If you havent come accross this evil git, it is a belter. First thing you'll notice is a pop-up advising you that your anti-virus programe is infected, then another pop-up advising that System Tools is scanning your system, then this.. Nice bit of Chinglese there. Everything is spazzed so you cant run Malaware or anything else. Firefox will work because the scam is, they want you to pay $60 to 'fix' the problem. A complete rip-off. Theres loads of advice out there - Google 'Remove system tools 2011'. Most of them are trying to flog an anti-malware product which, of course, could be another rip-off from the Syetem Tools gits. But theres a couple of handy Blogs. One suggested starting in Safe Mode by hammering F8 on re-boot, which I completely failed to do (I'm rubbish with tech and UberGeek is working from home this week. That is tech-speak for having a doss with his new baby) Another suggested hammering Alt-Ctrl-Delete to enable the task manager. I tried this a few times with no success then on the 4th atempt it worked. Task Manager. So I hit End Process on every exe I didnt recognise, starting with one that was a bunch of numbers. And it worked. Pop-ups vanished and all back to normal. A quick scan with Malaware revealed nothing nasty. I'm doing a full scan now, but so far, nothing. Given that I havent really done much, I CANNOT have removed his very clever and evil little beast. Any advice welcome, bearing in mind I dont know a root file from a nail file.
