Has Anyone heard of something called Security Tool, it is popping up all over the place and I think it is a virus like program.

my wife was playing something on PCH games or something like that and then it popped up and even created a desktop icon etc

Yes it is a virus

usually a scan with NOD32 and Malwarebytes can clean it. Might have to boot into safe mode to scan with malwarebytes and also turn off system restore.

Jeff, would NOD32 have kept it from getting in, in the first place because Avast sure didn't block it

More than likely it would have kept it from happening.
