    "Excellent!"

    June 20, 2014   |   By PitoDaddy

    Version: RogueKiller 9.0.3

    Pros

    It cleaned my computer immediately.

    Cons

    There are no cons of which I'm aware.

    Summary

    Rogue Killer removed a pesky virus/rootkit that was causing advertisements and music to start playing through my speakers automatically without even having a browser open. It would start with a clicking sound coming from my speakers (the sound that you might hear when you open a file on your computer with a mouse). The clicking sound was then followed by either a Geico insurance ad, or Spanish music playing from a radio station, I believe. It would continue on and off continuously until I logged off of my computer. I tried to remove it in safe mode with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit Beta, Avast Antivirus, SUPERAntiSpyware, Microsoft Security Essentials, and CCleaner, but none of these programs even detected the infection. RogueKiller, however, got rid of it right away. It is the real deal. It worked for me when others failed.

    "Ignore the fake review, works great"

    January 03, 2014   |   By JarkoLovic

    Version: RogueKiller 8.6.3

    Pros

    Quick and light, nothing to install.

    Cons

    Not "real time" protection, but it's not supposed to be.

    Summary

    First thing to run when have an infected computer, it almost always cleans/squashes/stops malicious code enough for me to get the system running again and undo the damage.

    Had to laugh at the bad attempts by "Darren Dheilly" to knock this product. He either clicked in the wrong spot on the web page and downloaded something else or is completely confused. There are no other products installed, it runs as an .exe. Then he tried to reply (and attack another reviewer) as a different person, but didn't bother to change his login name.

    "Does what it says. There is no installation needed."

    November 11, 2013   |   By Area_Fifty_One

    Version: RogueKiller 8.6.3

    Pros

    Darren Dheilly is dead wrong, is a liar and must be working for another software product. Check reviews on other software sites. I have used this in an enterprise environment and it found Zero Access malware - something that Malware Bytes, MS Security Essentials and Kaspersky didn't uncover. There is NO installation needed, you run an executable file when you need it.

    Cons

    Does not run to catch malware before it installs on your computer. It only runs "manually".

    Summary

    Glad I found this software and was able to remove Zero Access malware from our accounting department computer.

    "Beware !!! It need a Minus 1 star..."

    September 03, 2013   |   By Darren Dheilly

    Version: RogueKiller 8.6.3

    Pros

    It was a good one once. but now, it does not work all all. It is terrible... Slows system well,.. as it loaded it's nifty Malware too... Every update is worse.

    Cons

    I used to work nice, removed crap and malware, The updated version did not do anything. The last version (Now) is even worse. It needs all these extra programs (Express_installer, Vune, Optimum Installer, a tool bar and install this and that) and it will not download the "Rogue Killer" app. It just wants you to install all this other Crap. My system stopped saying : The application was reported as unsafe. So I had to clean all the crap it gave me... A regedit showed all sorts of Junk it installed in my Registry. A system restore put me back to an OK state...

    Summary

    Make sure you have a valid restore point if you try to get this package, or better yet - stay away from it...

    June 24, 2013   |   By sheba94601

    Version: RogueKiller 8.6.1

    Pros

    Very easy to use an excellent tool to keep at all times w/ our main anti-virus suite!

    Cons

    Nope. Can't think of any

    Summary

    My Windows XP got hit w/ so many God knows what and Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 was suppose to be protecting it! Well I found someone w/ my same problems on a tech site 'BleepingComputer' and they mentioned Roguekiller caught a few things Malwarebytes missed. After using all the usual tools and tips then being told my pc seemed clean now ..something still wasnt quite right. I tried Roguekiller and low and behold! It caught the last slippery lil trojan and brought my old rig back lol. Now I have a spanking new pc and I NEVER go w/o this as a spare ..Tigzy is da man!

    "Great Tool & Excellent Support"

    December 28, 2012   |   By si

    Version: RogueKiller 8.4.1

    Pros

    I clean a LOT of computers after they've become infected and I have an arsenal of tools I depend on. This tool is awesome and I am adding it to the top of my list! It provides so much information and does so many things - and so quickly. Viruses have become so difficult to clean and get your system back to normal, and this program is really super. Used with MBAM, you can get your system back without a complete OS reinstall. And the developer's support (when required) is rock solid. Along with a very detailed user web page, email replies are fast, helpful and concise. (contact email is contained within the program.)

    Cons

    I would like to see the videos on the support page available in English as well, but you can still get the gist of the presentation, even in French.

    Summary

    Definitely recommended. Kudos to the developer.
