Anti Software Scam

To whom it may concern,

Following the attack by Security Tool, I have cancelled my credit card in order that the supplier will not try to debit another amount since it has all information regarding my credit card Visa. The Security Tool antivirus software is an empty software that invades your computer and it takes many hours of research to find the appropriate description and removal instructions to delete this application.

I can't understand why you are supporting this fraudulent supplier. I am sure I won't be the last person to be robbed on line.

Refund credit for fraudulent rogue antivirus software. Total amount of purchase $52.73CA, transaction date March 11, 2010, approximately around 11:50 p.m. TRansaction process by CHRPAY.COM, EUROSOFT

Title: Security Tool Also known as: SecurityTool

Type: Spyware

Severity scale: (72 / 100)

Security Tool is a rogue antivirus application that deliberately gives reports of false system security threats on your computer and displays fake security alerts or notifications to make you think your PC is infected with malware. The misleading application is from the same family as Total security 2009 and System Security. When installed, SecurityTool will be configured to start automatically when you log on into Windows. Then it will imitate system scan and display a variety of infections that can't be removed unless you purchase the program. The files detected during the scan are either harmless or legitimate system files and can't cause any damage to your computer.

Security Tool is pushed through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners and other malicious software. It is installed along with Trojans FakeAV that display fake security warnings and promote SecurityTool malware. Once running, the bogus program will block legit programs and especially anti-virus software. Another interesting thing is that if you click on Updates button, you will see "Updating", but actually there is no network activity. It's just another argument why Security Tool is classified as a rogue security application. What is more, this parasite will impersonate Windows Security Center and constantly display warnings/notifications about serious security threats and privacy issues. It may claim that your computer is under attack by an Internet virus or that private data can be stolen. For example:

"Security Tool Warning

Spyware.IEMonster activity detected. This is spyware that attempts to steal passwords from Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Outlook and other programs. Click here to remove it immediately with SecurityTool."

To make things worse, SecurityTool will hijack web browsers and block certain security websites obviously to protect itself from being deleted. It should be already obvious that this program is a scam. Do not purchase it. Instead, please use the removal guide below to remove Security Tool from your PC manually for free.
