    Default Security Tools Malware

    I have a laptop which is currently infected with "Security Tools" malware. I have not seen anything in this area about how I can optain any tools to elimanate this nor does my zone alarm antivirus/antispyware pick this up.
    This program has created 3 files in C:/Documents and Settings/AllUsers/Application Data/75469031 and 29864332 and 23927932. Also a icon named Security Tools.
    I have gone into safe mode deleted all files in regedit pertaining to the 3 long numbers. I have gone into msconfig to uncheck under Startup the .exe files, and deleted the files in explorer. Now I know there is probably more files to delete, I just don't know. I have also ran Lavasoft but it does not pick up anything either.
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Remove other antimalware tools other then the ones mentioned in the link above.

    Thumbs up Re: Security Tools Malware

    Thank you Fax! I did as you suggested. I also installed Malwarebytes. Boy, was this laptop infected with several malware. Between Zone Alarm and malwarebytes and going through the restore I think everything got cleaned up.
    Thank you again!
