Security Tool is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as System Security,Total Security 2009, or Total Security. Security Tool is promoted through pop-ups, Trojans and malware webites. Security Tool uses fake security alerts and system scan results to make computer users believe that your computer is infected.

If you click on the pop-up you will be brought to a page that shows an advertisement that pretends to be a fake online anti-malware scanner. At the end of the advertisement, it will state that there are infections and then prompt you to download and install Security Tool onto your computer. If you have a PC infected with Security Tool, you’re probably reading this article so you can understand how to get rid of this annoying spyware.
