Windows 7: System Tool 2011 Virus

System Tool Scareware

Hey Guys,

Ive just dealt with three of these this weekend alone. The best, and easiest way Ive found to reverse the problem is by using System Restore. Just press F7 during the boot sequence, then F8 in the next screen, click on System Restore, choose a restore point/date, and let it run. Doing this has fixed all of the systems I have repaired lately in about 5 or 10 minutes.

Hope this helps.

removal of system tool 2011

Hi…………… really, system tool 2011 is a critical problem which completely damages the performance of our PC. Actually, system tool 2011 is a fake application which creates fraudulent error messages to ensure us about the presence of virus in our system. But, in actual it is not so.


Beside this, system tool 2011 corrupts all the important files of system and even don’t allow you to open the task manager window, therefore, you can't remove it from the system manually. So, to remove system tool 2011 you can use system tool 2011 removal software which quickly detect virus and make your system free from this fake application.

Hello hp1 and welcome to Seven Forums.

With all due respect I think there's a better chance of removal using a couple of tried and true free on-demand scanners. Namely, Malwarebytes free, SuperAntispyware free, and Hitman Pro free.

Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer

SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

Hitman Pro 3 - SurfRight

But once a computer gets infected with any kind of malware, the only sure way to know it's clean is to reinstall everything either from a known clean system image or the old fashioned way of reformatting/reinstalling everything from scratch.

Remove System Tool and SystemTool (Uninstall Guide)

But to be sure you may be more secure using an image backup or wipe the disc and reinstall everything. System image restore is just minutes away. But if you don't have one then...I know this is burdensome and will take a lot of hours (if you wipe and re-install) but you will be sure it will be gone.

Goodluck

Drag the pop up

These rogue anti-viruses are what he has trouble with. It's sometimes possible just to remove some of the other things with a quick MBAM scan, but these things are just too hard for me to get rid of by myself.

The one that really has me stumped right now is "System Tools 2011". An icon popped up on the desktop with a padlock logo labeled "System Tools 2011", and it changed the backround to a really cheesy warning about how everything you do is saved on the computer and junk. It's pretty obviously fake, because of the fact that it's just a backround. I can change it to anthing else through the controll panel, and the backround has some binary in the backround to make it look official (Think The Matrix).

The only program it will let me run is IE. Anything else that I try to run comes up with a pop up from the virus that says it's infected. Anything from MBAM to The Snipping Tool.


I can't really think of anything more. I've done some googling and nothing has helped, and I don't want my dad to have to spend money to get this off of his computer.

Any ideas on how I can get this off the computer? It seems so difficult because it won't let anything else run.
Each pop up will only happen once unless you keep making it go away ( I can drag and hide all but a tiny corner is showing) drag them to the corner of the screen so as little as possible is showing and forget about it it can only block one browser at a time it works for me.

So you don't try to remove a virus?
