I have a PC infected with Internet Security 2010. I'm trying to download rkill so I can get the processes shutdwon. But I don't seem to be able to download rkill. Every link for it gives me a "Internet Explorer Connot Display the Webpage." message. Clearly I'm getting out to the Web okay (I'm here after all). I've tried it from three different PCs, 2 XP and one Win7.

Any thoughts? Is there a problem with the site?

Also, when I try to right click, and 'Save Target As...' I get a Windows error saying, "Internet Explorer cannot download... the connection with the server was reset"

If you cannot use the Internet or download any required programs to the infected machine, try downloading them from another computer (family member, friend, library, etc) with an Internet connection. Save to a flash (usb, pen, thumb, jump) drive or CD, transfer to the infected machine, then install and run the program(s). If you cannot copy files to your usb drive, make sure it is not "Write Protected".
