Hi!!!

I'm trying to follow the steps from the Security Tool removal guide.
I can download rkill,but i can't run it.It says "...is not a valid Win32 application" when I doubleclick it.

Also,because of the Security Tool Rogue i can't download the DDS Tool and the other thing for
the rootkits..

Is there any way that i can avoid a format?What should I do?

I'm new to this site and to all this stuff,so,please,be patient :thumbsup:

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized Malware Removal forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Please describe the issues you are experiencing with your computer.

regards, Elise

If you cannot use the Internet or download any required programs to the infected machine, try downloading them from another computer (family member, friend, library, etc) with an Internet connection. Save to a flash (usb, pen, thumb, jump) drive or CD, transfer to the infected machine, then install and run the program(s). If you cannot copy files to your usb drive, make sure it is not "Write Protected".

If you get an alert that Rkill is infected or not valid, ignore it. The alert is just a fake warning given by the rogue software which tries to terminate programs that try to remove it. If you see such a warning, leave the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the warning, this sometimes allows you to bypass the malware's attempt to protect itself so that Rkill can perform its routine.

hi again!

[I can download rkill,but it does not run when i doubleclick..
Says "...is not a valid win32 application".The thing is that
when i try to run it,the system jams-stucks(i dont know the correct word) and i cant doubleclick again.
I have to press "ok" in the box that says "...is not a valid Win32 application" and then doubleclick again..
I cant ignore this message..]

I just had some good news!!!!!!
I couldn't perform a computer scan,but it seems like the free edition!! of AVG did the scheduled scan today,found
SecurityTool and healed it!!!The machine runs fine,but there is still a disgusting icon of this virus in the start menu..
What now?

Should i run DDS?Should I change AVG to another security program?
What do you recomment?
