System Tool 2011 is a rogue anti-spyware application and a part of a scam. The System Tool 2011 rogue was first reported in early November 2010, and is known to have originated in Russia. Its name may also be rendered in the following ways: SystemTool 2011, SystemTool2011, System Tool2011, SystemTool, and System Tool. An alternate name for the same malware is PC Tool 2011. System Tool 2011, as a scam, follows an increasingly common pattern, which is to infect a user's computer with a virus that will scare them into paying for bogus software.

The Basics

System Tool 2011 infects a computer as a virus. Once it has made its way into the system, it will set itself up to run a bogus system scan, and it will provide a list of a whole bunch of scary viruses on your computer. Of course, all of these infections are fake, since System Tool 2011 is just trying to scare you! In reality, System Tool 2011 is completely incapable of actually scanning for viruses or threats, and it cannot perform any useful functions.

The Strange Part

Then, after the bogus "scan," System Tool 2011 will constantly bombard you with pop-up warnings about threats to your computer. One of the defining features of System 2011, actually, is that these warnings are stunningly and profoundly poorly-written. Their content is just barely intelligible, and it seems to be written by someone with a poor grasp of the English language. System 2011's warning messages ramble on for whole paragraphs, warning that your computer is infected with spyware that will make all of your files and browsing history available to literally everyone you know, and (this is an actual quote) "break your life." Since no legitimate anti-spyware application would ever include such nonsense, this ought to be a dead giveaway that System Tool 2011 can't be trusted.

Demanding Ransom

Regardless of whether you buy into the sham anti-spyware of System Tool 2011, it will also take your computer hostage by preventing you from starting any other application, and will warn you that anything you try to open is infected with some kind of malware. System Tool 2011 will constantly create pop-up warning messages that tell you that you need to buy the licensed version, or buy a product key, in order to allow it to clean your system of threats. If you don't give in and buy the fake "product key" out of belief that it is legitimate software, System Tool 2011 apparently hopes to bully you into paying for it in order to regain control of your computer.

The key thing to remember is that you do not have to give in to the scam. Remember that System Tool 2011 can't be trusted and has nothing to offer.
