    Version: RKill build 4

    Pros

    Sounds promising... I've only downloaded and haven't installed, but seems like exactly what I need.

    Cons

    The file size listed (above) here on cnet.com is 355k but when downloaded i noticed the file size to be 984KB. I would greatly appreciate anyone who could tell me the size when they download this?

    Summary

    hmmmm....

    "LOADED WITH A TROJAN"

    May 2, 2011  |   By ncboy187

    Version: RKill build 4

    Pros

    I don't see anything I would rave about.

    Cons

    If AVG would not have picked it up, I would have had a Trojan virus on here.

    Summary

    Would not recommend unless you are a real computer nerd that can get around it.

    "It works...eventually."

    April 2, 2011  |   By jlh344

    Version: RKill build 4

    Pros

    Its simple. Save to desktop (transfer from a usb stick as you probably cant download while the malware is on your computer). Keep clicking the program until it does something.

    Cons

    When you click it initially it doesnt look like it is doing anything and this leaves you frustrated. But patience. Keep clicking and giving it time and you will get there. A DOS type box should pop up once it is working.

    Summary

    you have to click on it a few times once it is on your desktop as it initially doesnt seem to do anything. But eventually it will open a DOS type window and it does something that works :) Then install a anti spyware program like Malware bytes to get rid of malware permanently.

    "Used it twice in one week to save family computers"

    March 13, 2011  |   By shoepker

    Version: RKill build 4

    Pros

    A family member had no current anti-virus software on WinXP machines; kids using it with tons of Facebook and other activities. Can you guess? This worked well to stop the malware enough to let me run other fixes.

    Cons

    None really; worked as described.

    Summary

    Liked it, have it on my first-aid flash drive now.

    "Finally ... something that worked !!!"

    March 2, 2011  |   By rdios

    Version: RKill build 4

    Pros

    Only took 2+ months to find something that really works .. after start up it always came back .. the worm that is !!!
    It did just as said and the virus tried and tried so hard to fool me , but after all the scans with 5 different virus/maleware tools

    Cons

    You need to run in different files and places to work right , but I got it !

    Not really a con , just me not knowing everything about computers !

    Summary

    It does what is was made to do and well !!!

    I did one more scan .. just because !!!

    Nothing ; ))

    I will still scan daily and if any issues pop up ... I will post them

    Thanks Rkill ...... You Rock !!!

    "Yep, that's what it does"

    February 16, 2011  |   By flhu1

    Version: RKill build 4

    Pros

    It's small and it works.

    Cons

    No two player mode and enemy AI is predictable... but of course, it's not a first person shooter.

    Summary

    Had a virus that was blocking malware removal tools from working. Downloaded this. The second after I ran it, AVG popped up with the threat identified. I'm sold that this is definitely a handy tool to have in my computer maintenance tool-kit.
    I don't know if it requires regular updates to keep up with the latest threats, and it doesn't seem to have built-in online updating, but it worked on a virus that fooled a couple of up-to-date tools, so I can't complain.

    Updated on Feb 16, 2011

    I just now ran it on a computer I just kind of suspected of having a virus, and the same thing happened. AVG popped up with the threat identified. THIS PROGRAM IS A MUST-HAVE!
