"See my screen name?, I ain't joking."
Infected by malware?, DO NOT PANIC!!!!
Download RKILL on to your desktop and run from there.
RKILL has been written by an AVP of microsoft which means he is very good at what he does, it also means if he was to release ANY kind of malware and it is attributed to him that is a whole careers worth of respect from his peers out the window.
His name at Bleeping Computer is Grinler, all you TRON afficianados will understand.
GRINLER FIGHTS FOR THE USERS, (me and you).
I for one appreciate his efforts.
It being so good the bad guys making comments that this is malware, you see while their malware is running it can defend itself from all sorts of probes and deletion efforts.
RKILL kills all known Trojans/parasites dead and then erases them.
How could it have any cons?.
In making and releasing this, Laurence abrams has put the user in a position from which they can defend themselves.
This Program is extremely good at what it does and must be making a dent in the number and persistence of infections.
This is no doubt one of the reasons it is being slandered.
Just remember to download it on your desktop and run it from there, it really does make that much of a difference.
Grinler fights for the user.
