I need Security Tool off my friends computer?

My friend got the virus “security tool” on his computer and im helping him get it off. He tried to go on the internet and download things like malware bytes anti-malware, spyware doctor, etc. but security tool wont let him download anything. He went into safe computer and networking on his computer and when he got to the internet it froze on him and every time after that it still freezes in that mode. Is there any FREE way around this issue?

    this is the only way i can think of
    go to a nother computer and download malwarebytes dont intstall! burn it to a cd or put it on a flash drive and then transfer it to the infected computer then put your friends computer in safe mode with networking then update malwarebytes and do a scan and that should remove it if you cant get on to the internet because of the rouge that is what a fake anti virus/anti spyware is called btw but if its blocking malwarebytes from updateing make sure you get the newest malwarebytes and just do the same step but because you cant update dont update it just scan the computer in safe mode and if that works i recommend install a anti virus i recommend in getting avira anti virus its free and offers the detection rate of all free anti viruses and beats some paid anti viruses. thanks hope that helped
