RKill Description

RKill is a program that attempts to terminate known malware processes so that your normal security software can then run and clean your computer of infections. When RKill runs it will kill malware processes and then removes incorrect executable associations and fixes policies that stop us from using certain tools. When finished it will display a log file that shows the processes that were terminated while the program was running.

As RKill only terminates a program's running process, and does not delete any files, after running it you should not reboot your computer as any malware processes that are configured to start automatically will just be started again. Instead, after running RKill you should immediately scan your computer using some sort of anti-malware or anti-virus program so that the infections can be properly removed.

  • RKill download guide:

    To use Rkill, download one of the Rkill applications from the Internet. There are a few different versions available because certain malware processes will actually impair the Rkill application. One or more of the different applications offered should work on any given PC. It is advantageous to download the various Rkill applications to either an external hard drive or a USB flash drive. This way, malware will not be able to recognize the Rkill applications and override them.

    Once you have downloaded the Rkill program file, double-click the file to run the application. The next step is to be patient. It can take Rkill several minutes to an hour, and sometimes longer, to identify and stop active malware processes running on your PC. When Rkill finishes running, it will display a list of the programs that have been stopped. There is no need to save this file, in fact do not save this file and close the window. Next, run antivirus software applications after updating antivirus definitions. You can also use the Malwarebytes program, available as a free download from the Internet. Malwarebytes, like Rkill, is not a replacement for effective antivirus software. By running antivirus software after Rkill has finished its job, the malicious software that your PC had been unable to remove before will be removed.

    Rkill did find one thing that i would have never thought as being malicious. when it removed that service, my system seemed to be a little speedier afterwards.

    RKill only terminates running malware process, it does not delete any files or remove infections.
    All other malware scanners failed because the parasite would not even let me run them. RKill does not remove the infection but it enables you to kill the darn thing so that you can run another malware scanner and let it do its job!

    The malware world is changing. It’s getting smarter. Sometimes malwares get so malicious that even the anti-malware program cannot run. In fact, some infections will detect that you have launched an anti-malware tool and close it down as soon as you open it, which makes your job much harder. This is the exact situation Rkill is designed for.

    I have used this on two occasions when my kids somehow got a fake antivirus parasite on their laptops. All other malware scanners failed because the parasite would not even let me run them. RKill does not remove the infection but it enables you to kill the darn thing so that you can run another malware scanner and let it do its job!
