How do I take off Security Tool from my computer completely?

By mistake, Security Tool was installed in my computer while I was browsing the web. I believe it is some kind of virus because it kept telling me my PC is infected, so I need to use their tool. I can’t locate it using “Add & remove” at Control panel, Avast, or EasyCleaner. Then my PC got paralyzed. I was able to make it run again using System Restore. How do I make sure it’s not in my PC anymore? Please help… Thank you.

    Most viruses run when you turn on your computer.
    You cannot remove something that is running; so either go to [Start] and [Run…] or create a shortcut to ‘msconfig.exe’; load it up, click the ‘Start-up’ tab and disable and unnecessary start-up entries.

    Restart your computer, and hopefully you would have disabled the virus.
    Download and install some good anti-virus software from the Internet (, e.g. Zone Alarm is a good choice and scan your entire computer.

    If all goes to fail, then I would just backup your files and reinstall.

    Also, go to regedit.exe
