My son's laptop is infected. He did a google search to try to see how to play the game Battlefront2 online using his PS2. A warning popped up that the computer had been affected by a bunch of viruses. The warning came from a program called securitytools. It is now firmly installed and blocks all attempts to do anything on the computer.
Can't access the internet. I tried to use a zip drive to install Malawarebytes, but it wont let me. The computer shut down to save itself 2x, but as soon as it reboots itself, securitytool is there waiting. Not sure what to do now....thank you for helping me.
