Hi. Thanks to everyone on bleeping computer. I've used it for help many times but can't seem to find the answer to what I think is a simple question. So sorry if this is basic, but I just can't get rkill to run. I'm having problems with windows recovery virus and I'm trying to run rkill from dos prompt in safe mode. I downloaded it onto a flash drive on a clean computer, now how do I start it on the infected computer?
Thanks

You simply double click the icon.

Remember that RKill is not a scanner.
What it does is to remove malware from memory so that other tools like Malwarebytes can run.
See removal instructions here
You will also need to download unhide.exe from the link

DO NOT run any temporary file cleaners such as CCleaner or clean out your temprary internet files.
In the beginning there was the command line.

there is no icon, all I have is the dos prompt. Is there a dos prompt command that I can use to get it to run. Like "run rkill.exe" or something like that. Thanks
