System Tool. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

System Tool is also known as SystemTool, System Tool 2011, System Tool 2012 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
Severity scale:  

2012 Update: there are new versions of this tool called: System Tool 2011 and System Tool 2012.

System Tool is a rogue security program from the same family as Security Tool. It pretends to be a legitimate antivirus program, but actually it is nothing more but a scam which may also be called System Tool 2011 or System Tool 2.20. The rogue program is distributed through the use of fake online scanners, bogus websites and other malicious software. Once installed, it will pretend to scan your computer for malware and then it will state that your computer is infected with spyware, adware, Trojans and other viruses. Finally, it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove supposedly found infections from your computer. It uses the same payment pages as Security Tool virus. Don't pay for this rogue program. It won't protect your computer. Instead, please remove System Tool 2011 from your computer immediately. Please use the removal instructions outlined below. You can choose to remove this virus manually or using an automatic System Tool removal tool.

SystemTool 2011 scareware is a very annoying rogue program because it displays fake security alerts and popups like every one or two minutes. What is more, it will block nearly all programs on your computer claiming that they are infected with some sort of malware. The fake error message reads:

Application cannot be executed. The file cmd.exe is infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.

It will constantly display fake security warnings about serious security and privacy problems. It will even state that your files can be deleted or your credit card information can be stolen. That's not true. System is a just another rogue, it won't delete your files. Don't worry. The text of these messages include:

Last, but not least, it will change the background of your dekstop with its own which states that your computer is infected with spyware. The text of the fake background image:

Your're in Danger!
Your Computer is infected with Spyware!

All you do with your computer is stored forever in your hard disk. When you visit sites, send emails... All your actions are logged. And it is impossible to remove them with standard tools. Your data is still available for forensics, and in some cases
