Security Tool, Eliminates all downloads, useage of AVG Free, Crap Cleaner, Disc Cleanup, System Rstore.

De-Fragmenter - just about anything excepting (as yet) incoming email. Each time I have attempted

to download any virus elimination Security Tool stops the process immediately. I have tried to install

Spy Doctor due to the ineffectiveness of AVG Free and all attempts to download that have

been curtailed by Security Tool. All of the time I am faced by the fake warnings of Security Tool and

it attempts to sell me the alternative to OK it's take-over. How can I remove it please ?

As you probably know by now this is one nasty mother. The best fix comes from Bleeping computer.

Hi :thumbsup:.

i suggest that you try following (exactly) the instructions at BC Removal Guide, Security Tool.

Note that the instructions include details (the where and the how) on where to post if you continue to have problems.

bicyclebill / hamluis, I have tried many times both of your fixes and always SpyHunter blocks the run.

No spyware removal tool works inc. that of Spyware Doctor / STOPzilla and even SpyHunters Malware

Scanner is a no - go., The same goes for https://www.enigmasoftware.com/blocked/

I do have an IT man here on Wednesday for hoped for salvation.

Thank you both for trying.

Tried posted fix, didn't work, blanked out on install of Malwarebytes.
Solution:

Boot into safe mode - login as administrator - install malwarebytes as per standard, run full scan, identified 5 objects, clean and reboot PC - so far all clean and working.

EDIT: Removed listed email address and reference to same to protect from spam bots ~ Hamluis.
