    I have recently obtained a very malicious virus on my computer. It's called "Security Tool" it took over my system not allowing me to download anything, nor get to the internet. I guess my Spyware wasn't strong enough. Anyway, so I tried everything and couldn't get it off, no luck. So what I did was just reinstall windows without formatting it so that I wouldn't loose all my files.I just made a whole new operating system with Home edition instead of Professional.Then, 2 weeks later, the virus came back. But it was worse this time because it downloaded a twin virus that was just trying to get me to buy a "so called" security software and it also downloaded unknown video websites to my desktop. I really need to have this fixed, I tried everything. Does anyone know how I could fix this?
    Thanks for any help!
