Hello, I am currently under siege by what appears to be a Trojan Horse.

I am using Windows Vista Home Regular (non-premium) Edition. I have run AVG and McAfee virus scans, but they have not come up with anything.

I am currently running the computer in safe mode, because if booted in regular mode, as soon as the Trojan starts running upon startup, it does not let me run any other program or open any windows. It's disguised as a faulty security program called "System Tool" and I have not downloaded it, but I turned off my computer after being infected without turning System Restore off and have been dealing with this for 3 days. I have looked at my task manager while on safe mode and have not seen it there either.

Thank you for any and all advice given, much appreciated!
