My laptop is infected with a malware that looks exactly like System Tool but it calls itself Windows Tool. I tried to download rkill and it stops all attempts to open it or Malwarebytes. I tried to save rkill to a cd on my desktop but I keep getting the message "You cannot save to this location. Please choose another location." Meanwhile, the laptop has reached some kind of overkill and shut itself down.

This is the 4th time my laptop has been infected and the other times I was able to do a system restore and get rid of it, but this time my system restore only has one option and it's not back far enough; any help with the reason for that would also be very appreciated.

Finally, this is the laptop that my teen son uses to play Blockland and he keeps infecting the )#&($*&%# thing. Is Blockland doing this or is he sneaking onto other sites? I've never found anything in history that would show that, but I am really interested in knowing where NOT to go so we can stop encountering this.

Thanks for all your help.

Blockland itself isn't harmful. . . but any third party mods or applications might be. There's no way to be absolutely certain. Another possibility is that the machine was never really clean after the first infection. System restore is rarely sufficient for removing malware.

One thing you can try.

From the following page. . . download the version of Rkill titled iexplore.exe. See if you can get that one to run. If successful, continue with the steps in the following guide. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-tool

If that doesn't work let me know.
