Somehow we got the malware Security Tool on our computer. Our desktop icons are of course missing and the stupid notfications pop up constatly making it nearly impossiable to click on anything. The internet and some items on the Start menu work (not Task Manager or other programs but I can bring up Add/Remove, etc). I was able to get rkill.exe, rkill.scr and rkill.com (the other file had a broken link so I could not download it) onto my desktop and view my icons by using the Run feature but none of them will terminate Security Tool. I can get the black screen to pop up and is says it's searching and to be patient but the screen disappears within seconds (or milliseconds...). I'm fustrated and just want to get this thing taken care of - any suggestions outside of dumping everything and just reloading Windows from the ground up?
