How to Remove Security Tool Virus / Malware

Hey everyone,

We have seen a lot of computers infected with the security tool virus that pops up a blue screen and starts scanning your computer automatically. Then it lists a ton of various viruses, trojans and spyware that it supposedly finds. It also runs under aliases such as System Security and Total Security.

If you try to close out of it, it just comes back up again. It’s pretty nasty.

So this is how to remove it:

1. Download Malware Bytes AntiMalware
2. Install the Malware-Bytes Program
3. Update the Malware-Bytes Program
4. Do a FULL SCAN on your computer.
5. Delete all infected files.

This will usually find and remove all instances of the security tool and prevent it from opening again.

If for some reason your web browser wont open the website to download the program, or if the virus wont let you do ANYTHING at all, then you must bring it in to the professionals here at CompRite in Portland, OR or Vancouver, WA. We have 5 convenient locations, so there’s a CompRite near you!
