And welcome to BleepingComputer, and I see you are posting about Security Tool Malware. Have you followed this How do I remove Security Tool Virus?

It may be pertinent to your issue.

I just took this out for a user yesterday (Windows Vista). Restart in Safe Mode, load MalwareBytes and run it. Reboot.

Hope that helps.
