System Tool is a fake AV.  That is the infection you need to remove.  This will help and this is a good forum for assistance if you require it.

Glad to see that you are all cleaned up.  Be careful what you click on.  You may see a shield come up and begin a scan but just hit the back button.  It's a fake to make you click on it anywhere.
