I was hit by the Security Tool virus about two hours ago, and I was hit with dozens of pop-ups claiming that my computer was infected. When I tried to run some programs, even "regedit", it said they were infected with a worm and wouldn't open.
I scanned with SUPERAntiSpyware and managed to catch a Trojan.Dropper and several other bugs.
But when I rebooted, I wanted to scan with Malwarebytes since it may completely eliminate the virus. But it would not open. I tried to uninstall and install again, but all it said was "error code 2" and could not "locate the file"
I just did a System Restore since I still got pop-ups, and my computer was successfully restored to an earlier time.
But I still can't open Malwarebytes....
I am also thinking that I still have traces of the Security Tool virus.
Here was the SUPERAntiSpyware scan I got:
