Hey everyone I am new to Bleeping Computer and have a serious problem or at least its serious enough where I need help. Somehow I have acquired a virus that goes by the name of "System Tool". It looks like an anti-virus/Spy-ware protection program but it is definitely not. It is even nice enough to high jack the background with a clever warning. This beauty will now allow me to access my programs in normal start up mode, and malwarebytes in safe mode could not remove it. Is anyone knowledgeable on this and know how to remove it? Any help would be much appreciated.

That(System Tool 2011)is running rampant right now! I'll have to let the experts walk you through that one. Lot of rules on this site.....although a system restore might put you in a better spot for the time being. I never use the system restore because of the available tools out there, but it might be a short term fix.
