Hello all. I have a new computer (one of many, Mac and PC) which came with Vista and a free upgrade to Windows 7. After less than 3 months, it has been taken over by the Security Tool virus, and I found this website in order to hopefully find out how to get rid of it.

I am understandably cautious of every website after having this happen. I use mostly Mac, so it is not a problem I'm used to dealing with. I'm not new at computers having built one myself several years ago. I use XP on the pc's, and it's solid as a rock. I may need to consult with several of the forums, but so far I am very glad to have found a site which can help me with a lot of questions.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.
