You should try scanning Windows using below tools to get rid of that rogue program, AV Security Suite. If you fake scanner is displayed, it's there and it need to be removed.
The first two scanners require no installation to scan and remove any malware it can detect while the third need installation. Give any or all a try, until the problem is gone:

Hey, y'all! So I'm not the most computer savvy and I have read through the basic rundown of getting rid of the AV Security Suite virus, and quite frankly it scares me. Now, I just developed it a couple of hours ago, and I'm noticing that nothing is really happening. I had the System Tool or Security Tool, whatever it is, on my other computer a few months ago, and I took it into Best Buy's Geeksquad because it had shut down my computer for the most part.
With this, however, the only evidence that I have is the false scan that it popped up once. I quickly 'x'ed it out and searched for online solutions, where I noticed some other symptoms that my computer doesn't have. The Proxy boxes are all clear under the LAN Connections, and I'm not getting any fake notices about my programs. I could open Task Manager, McAfee, and Windows Defender with no problem. Of course, neither of them found anything, but I've learned that not finding a virus doesn't mean it's not there. I can also navigate the internet freely, without any redirects.
So, I'm a bit afraid to turn off my computer, because I fear that may "awaken the beast", so to speak, and leave me without any other option except for paying Best Buy to fix this for me. I am curious if just 'x'ing out that first fake scan and running Windows Defender and McAfee may have fixed the problem. Is that possible? If not, and the AV Security Suite is just lurking in my computer, are there any alternative ways to removing it than installing that rkill and malwarescan program? I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate on a Dell XPS M1530 laptop, if any of that matters. Thanks in advance for the help!
