How Did I get infected with System Tool 2011?

A drive by download is when a malicious website or website that has been hacked, injects code onto that web page and when a user visits the page he/she is prompted to run or install a program.

If your antivirus software did not block this install you should consider making a switch. It's obvious whatever you have is not protecting you.
