Security Tool Aftermath

Post by af4life on Fri Nov 06, 2009 12:56 am

Hi, im new to this forum. I have recently got the Security Tool Malware, (i know there are other threads on this topic, but this is a different issue.) I have successfully removed it, This is how i did it.
I used Alt + F4 to close the Program, then i downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from Download.com and deleted everything it found, then ran SUPERanti-spyware PRO and deleted everything it found, also i used The manual method to check all the /app data and Registry entries to clean everything out completely. I do not get the Security Tool popup when i start up my Comp, so that is fȋxed.

Here is my problem, nȯne of my games, (BF2, Steam app, CSS, HL2), nothing works. I double click them, i get a black screen and then a CTD. Another issue is when i use IE to search for something like, "spyware removal" or "how to remove Security Tool" i would click on a site and i would be redirected to another hacker/infected/POS site. So this tells me i still have the Internet Optimizer Adware, but i cant seem to find and remove it. And last, when i use any webpage and i want to scroll its not smooth, its like the computer lags a lot. Its really laggy, and very annoying. It only started doing this after virus.

Thanks for all the help guys.

  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
