The message System Tool displays on your desktop background

When run, System Tool will hijack your desktop background, and replace it with a message that says "YOUR'RE [sic] IN DANGER! YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED WITH SPYWARE!" and automatically run a scan. System Tool will then proceed to attempt to scare the user into updating his/her version of System Tool by reportng fake threats that can only be terminated by updating, but whenever you try to do that, it will tell you to activate it.
