Is the problem that when you run rkill, security tool automatically closes it? If so, keep running rkill over and over . It will eventually catch and terminate the malware processes.

Do u have any recommendations to restore display screen with my icons?

I see that you are #3 on member list, I'm thinking you had a part in starting this web site; is that accurate? If so, thank you for being so user friendly. Great thing about it being so easy, is that I'm going walk a friend through the same process to eliminate Security Tool.

Cheers,
Christine

Spyware Doctor was actually an ad, not part of the guide. You may want to consider trying to get a refund and instead use this program that is free:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:

MalwareBytes' AntiMalware download link

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediatly.

Let me know after a reboot if the blue screen is gone.
