Just to be clear first and foremost. I'm not a regular technician on this forum, but i have dealt with Security tool before.
If you have a secondary computer to download programs through put them on a flash drive and transfer them
First you should download rkill from a known good source.
While downloading just to be safe, you may want to rename the files from something other than rkill.http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.comhttp://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.exehttp://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.pifhttp://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr
You will also want to download malewarebytes from a known good source
I would just use http://www.malwarebytes.org/
When running rkill on windows 7 or vista you will need to right click and use the "run as administrator" option.
Try running rkill a few times, the dos box should pop up saying it is terminating known malware processes.
If the exe does not work, try the com version, but make sure to run as Administartor
Once rkill successfully runs, a notepad file should open up with what it stopped.
Now, don't restart the computer.
Remove malewarebytes if its installed, and reinstall it.
Update to the latest definitions.
To be on the safe side i would suggest running a full system scan.
Any entires it finds, remove them.
At this time your computer should be rid of Security tool kit.
If your internet is not working, navigate to Internet explorer -> Internet Options-> Connections tab -> Lan Settings-> uncheck use a proxy server
Hope this helps, and i'll try to check back here to see if its resolved.
Mods: didn't mean to step on anyone's toes, if it is not alright that i posted instructions. Tell me and i will willingly remove them.
