System Tool Malware: This is what I have so far in this battle:
First of all: I am running XPpro, AMD Athlon 64x2 dual core processor 4200+, but running 32, ASUS mb 2.2Ghz and 1Gig Ram.
I started up in Safe Mode w/Networking but I can't get any of the Rkill links to work, (I downloaded them all). I tried to run MBAM from my USB drive, but the update was old and infected pc will not connect to the internet. So I cant get the MBAM update. I went and checked the LAN connections changed out the .bat file and the HOST file like your site suggested on the System Tool Removal page. Still, wont connect so that I can download MBAM update. The MBAM did run and removed 3 bad files. I will post more after noon today 1/16/11.
I managed to get inside the infected machine through the "save file" on the "system tool" program itself, even into the hidden files, but not into the registry, I guess system tool must be blocking it. Also, I turned off system restore, but now it wont let me turn it back on.
Im hoping someone has experience with this beast and will help this humble child of God out. . .
Thank you pre-feat,
