Does anyone know how to get rid of a Security Tool?

for free? It keeps popping up that I have viruses but I don't have the code to use it (it was a used laptop). Is there a FREE virus thing I can download to get rid of these??

  • Go to start, then Control Panel & look & click where it says Uninstall programs or something similar like that. Just make sure it loads all the stuff before u click on something so u don't uninstall the wrong thing.

  • Follow removal instructions at bleepingcomputer.com. They usually know how to remove such infections. I think you will have to use malwarebytes thing and there is also tool called combofix, but I'm not sure. I had similar infection too and had to use combofix I think :) Anyway, read this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-security-tool. And also this article about Security Tool is a good read. Good luck!
