if you clicked on it there will be registry entries. If Malwarebytes doesn't clean it out try these 2 free fully working trials.
1- rkill.exe
2- trojan remover
3- hitman pro
fix all they find

I would scan with the others I suggested also, sometimes one file is not the only one on there.

Hi…………… really, system tool 2011 is a critical problem which completely damages the performance of our PC. Actually, system tool 2011 is a fake application which creates fraudulent messages showing presence of virus in the system. Following these messages, users use different anti-virus softwares which are failed to solve this problem.

Beside this, system tool 2011 corrupts all the important files of system and even don’t allow you to open the task manager window, therefore, removal of this fake application manually is not possible. So, to remove system tool 2011 you can use system tool 2011 removal software which quickly detect virus and make your system free from this fake application.

But at least doing it manually is free, unlike the software harrypotter is suggesting which, in some respects, is just as bad as the original problem, in that you get a 'free scan' but then have to buy the software for it to do anything & you still have no guarantees.

Stick with what you've done, and if you want to use the free tools XPUser recommended

pcchick. If you read through the posts you'll see only one poster, harrypotter, was promoting his own product and he is pretty obviously a spammer. Malwarebytes is a free, well-trusted program that will get the system up & running again, after which using the other, also free, tools mentioned on here will remove the majority of the remains. Anything left after that can be safely ignored as they will have no effect.

Speaking as a tech myself I'm well aware that a tech can remove this sort of thing, at a price, but I would prefer users are educated to do a bit of self-help and these sorts of malware are relatively innocuous and fairly easy to remove, again, for free.

If the OP is still interested, there's a manual removal walkthrough available on Bleepingcomputer
