Let me thank Grinler for the most excellent RKILL.EXE utility. My daughter's boyfriend was infected with Antivirus Soft, and nothing I did was successful until I downloaded RKILL. Since the malware would not let me run an executable, I renamed the file iexplore.exe (since that program has to be allowed to run so that the malware terrorists can extort the user to buy the fix.) My situation was complicated by my being three hours away from the infected computer and I was, therefore, unable to reboot his computer in Safe Mode. So, thanks, Grinler!

It's a fantastic program. I would pay for it it's just that good! It allowed me to remove Koobface which had infected a computer at work. Great program!!!

I have used rkill for years,now and I am adding my kudos to those listed. I guess I will note here that my Trend Micro identified rkill as a possible Trojan. I downloaded and scanned the .com and .exe versions on my Comodo system and did not get any warning. I will assume that the Heuristic feature of the Trend Micro is what touched off the warning, as it sometimes identifies other tools I use as possible threats.

Go Grinler and CO.!
