A Tool That Works
I want to recommend and give kudos to Rkill which does what it proclaims. How many products can you make that statement about? It’s freeware, yes, a free tool created to stop the processes of malware.
It terminates known processes in the registry found in the Windows Registry Keys which stop computer systems from running normal security applications, such as Glarysoft, Avira, Malwarebytes, or AVG.
Today’s viruses like ransom ware also blocks your system from launching any executable file, such as IE, Word, Excel, or your games. I’ve used Rkill many times and each time it never failed me.
What It’s Not Programmed To Do
Rkill does NOT rid your computer of the virus, but instead it enables you to run your anti-virus software. All you do is launch it and it does all the work. Below is the initial DOS screen followed by the Finished notification once it’s completed the analysis and terminated the processes. At this point do not reboot your system continue the removal of malware by starting your anti-virus software to complete the clean.
In my experience cleaning computers encountering ransom ware and other malicious code that have become more intelligent or should I say the creator of the virus elevated his / her cleverness. Below is your generated report of Rkill’s findings.
Knowing today’s malware are more intelligent Rkill comes in 4 different file extensions > .EXE – .COM – SCR, and .PIF. When RKill first came on the scene it was only in the format of .EXE, but when malware blocked the execution of it they created alternative file extensions.
I recommend RKill because of its simplicity, reporting, and speed. Any one that can click can use this tool as a prefix to exterminate computer malware. It works on either 32 bit or 64 bit systems; in addition, cleans policies that stop you from using Window Utilities, execution objects, executable hijacks, disallowruns entries, and more.
