Can someone please help me with this? Someone on this forum told me to run rkill to try to help with google redirects. I have fixed the google redirect problem from another help source, but I did run Rkill, and now I can't figure out how to get Rkill off my computer, it keeps running at seemingly random times, very annoying. I would like to remove it, but I can't figure out how.

Delete it? As I read the instructions rkill is a standalone on demand .exe file--it shouldn't run unless you double-click the exe file.

it keeps running at seemingly random times

That seems very strange. Why not PM the person who told you to run it and ask them? Or PM someone on the Malware Response Team or a Moderator?

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I'll try that. I thought it was supposed to be like you say, I don't know what's going on.
