Usually rogue antispyware does not come alone. These malicious computer threats come in batches and System Tool is of not exception. It is from the same nest as Security Tool and these rogues are very good at pretending to be reliable security programs. Due to its sophisticated design System Tool, does not differ from legitimate antivirus programs and it manages to fool numbers of users worldwide. Unsuspecting users end up believing that their computers are infected and their only hope is none the other but System Tool.
As it has been mentioned before, System Tool does not come alone. It could hardly enter your computer if it weren’t bundled with other types of malware such as Trojans, for example. Trojan infection is one of the ways how System Tool manages to get into the targeted computers. It does not need your consent to enter your system, and therefore this infection is extremely cunning and dangerous. System Tool might be residing in your computer already without you even knowing it. Thus you need to regularly perform system scans, checking for any suspicious activity.
System Tool targets computers that run on Windows XP, Windows Vista and/or Windows 7. Depending on which operating system you have in your computer, once System Tool gets installed, it drops a randomly named folder in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ directory for Windows XP, or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ directory for Windows Vista and Windows 7. Then it changes your system settings and loads automatically whenever you boot your computer.
In a sense, System Tool works just like any other rogue. It hinders your system performance and sends you a whole load of fake security alert messages, hoping to make you think that you are seriously infected with malware and you need to use System Tool to remove all these non-existent worms and Trojans. It also blocks your .exe files from running, with a pretense that they are infected and need to be closed for the sake of the entire system:
Application cannot be executed. The file cmd.exe is infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.
If you ignore these warnings, System Tool changes your desktop background to get your attention into this:
