A virus infected itself on my computer. I formated my computer yesterday and the default security program for it was Mcafee but I had some problems browsing the internet so I removed it and it infected itself when I had no security.

so, basically I'm using windows vista home premium. the virus is posing as a security program called "Security Tool" and it's detected every program as a walware and closing it. I try opening a rar file but it closed because "Security Tool" says it has a worm. I tried to install Norton so I can run a scan and delete it but it closes the exe file and it even closes task manager saying it's a worm.

how do I delete this "Security tool" so I can run programs again and install a Norton.
