Security Tool is a rogue antispyware application that is designed to behave like a real antivirus program in order to lull users into believing that it can accomplish a task that is far beyond its capabilities. It is a new version of such rogues as Total Security 2009 and System Security. The reason why Security Tool arrives at your system is very simple – it wants your money. That is to say, not exactly the rogue itself the people who have created it to rip you off. If you are not careful, you might fall into a trap that is very hard to get out from.
Rogues have a wide scheme or distribution, but as far as Security Tool is concerned, it is usually spread together with Trojan infection or through hacked websites. Trojans seldom come alone, they are always accompanied by some other programs, or they can download and execute arbitrary files and consequently install rogues like Security Tool without your knowledge or confirmation. That is why you need to be extra cautious when you brown the Internet. Avoid suspicious websites especially those that have a lot of flashy advertisements that are simply screeching at you to be clicked on.
It is easy to tell when you are infected with Security Tool, because this rogue has a distinctive blue interface and it pops into your screen to perform a system scan once it is installed and running. The rogue will make you think that you are infected with numerous parasites and everything will seem to be true, because your computer will run slow, you won’t be able to run a few programs, and your internet connection might get blocked too. But do not be fooled by this sophisticated act. Your computer is slow because of Security Tool and all the computer safety alert notifications that you received are forged by the rogue.
Needless to say, that you need to remove Security Tool from your system as soon as possible, because not treating the infection can result in dire consequences. If you are not sure how to do it manually, better opt for automatic removal, because incorrect manual removal can cause even more serious damage your computer. Invest in a good antispyware tool that will detect and terminate Security Tool along with all its components.
