Check in safe mode. how?
shut the computer off//
cont hit f-8 key immediately you restart the computer. keep tapping f 8 till you get advance boot option.
make sure you connect the internet directly to the computer means remove the wireless connection if there is and hook it wired.
select safe mode with networking and login
check the internet and if it doesnot work then do system restore to prev date when the computer was working fine.
always make sure that the date selection should be sufficient if you are not sure.
selecting the date doesnot alter anything on the computer.
follow the wizard of system restore and the computer will restart automatically to normal mode.
if your security suite is not opening then you will have to uninstall it from prog and feature and get it installed properly..

Does ScanGuard really work? "This revolutionary new system from ScanGuard will detect and eliminate any Viruses, Adware and Malware which may be silently dormant on your computer "

if other security systems like norton , kaspershy, mcfee will not find dormant problems then nothing else will as all virus adware malware all use register points that can be detected by security systems
if a full scan is used with a quality security system , the any dormant problems will be detected
basically what you have is just good advertising to make you think that your security system is not good enough

How to remove virus

First of, your question is a tricky question.
There are many anti-virus programmes on the net. Free and pay. Things to keep in mind is virus come first than the anti-virus comes out. Virus programmers are always looking for weakness in a system and they write a virus for many purposes. Other annoying facts is even if the virus was killed or out of the programme, it is very hard to fix anything they have damaged. So, you have to keep in mind even though you successfully killed a virus you still need to fix damage it has cause. That is why IT people always recommend to back up your data, format your HDD and reinstall windows and the programmes you are using.
Said that, now let's get to the virus problem.
Free anti-viruses:
1. AVG
3. Avira
4. McFee

1. Norton
2. Microsoft - ForeFront, Security Essential (comes with Windows license version.)
3. Kespersky

The above anti-viruses are good in their own ways. As said before you need fixes, patches to fix the damage. They also have fixes once the virus has been identified. Check out their websites by google searching.

Good luck mate.

How to uninstall ''security tools'' virus from laptop?

Try a tool called combofix. This will give you a 90% chance of removal. If that doesn't work, try malwarebytes. It has a very high detection rate, and will remove it if combofix doesn't. Even if it appears to be gone, run malwarebytes and mcafee that the system came with just to be sure.

Safe mode access only

For safe mode press F8 on boot up, it will provide you with several options. Choose Safe Mode or Last Known Working Condition or something like that.

I think the boot.ini on your system is already corrupted you may need to do a reapair on your OS.

By the way what Windows version are you running XP or Vista?
