System Tool 2011 removal

Recommended Posts

Hi, I think I must have posted this in the wrong part of the forum so I will post it here:

My Toshiba laptop was infected yesterday with the System Tool 2011 virus yesterday and I was fortunate enough to have a cell phone with full internet handy to look up instructions to get rid of this problem. I restarted my laptop in safe mode with networking, downloaded Malwarebytes, and ran the program just fine without having to change the name or extension of the actual executable program. After running a full scan, Malwarebytes detected 27 bad files on the system, deleting all of them successfully. On restart,(normal mode) there was no sign of the virus to be found; the system tool virus icon in my start menu had become a dead shortcut, the random numbers folders that had placed themselves in my documents folder had their contents deleted, and everything is running good right now. Is there a chance that there is still a registry key somewhere in my system that Malwarebytes could have missed or am I pretty much in the clear of this virus? I'd appreciate any feedback, thank you.

My laptop is running Windows Vista 32 bit version
