Hi1 Magdalene,

This Security Tool is a deceitful spyware that makes use of Trojans to enter to your system without you knowing it. Once you start your PC, it will automatically log in and will show pop-up windows, will do some fake scans and tell you that your system is infected. Then it will prompt you to purchase a specific software. Don't be a victim, try one of the following methods to remove this Security Tool.

1. First is to disable the security tool:

Reboot into safe mode (with networking) by pressing F8 right after reboot, or
Press ctrl+shift+esc just after you log in to Windows, see processes tab and halt numerical processes.

2. Erase the security tool files:

Find out where is the security tool shortcut is, usually it's on the desktop, or
Search for the file name that is similar to the processes that has been stopped.

3. Reboot and use the Spyware Doctor to scan your system.


Do safe mode rebooting.
Start MSCONFIG and clean up the startup entries, keep window open.
Find MSCONFIG entries, folders located in C:Program Files or could be in C:Program Files (x86). Then delete the folder.
In Application Data Folder, delete those that are named numerically. You may right-click on the Security Tool icon to see where they are placed.
Erase the DLLS listed under.
Next, reboot into safe mode (with networking).
Then download Spyware Doctor, have a system scan and delete anything that it may find.
You may reactivate other misconfig entries.
Restart again and do a follow-up scan.

Hope it will solve your issue.
