As you can see, this fake warning claims that you will lost all your data if you won't remove trojan viruses with Security Tool. Of course, that's not true. This is nothing more but a scam. Don't buy Security Tool. Otherwise you will simply lose your money. If you already bought it then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Enter any serial number with 12 or more characters to remove this ransomware from your screen. Then you should run a full system scan with legitimate anti-malware software to remove the infection.

Removal recommendation:

Download one of the following legitimate anti-malware applications and run a quick system scan. Don’t forget to update it first. All programs a free.
NOTE1: if you can't run any of the above programs you must rename the installer of selected program before saving it on your PC. For example: if you choose MalwareBytes then you have to rename mbam-setup.exe to iexplore.exe, explorer.exe or any random name like test123.exe before saving it.

NOTE2: if you still can't run the renamed file then you need to change file extension too not only the name.
1. Go to "My Computer".
2. Select "Tools" from menu and click "Folder Options".
3. Select "View" tab and uncheck the checkbox labeled "Hide file extensions for known file types". Click OK.
4. Rename mbam-setup.exe to either test123.com or test123.pif
5. Double-click to run renamed file.
