Hiya! I am trying to download Rkill onto my mom's laptop but for some reason it keeps failing. I successfully downloaded malbyware so I'm not sure why I can't download Rkill. I have tried every link and it comes up as either failed or a pop up comes up saying that it couldn't be downloaded because an unknown error occurred, try saving to a different location. I really need Rkills help because every time my cousin logs into her facebook page, a rogue comes up and we can't get it off, had to call dell and it cost us a lot of money to get it fixed. Her anti-virus system is McAfee and the rogue managed to over power her firewall. I have Rkill on my own PC and I love it so I want to get it for her as well. Is there anything that can be done?

Can you transfer it between the two computer, and rkill isnt really anything special its a tool used to kill certain memory resident programs so that anti-malware programs can run.

Having exactly the same problem here. I've tried downloading on three different computers with three different operating systems. Nothing works.
