Default security tool virus

Hy guys, I have been using my PC without any major viruses for the past 4 years but now I have this "Security Tool" virus that is really pissing me off. I have purchased Malwarebytes, did a full scan, deleted the virus, rebooted my PC and guess what? The virus is back on. I should sue Malwarebytes for false advertising. Anyhow, now I can't launch anything, except internet. I used "Rkill" to get end Security Tool but I get error saying "rkil.com is infected with virus...". I have Vista-64 and any help would be IMMENSELY appreciated. Thank you.

Backup your important data, format and reinstall.

An install that old probably has more undetected security threats.
