Hi everyone,

I used rkill on another computer and it worked great to help get rid of a virus. I copied rkill from the computer I'm on now. I used a flash drive and sometime after rkill was deleted, not by me. Now when I try to download rkill on either computer, it shows up on the flash drive for a second and disappears (deleted) I have used several flash drives and used malwarebytes to get rid of any viruses, but it still will not download. My other computer has the virus back, which does not let me open anything. Is my only choice to get a new flash drive and download from yet another computer? The virus must have trasfered via the flash drive.

Yeah, I've used rkill and all the other renamed downloads before. I'm just confused because I have no signs of a virus and have run several anti virus programs and yet I cannot get any of the downloads to stick. I can move programs from my hard drive to the flash drive. I cannot even save a download to my hard drive. Very curious!

Some anti-viruses will detect RKill as malware especially when renamed to iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe, etc because they have definitions in place that flag certain file names used outside their normal path. If that's the case, the anti-virus may be deleting it.
