Help! - Security Tool Attack Tags: Security Download Control Panel Antivirus Apps Last response: April 14, 2010 2:19 AM in Applications Share Elvaca April 12, 2010 1:44:37 AM Hey everyone. A member of my family accidentally downloaded this "Security Tool" program on her laptop which started opening many pop-ups a lot which were annoying and didn't let her open control panel and others. So I go rid of the program and downloaded avast anti virus (she didn't have anti virus) and doing a full scan right now. Now Im reading some posts and it says that they had to download Malwarebytes to get rid of it. I see no signs of the program now, do I need to download it? What do I do?
