Default Security Tool Virus

Just had a ball of fun trying to get rid of Security Tool virus on my Drew laptop. Their antivirus/antispyware sucks. To add to my frustration, I seem to have gotten a newer version of the virus so I couldn't find the location & names of the files/programs on the internet. If anybody else has this problem:

File is in C>Docs & Settings>(yourUserName)/LocalSettings>ApplicationData

C>Docs & Settings>AllUsers>ApplicationData>Alafo>xypo.exe

process 43226040.exe

Also search for these in registry and delete

I had the same problem. It was ugly. Good luck.

I downloaded Avast on my Drew Laptop and it found about 15 viruses. At least one of them I knew about and couldnt find. It would redirect my google searches to different sites. Very annoying.
