I had a run in with this years flavor of "system tools" 2011...possible solution is: I was able to boot into safe mode in windows Xp and restore to the last restore point 24 hours earlier, and then restarted the computer normaly and malwarebytes was then able to find and remove the "invalid startup item" and 3 other infected files.

Hi,

I had a run in with this years flavor of "system tools" 2011...possible solution is: I was able to boot into safe mode in windows Xp and restore to the last restore point 24 hours earlier, and then restarted the computer normaly and malwarebytes was then able to find and remove the "invalid startup item" and 3 other infected files.

That may perhaps work for you, but it certainly does not apply for everyone. I would try a different approach, such as removing the infected files physcially (there are guides that point you to the specific ones), and of course altering the Registry. It will not be easy to do for a typical computer user though, so I reckon what you did might help someone in a way.
