Hi all, I'm sure you have something about this one, but I can't find it. A program called Security Tool has installed on my daughter's lap top and take control. Can't run any program, when you attempt to execute a program it blocks it and tells you you have infected files and need to buy their program. I have attempted to update and run Malware and it will not allow the update to be installed. Any help would be appreciated, if there is info about this on your site please direct me to it.

It sounds like you may have something running which is preventing you from being able to run standard programs. What I normally do is use Rkill to stop the malware processes that start when the computer comes on. Then I run the Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware. Here are some DL links for the Rkill....
Save it to your desktop and then double click to launch it (With Vista you need to right click and select run as administrator). You should see a little black window open and then close. If you see that box then it worked. If you don't see the black box then delete the file and use another download link and repeat the steps.
Once it runs you should be able to run Malwarebytes and then I would run SUPERAntiSpyware
