Computer been taken over by Security Tool

Post by MrMario on Sat Dec 19, 2009 6:07 pm

Just logged into my other computer finding it having virus, trojens, worms etc..... I can't even get into my add and remove programs restore tool etc... . It has taken over the computer. It says its going to infect any computers that is connected to the same network so I am worried about installing malware file to my usb to install.

Software that is doing this is called Security Tool no clue how it got there.


EDIT

Can't even start the software here that will remove it.



Thanks


MrMario

It won't allow me to run is I keep getting a message from Security Tool saying

HiJackthis.exe is infected with worm, lsas.Blaster.keyloger. This worm is trying to send your credit card details using HiJackthis.exe to connect to the remote host.

Thanks for the help Smile

Thank You for your help. It looks better but I am not 100% sure. I don't see any Security Tool of any kind.
