followed his suggestion. Reboot my comoputer in SAFE MODE and then go to RESTORE (from System Tools) and chose a date of two days earlier for restoring. WOW, two minutes later I got my computer back.

    It is so simple.

    Thanks, Erin.

  • R S Chan says:

    I took Erin's suggestion and did the following.

    1. Reboot in SAGE MODE.
    2. Go to ALL PROGRAMS.
    3. Go to ACCESSORIES.
    4. Go to SYSTEM TOOLS.
    5. Go to RESTORE.
    6. Chjose a date 2 days earlier.

    Two minutes later my computer rebooted and the malware SECURIT Y TOOLS was gone and I got my computer back.

    It is very simple, thanks to Erin.

  • vicki says:

    i cant get this security off my computer is there anything i can do

  • cool c says:

    security tool turns your screensaver black your computer is still their you have to just turn your screen color back by simply switching your wallpapercolor. you can simply remove by geting to remove or uninstall programs, but be sure to cop yourself a real security suit, like Norton or Mcafee, cause secrity tool prob left more infections that need to be removed.

  • John says:

    Search the processes in the task manager for a numeric .exe program and stop it. For me it was 1388493879.exe. Next do searches for that number and remove it or change it's value. They changed the program name.

  • 00000 says:

  • Lisa Rapple says:

  • thankz says:

    CAN U KELP IM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS WITH SECURITY TOOLS ON MY COMPUTER

  • tydirect.com says:

    not too familiar with these things but for me, simply getting into task manager and stopping the process allowed me to restore my computer to a prior date/time before the problem occurred. That seemed to work just fine. You'll find that the only way to get into task manager is to restart your computer and RIGHT AFTER you log in, press Ctrl+Alt+Del (you have a short period of time to do this... if you cannot get in, you'll have to reboot and try again) Once in, go to your processes tab and wait for the process to appear. It will appear as a random series of numbers followed by a .exe... once you see it, you have a few seconds to click on it to high light it and then click on the End process button. For me there was only one but I'm told that there may be two process that will start up. If you are successful, you will be able to get into system restore and restore your computer to a point prior to when the problem started. Hopefully, you have system restore enabled. Hope this helps.

    what a mess!!! I \\\'ve downloaded security tool and for 79 dollars cos an ad said my computer was in danger. Should I be worried and run to my bank

  • Michael says:

    I had Security Tool load itself onto my laptop via the mobile broadband dongle. However, by going into Norton, finding two files in the Start Up section that control Security Tool and switching them off, it disables Security Tool and allows you to regain control of your PC or laptop. Hope this is of help to anyone who has had the misfortune to have Security Tool appear on the scene. If anyone has other makes of anti-virus suites, check the Start Up section and try what I did. Good luck and thank you Enigma Software for highlighting and giving computerusers the mean to deal with the Security Tool malware.

  • duane says:

  • angie says:

    hi i need a way to get rid of my security tool can you help me and email me back of what i should do

  • The Truth says:

    The only solution that worked for me was to enter safe mode (f8) before the windows loading screen appears on startup. when in safe mode the security tool has no affect. So simply delete the files from your application folder / downloads folder / programmes. When you restart in normal mode you have your computer back. Simples

    Roger - thank you for taking the time to post such complete details on how to get rid of Security Tools. It hit my PC yesterday and I did what you suggested. I did have to go into safe mode as the minute I went to delete the sucker it would crash my computer but in safe mode I was able to locate the file, send to recycle, delete, find in the registry and delete. I scanned my computer and now it's running great and Security Tools is gone. I am not very computer literate and I was able to follow your instructions with great results. Thanks again for sharing.

  • Sarah in Florida says:

    So confused what websites do you trust and which ones dont you?? I am stuck in Window Security Tool HELL......Totally screwed ever since I made an error going to oogle.com and not google,com fast fingers got me this!!!

  • susie says:

    CAN YOU SEND ME INFO ON HOW TO GET RID OF THIS SECURITY TOOL CRAP,I CAN'T GET INTO ANYTHING, NOT EVEN SYSTEM RESTORE. AND I DON'T REALLY WANT TO FORMAT MY "C" DRIVE. HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

  • JA says:

    Here's what I did to get rid of it: Restarted my infected computer and press F8 to get to start up options screen. Run Windows in Safe Mode with Networking. I could now go online through Firefox and downloaded the program from this site: SpyHunter, because I do not have any other spyware removal programs. I payed for it and it did the work for me, Security Tool is gone. I assume you can just Safe Mode and use any spyware removal programs to get rid of it, not just SpyHunter. It sucks to spend money to fix it, but if you know how to do it manually and can do it for free, go for it. I'm not a programming wiz so I took a leap of faith on it. All that security tool BS was gone in like a minute. Now my laptop is fine, good luck.

  • Angela says:

    Thanks a lot! it really helped! Guys follow the first advice, it really worked! Good luck!! 🙂

  • ED says:

    I got rid of it by rebooting the computer on safe mode (F8 when reboot) then after loged in on safe mode I made a system restore to a computer checkpoint checkpoint a week ago. When it started again the virus was gone. Hope this help.

  • Larry says:

    Start in safe mode by repeatedly tapping F8 as you boot the computer. Go to c:/users/---your name---/appdata/local/-----number below---- DELETE this file in safe mode. This is how I got the program to stop running so I could delete the rest of the files.

    "----number below----" There will be a number when you drag and hold the mouse over the system tray on the lower right corner of the screen where the Security Tool icon is displayed. Mine was 40714.

    I think this fixed the problem, hoping it doesn't come back.

  • Maria says:

    oh my lord this is happening to me what do I do I ve been trying to get rid of it for the past 3 hours system tool comes up its no in uninstall ive done F8 but nothing my antivirus only run out last week. boo hooo. can someone help me please

  • bryce says:

    dont delete any files! turn cpu off and hit f8 then select safe mode with networking and download and installl then...worked for me 100 percent.

  • dijoj9@ptd.net says:

    Trying to remove Security Tool program i keep getting messages Securty Tool Warnig to open an acct. I already have protection plan. Please give information do delete I can\\\'t get any se from my computer because i keep getting messages to apply for Security tools and i already protection.
    Thank you

  • read roger's method says:

    Read the blog before posting. Roger's method is sound and should work for most savvy users. For others, I guess spend the money on SpyHunter, though I do not spend money on anything! Good luck 🙂

  • reese says:

    security sheild will not allow me to open spyhunter......what do i do ?

  • Lukas says:

    I got the same problem as every1 else. I cant don anything on my PC except on Safe Mode and even then it cant find it (Malwarebytes & SpyBot-S&D) Anytime i'm not on safemode i cant do anything and the screen is blue telling me to... "PLEASE REMOVE ALL SPYWEAR FOR THE BEST PROTECTION!" in bold red letters. I too dont know how i got this as i was just playing a mmorpg and suddnely an error popped up. Security tool as well.
    Right now doing this on Safe Mode and it wont let me download this Spyware thing.

  • Brittany says:

    EVERYONE. FOR THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THIS PRODUCT, MAKE SURE YOU BOOT YOUR COMPUTER INTO SAFE MODE, BY PRESSING F8 WHILE YOUR COMPUTER IS LOADING UP. THANK YOU,

  • HahaEPICFAILsecuritytoolIDIOT says:

    Yeah... it's a bad virus. Got infected with it one night through genuine 'site's ad's (look for booby-trapped ads on BBC for info- scary). It said I had 38 viruses. Maybe it was a different variant but it let me on the net.
    So I then downloaded MBAM, windows security essentials and trend micro stuff (5 total anti-viruses- im a bit like fort knox?).
    You do have to load in safe mode though as it's a sly thing.
    And if you've typed ANY account info in online with this- you're doomed. Get rid of it and change ALL your passwords.

    So... my advice: download Malbytes anti-malware scanner, and look up trend micro (especially HijackThis).
    And don't ever pay someone who CAN'T spell (they spelled you're as your're.)

  • Tim H says:

    i swear to god, if this spyhunter thing screws stuff even more i will.... im still thinken about it but please let this work security tool suck i could download the spyhunter and it says so far i have 2 threats thanks guys

  • will says:

    this worked for me as well thank you

  • Kaycee Hartry says:

    Thanks for the suggestion regarding System Restore ... fortunately I hadn't clicked any of the fake options (other than Close) and so it worked for me. Since I had lost internet connectivity, my tech support couldn't troubleshoot it (work from home) and was going to have me ship the unit to them. So it save my non-profit $$$.

  • Kaoru says:

    There is only one way to do it. If you have another coetmpur not infected, you need to copy the exe for system restore (restrui.exe), found in /windows/system 32, and either copy to a network drive, or copy to some external device, then run it on the infected machine, and roll back the coetmpur to a time before Home Security 2011 was installed.I did that, and Vista Home Security 2011 was remove from my system.
