1. I got Security Tools Virus 2010 on the Vista (Laptop)
2. I already tried system restore, however whenever I do system restore, it would finish by saying "Your computer has not completely finished blah blah blah, would you like to try again?" I did this 3 times in a row and got the same exact message at the end. So I gave up on System Restore. I found out that I do not have any restore points on my laptop. I do not know why, but System Restore was on, however the restore points were not saved?
3. Right now I am currently using SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to scan for viruses. This is the solution I have come to:
a) Use Super to scan, delete and restart
Then use Malware to scan, delete and hopefully the virus will be gone.
I have this one problem with this plan. So far, it has been successful on SuperAntiSpyware, I deleted around 114 threats (but I never let the scan finish) why? Because it always freezes whenever the process starts to scan this location:
In other words, I can't complete my scan, and cannot go on to step B Same problem with Malware, for some reason they just seem to freeze at this point and not respond. I found the location but I can't install it! I don't know what to do! Does anyone have an alternative way to delete this virus or a solution to the problems I have had?
Please and Thank You !! x_x
(P.S. Omg I want to track down the person who made this stupid virus and personally murder him!! >:[ )
Oh yeah, I am able to download stuff without having Security Tools pop up, by opening Task Manager in the very beginning of my Start up, and ending the process so that it doesn't pop up anymore. I tried scanning for the virus in Safe Mode as well, but I run into the same problem.
I have tried using other Anti-Virus scans and also downloaded rkill before scanning. I have even tried turning System Restore off and then scan. However none of these solutions work.
I do not want to reformat my computer because then I need to buy the disks that are needed ;[ I'm a noobie at doing these things!!
