Security Tool. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Olivia Morelli - -   Also known as SecurityTool, Security Tool 2011, Security Tool 2012 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12

2012 Update: there might be new versions of this tool called: Security Tool 2011 and Security Tool 2012.

Security Tool is a rogue antivirus application that deliberately gives reports of false system security threats on your computer and displays fake security alerts or notifications to make you think your PC is infected with malware. The misleading application is from the same family as Total security 2009 and System Security. When installed, SecurityTool will be configured to start automatically when you log on into Windows. Then it will imitate system scan and display a variety of infections that can't be removed unless you purchase the program. The files detected during the scan are either harmless or legitimate system files and can't cause any damage to your computer.

Security Tool is pushed through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners and other malicious software. It is installed along with Trojans FakeAV that display fake security warnings and promote SecurityTool malware. Once running, the bogus program will block legit programs and especially anti-virus software. Another interesting thing is that if you click on Updates button, you will see “Updating”, but actually there is no network activity. It's just another argument why Security Tool is classified as a rogue security application. What is more, this parasite will impersonate Windows Security Center and constantly display warnings/notifications about serious security threats and privacy issues. It may claim that your computer is under attack by an Internet virus or that private data can be stolen. For example:

“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.”

To make things worse, SecurityTool or its 2011 and 2012 variants will hijack web browsers and block certain security websites obviously to protect itself from being deleted. It should be already obvious that this program is a scam. Do not purchase it. Instead, please use the removal guide below to remove Security Tool from your PC manually for free.

    Security Tool made its way to our desktop yesterday. We had difficulty renewing/upgrading our Norton Internet Security purchase with the PC Jump Start service. But Ayman with NortonLive-PC Jumpstart took care of it all for us. We are glad to report that Security Tool is gone and no longer a problem.

  • Guest

    thanks for your help in removing this problem also i found these files related to the security tools malware

    4099226.exe
    4946550101.exe

    i also had to delete these

    VR

  • Guest

    Thanks for the help. I found this file under 47082728 on my system. Please note this variation. The removal option was correct though. Also note that this program renames/ deletes malware bytes application info.

  • Guest

    Your Remover for Security Tool download wouldn't run for me, in fact nothing would run… no task manager, no Run dialogue, no safe mode. In the end I found your link to Killbox.net, downloaded their app which did the trick!
    Windows XP 9th Oct 09

  • Guest

    I have this virus. I tried to download spyware doctor, but the program shut it off. This virus also shuts down my internet and wont let me open saved files that contain antivirus software. What can i do?

  • Guest

    how to remove the program if we will not use it or pay for it. we install it by mistake.

  • Guest

    I didn't have this issue until I downloaded Warner Brothers Digital Copy Manager and when I try to remove it, it wont uninstall.

  • Guest

    Please, I cant uniinstal security tool nothing works security tool is shuting all anti spywares and also eset nod32 please help me …

  • Guest

    No apps or exe's will run in normal mode as Security Tool will disable or terminate any app or exe. You have to go into safe mode and follow the instructions above or run your spyware removal apps from within safe mode.

  • Guest

    i cant run any anti-spyware software on my computer cause as soon as i try my computer switches itself off to cause its infected so i cant uninstall it help me…!!! there must be a simple way!!!

  • Guest

    i cant run any anti-spyware also in my computer!… Can give me a way to delete it?!.. plssss i need to delete the fcking rogue!….

  • Guest

    How long has this rogue been an issue? What about “STOPzilla”?

  • Guest

    Someone needs to kill these people!

  • Guest

    Mine was listed as 53157829.exe … it appears to be generating random numbers for the file/registry entries it creates on different computers.

    I guess the message is that if it's behaving in the way described then it's probably this rogue, even if the number is different.

  • Guest

    how do i find the “number”.exe i've tried the safe mode way and try to connect to this site but it doesnt want to work! any ideas? windows XP by the way

  • ProHacker

    Well,ive been infected with this file,Hate it,but is dealing with it.
    Registries are gone,running malewarebytes(deleted another rouge antivirus before)
    I never got the “number”.exe process,and it doesnt have program file files.

  • Guest

    please someone; i cant do or open anything because the security tool or that windows police blocks everything. PLEASE CAN SOMEBODY EXPLAIN HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS? i really dont know what to do 🙁

  • Guest

    it won't let me downliad any rmeoval processes such as malwarebyte antimalware

  • Guest

    I remove security tool by making CTRL+ALT+DEL at the startup of windows xp before the spyware begins, and then close the process. I´ve used Anti-malware (from malwarebytes) in a free version. Good Luck 🙂

  • Guest

    this just destroyed my desktop, i tried to remove the program but my computer shut down before i could, and now i can't even start it up in safe mode, it's just a black screen with no icons or start bar or anything.

  • Guest

    windows defender will do the trick.

  • Guest

    Worked well for me. Location in registry for Current User was very helpful. Cleared all Run items except “ctfmon.exe” and “MSMSGS”.

  • Guest

    Can't open the anti virus program cause it gets terminated on start up

  • Guest

    this site is so knowledgeable!! goodthing they have descriptions on each program so the not so computer wizards can understand what are they downloading and removing

  • joeyboi

    I love This page

  • Guest

    This site was a great help… We had to use various parts of the advice here to rid our system of this pain in the you know what, but it worked.

    The only thing we lost was our desktop background. That's an easy fix!

    Thanks to all for their input!

  • EhJ

  • Tim

    Hi
    I cannot get to a browser from my computer in order to download the program you guys have, and i cannot do the manual removal either… it blocks taskmgr, and it will not allow me to even get into Safe Mode, I have no clue how to get rid of it… if there is some other way please let me know.

  • Guest

    Tried the included utility, and the manual mode. Security Tool blocked the utility, and Task Manager when I tried to end the process manually. I'm thinking of installing my hard drive in another computer as a slave and deleting it from there, anyone know if that'd work?

  • Aseem Deshmukh

    It wouldn't let me open task manager, I managed to stop the process by going to control panel and finding view currently running programs, then i could open Malwarebytes Anti Malware

  • Guest

    If you paid for it with a credit card, you can try disputing the charge with your credit card company. If you paid for it any other way, you're probably out of luck.

  • nvd

    hey, i did the safe mode on my computer and restored it and it removed it!! it works, my computer is back to normal!

  • Guest

    How do you get to safe mode?

  • Guest

    To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your “F8 Key” which should bring up the “Windows Advanced Options Menu” as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to “Safe Mode” and press your Enter key.

  • akira

    this “malware” is a joke! i was writing better things than this before i could walk!

    FYI, use linux. no registry, and little to no threat of viruses. (or fake anti-virus for that matter)

  • G

    Best way is to do system restore. Instructions can be found using google but this seems to fix the problem. However, you must be really fast when opening it because if you don't open system restore before that shitty virus starts, you'll have to try again. Hope this helps.

  • Guest

    it tricked me! I imput my credit card and then it charged twice the price it was suppose to be charging. What am I suppose to do? Is there a way to undo the charge??

  • nooker

    If you do actually pay for it, contact your credit card company and ask them to reverse the charges since it is a scam and then monitor your card to see if there are any other errant charges.

  • Guest

    easy….Cnrl alt dlt…asap..as desktop loads…follow the instructions…shut it down once in task manager…look for the numbered entry…fyi 56959955959.exe something like that…then follow the above. nuffsaid

  • Guest

    its malware….dont panic….easy to toast it..30 minutes max of your time once you kill it do use the the below n above…then install 'free 'advanced system care' install avast or free something i prefer avast….again dont panic…its malware or crapware…

  • Necrith

    This is a really annoying one, not only can it be a issue to get it off your p.c, but it will also cram itself into a USB device, making it hard to back-up your files for a re installation.

    i didn't see the registry entries mentioned. I set the pc to an earlier date and downloaded spyware but then system crashed and got into same state as previously when I ran a scan with the spy…doctor. I'm going to try the ctrl alt del thing, or load a ghost image from 3-4 weeks ago

  • Guest

  • Guest

    ..crap I'm fighting with it..but it won't die…:(

  • exprogrammer

    If you restart the computer and relogin you can Crtl+Alt+Delete to get the task manager before the virus takes effect. to restart click the start button and then select shutdown and the click restart.

  • Guest

    This is one annoying virus. But thanks to all of you and your tips and suggestions, it is gone!

  • Outdoorzgirl

    The quickest and easiest way to remove Security Tool is to Restart Computer and quickly press F8 and operate your computer in “Safe Mode”. Once in safe mode, go to system restore and back date computer to the date before this piece of shit malware infected your system.

  • jinadenz

    i have it on mine :S it's bugging me :S ahhhh someone help 🙁 i was just on my myspace and it poped :S

  • Guest

    How do you get to system restore when in “safe mode”

  • Outdoorzgirl

    You should be able to find System Restore in safe mode just as you normally would when not in safe mode. I had it as a shortcut on my computer, so that I could access it quickly.

  • frustratedmom

    I just wanted to say thanks for the extremely helpful information.

  • remco

  • rodii

    Contact your credit card company and dispute the charges if it's not too late.

  • Guest

    This program blocks the ability to get to the registry in order to delete it; as well it keeps you from deleting the program files because it's running and you can't get into task manager either because it blocks it from running. I had to reinstall windows all together.

  • ITMan

    Boot into a PEcd and change the run comands and right a bat to kill the reg and then rin malwarebytes.

  • Guest

    I was able to utilize rkill and then combofix to remove this infestation. This program is able to take other filenames ie different numbers.

  • BLau

    The advice written below by”Outdoorzgirl” (ie – Restart > F8 > Safe mode > System Restore) worked perfectly for me to delete this disgusting scam attempt. Thanks so much for the advice.

    The latest filenames have been expanded into more than one name. In my case, it was named 1622518, 48843229, and 56863028. You should expect its naming convention evolevs, as these idiots must be reading this column as well!

  • Guest

    Nonsense.. don't download anything.. just restart your computer in safe-mode and do a system recovery… withing seconds your computer will go back to normal!!

  • DigohD

    Try creating a new user accout with admin rights and delete the virus while logged in on that account. I don't know if this works in XP or older, but in vista and Windows 7 viruses apparently can't infect more then one user account…

    find the file where is it sitting, using the short cut on your desktop, rename the file, then move it. log off windows and then back on, delete the file and the shortcut, restart windows and its gone, you will need to reset your browser setting, cos it alters them

    how to get sucurity tool

  • Guest

    I send a coment an hour ago and didnt show up??????????????

  • Matt

    Oh, this was so annoying! To delete it, go to safe mode- computer- security tool- right click and click on go to file location- see the random number – delete it and you are free at last

  • Matt

    To go to safe mode press F8 when starting up. I had this for weeks before i got rid of it. DONT PAY ANYONE TO GET RID OF IT i am nit good with computers but was able to manually remove it.

    ~~ Curse whoever made this!

  • Guest

    attempting to download the spydoctor won't work if it has taken over your computer. You have to manually delete it.

  • JamesGeddes

    For me, this also prevented Windows Task Manager in Winodws Xp, so make sure you get it up quickly before it has a chance to block it! Generally, as with most viruses, the best way to get rid of it is to back up your data, then format the hard drive…

  • blacklabel002

    i use revo unistaler pro in windo seven safe mode and that 's it

  • Guest

    I simply went to the Program files library, renamed the 8-digit exe file. Rebot and it was gone!

  • Guest

    go through the safe mode by pressing F8 and then restore your system settings. Got rid of the program in a few minutes.

  • Guest

    go to C Drive>> Windows >> System 32 >> right click on it and delete it, make sure you do it in safe moe, it worked for me and many other people.

  • Guest

    how do i get this awful security tool uninstalled

  • Guest

    safe mode worked perfectly for me, thanks chaps. PS there must be someone out there who can invent a nice virus to return to these bar stards

  • Guest

    Use the Safe Mode – F8 (May need to press F8 a number of times) when you first turn on the computer. Then go to Help & Support under Start and then find
    Undo Changes with System Restore. Make changes to previous date and your
    computer should restart with no problems!!
    All The Best!!

  • Guest

    Thanks for the info in comments I did the F8 started in Safe Mode and restored to earlier point work great.

  • Guest

    try this!!! first – For the cautious and techno-infantile …if you do a safe boot – use F8 as windows is loading and then repair or restore from your last update (everyone does have some antiviral software?) the virus will be gone as though it never was!

  • Guest

    i stopped it for a while with task manager but now it has come back and i cant get task manager

    how do i get this shit off

  • Guest

    please show me how to remove security tool off my pc

  • Dan

    I just removed this….finally…off my home desktop. Was not running PC Tools until now. Nothing worked to get rid of it except within SafeMode with Networking. Spyware removal did not do it. I needed to download Killbox to remove the file. It named itself c:ProgramData8830502488305024.net

  • Guest

    PC Tools does not merely do it with this version. Need to use Killbox in SafeMode to remove the file by name. Use properties to find the name of the file.

  • Guest

    It appeared as a file named 76292733.exe on my laptop. In safe mode I ran Defender and could see it running along with three unamed files. I removed them all and it got rid. Need to check for these other files suggested above too.

  • Guest

    is there anything i can buy to get rid of it? because i had antivirus on my computer and it doesnt let me scan it anymore. i cant even get on the internet to download any of the links on this website to get rid of it.

    thank you

  • Guest

    if you start in safe mode then right click icon and say open file location boom you got it and then just delete and empty recycle bin. simple.

  • Guest

    Al you need to do is go to the file location and rename the folder. Restart the computer then remove that folder. That's all that you need to do.

  • Guest

    you have to reboot your computer in safe mode with networking on.
    you then download malwarebytes. run a quick scan.
    delete all probems when complete.
    reboot computer in normal mode.

    to reboot computer in safe mode and vice versa press f8 repeatedly when computer starts up.

  • Guest

    thank you person below my comment. I almost chucked my laptop at the wall untill i followed your instructions and got rid of that ST BS.

  • Guest

    Switch on computer in protected mode using key F8. Select working in Safe Mode. Use system restore to go back a day or so before attack. Computer will restart minus the infection. Now do a scan with a virus / spyware check. Its as easy as that!

  • Guest

  • Kath

    what do you do if you can't open the internet to download this removal. It will not let me open anything to stop it and I didn't download or accecpt anything

  • Guest

    I saw not mention that with Security Tool is also installed a program called Antimalware Doctor that is similar. Why is there website not shut down and the perps charged for this?

  • Guest

    Security Tool has shut off Windows Defender and is not alowing access to it. Also, it keeps trying to access the internet through my flash player. Defender works in safe mode only and does not find any problems. I cannot download any new software either.

  • Guest

    I was a victim of this fraud. after closing my card I disputed the charges and received a full refund two days later.McAfee ended up finding and deleting this god forsaken virus. I never had to downloand any programs or follow tedious directions to remove this virus.

    The security tool will not let you connect to the internet or any program that seems to be a threat to its removal and will eventually block all attempts to open any programs

    It has migrated to every file and app. Can't open anything. It blocks access to internet and has corrupted my wireless modem. Nothing works, safe mode, properties, command mode, etc. Think I will just erase all and re-install from scratch. What do you think. I am soooooo frustrated.

  • Guest

    “Security Tool” is the nastiest little peace I ever had to deal with. after it installed it self????
    My solution was: start computer in safe mode and delete the specific files, including “run-regedit-find file—- and the rest is history. Chris

    “Security Tool” Trojan virus..goes now with 107980243.exe..
    It is hard to remove…to detect this virus:
    located in “my computer” “hard drive C”…the virus file is included with folders or files, in the hard drive C, just delete that file

  • Guest

    Which file do I need to delete? Nothing I have seen is helpful.

  • mike s

    secutiry toos changes the .exe name ALL the time, its randomly generated …. use delete the .exe in SAME MODE! it can easily be deleted that way, MBAM, Webroot, spyware doctor all detect and delete it. safe mode is KEY! you can use ur PC normally 2 install webroot or mbam to delete it!

  • NavyTechGuy

    New note on this: The SecurityTool interface looks exactly the same but new versions of the virus seem to be amped up. It will also block you from getting to your Remove Programs tool in Control Panel and will block any website that may tell you how to get rid of it. Nasty virus indeed.

  • Guest

    I encountered this problem around the 5 11 10,I have removed my copy of xp and reinstalled a new program.It has cost me a great deal of time and worry.
    Why can't the police prosecute Security Tool ? I just can't understand why!!
