I have run the following, to rid myself of the "System Tool" virus ( btw... is this same as the older "Security Tool" Virus ??
Anyway... I followed these instructions, BUT *
Download the Stinger tool from the link below:
1. Double-click Stinger and select Preferences.
2. Enable the Report Applications option.
3. Click OK.
4. Click Scan Now and allow the scan to complete.
NOTE: During the scan, you may receive a clean error during on certain .cab files. Ignore the error and allow the scan to complete. The files will be removed when the system is restarted.
5. Restart your computer.
6. Run Stinger again using the steps above.
* -- I ran this, THREE Times, but ONLY under a Standard User Account, since This Virus will NOT allow Stinger.exe to be Run under The Administrator.
My Adminsitrator, with alll of my Data Files, is the ONLY that appears Affected by the ~System Tool~ Virus
Even before I ran Stinger.exe under a Standard User -- THAT particular Standard User appeared UNAFFECTED.
I do not understand, why using Stinger.exe under a Standard User, would not ALSO "FIX" My Administrator ??
BOTTOM LINE -- DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING THAT WILL FIX MY ADMINISTRATOR PROFILE ??
Thank you, Fatigued
Could you register on the Getsusp form and download run that tool. It must scan and finish in 3-5 minutes and generate a log.
Please upload the log file on the next post. we will check and inform you which file needs to be taken out.
What happens when you right click on the file and select Run as Administrator?
Suggest that everybody contracting System Tools Virus demand that McAfee not charge for virus removal because McAfee lists the site on Google.com (
search?q=spadassin&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=&oe= ) as "SAFE". Upon clicking on the center image the Tool Systems virus is contracted.
This has happened to my brother and i knew what to do right away.
First download MalwareBytes (Download in SafeMode)
Second when its done downloading and you install it make sure Launch Malware bytes and Update Malware Bytes is checked.
Third run Malware bytes and put Full Scan
Wait for the full scan to finish up and make sure to check all infected files.
Click Remove Selected and reboot your computer in Normal Mode
Now you will see that it is gone.
Hope I helped
