    "I sure as heck won't run it again!"

    January 4, 2013  |   By zupansic


    None that I can see, unless you like Trojans and Adware.


    Like I said, r-kill contains a Trojan and Adware.


    I ran the latest r-kill which was released today (1-4-'13), and then I immediately ran the latest Dr.WebCureIT scan, which also was released today. After doing so, the scan detected a Trojan and some Adware in the r-kill program.
    Need I say more!??

    Perhaps if you learned a little more about the company that came up with Rkill and how anti-malware works you would understand it instead of mouthing off about a wonderful program.
    Rkill is not even installed, it is an exe. file, if you had trojans or adware after you ran it, it wasn't from rkill but possibly from your download source. Many pieces of malware won't allow you to use your anti-virus or anti-malware, Rkill shuts down these processes so you can do just that. It is almost impossible to find anti-virus or anti-malware that won't give you a false positive at some point that's why you need to use more than one.

    RKill is an executable file. It does not install It contains no malware. None. You may have gotten some sort of malware from the site you downloaded from. Always download from the source for best security.
