Hey, posting for a friend here

he has antivirus soft, and i pointed him towards the removal guide. He installed rootkill, but gets this error when tryint to start it

"windows can not open this file: file: pev.rkexe to open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select form a list of programs that are intalled on your computer"

he has tried the mirrors and all gave him this error. Any help?
