I have gone and clicked on a few downlaod options. The box comes up that it was installed, but when I go to run/%userprofile%\desktop it is not there. I have to uninstall Security Tool that showed up on my computer, and cannot get past this first phase.

Hi quigley00.

rkill does not need to be installed, just executed. Below are the four versions of rkill. Link #1
Link #2
Link #3
Link #4
  • Important! disable any real-time monitoring anti-malware software that you have installed so that it does not interfere with RKill running, as some anti-malware software detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this page if you are not sure how.
  • Download Link #1 and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click the RKill desktop icon. (If you are using Vista please right-click and choose "Run as Administrator".)
  • A black screen will briefly flash indicating a successful run.
  • If this does not occur please delete that application and download Link #2.
  • Repeat the process until one of the tool versions runs successfully. (If the tool does not run successfully from any of the links, tell me about it.)
  • This will temporarily shut-down the malware, hopefully long enough to allow the next tool to run successfully.
Once that is done, please continue at step 6 of the Security Tool removal guide.

You don't need to know where the HOSTS file is to run hostsperm. Just double click on it.

I am sorry I am so dumb when it comes to this stuff. Where do I go to do this? I need to find where to go to delete this

We now need to delete the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS file. Once it is deleted, download the following HOSTS file that corresponds to your version of Windows and save it in the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc folder.

I cannot find it in add/remove programs.

First, right-click the link in the guide that corresponds to your version of Windows and click save. This should pop up a box asking you to save the file to you computer. Choose a location you won't forget (the desktop is a good place) and save the file.

Now open up My Computer (called just Computer in Windows Vista) and double click on the icon labeled C:\. Then find the icon labeled Windows, double click on it. Repeat with Drivers and etc. You should now see an icon labeled HOSTS.

Now drag the HOSTS file you downloaded earlier into the window you just opened. Windows should ask you to confirm replacing the file, please do so.

That's it! Go to the next step in the guide.

Here's a quick video I made that demonstrates:
