Hi gang, I'm having a problem with the rkill.exe download. When I try to execute it, an error box pops open that says "Some installation files are corrupt. Please download a fresh copy and retry the installation." This happens regardless of which of the variously renamed copies of the executable I try to download and run.

It then says "CRC failed in swreg.exe, Unexpected end of archive."

Any ideas?

Are you using an antivirus program? If so, which one?

Also try it in safe mode and see if it works then. Could be something interfering.

An update will be out in the next week or two that will eliminate these types of errors.

I've tried it on various systems: The affected system (ie, the one with the malware problem), which is Vista Home Premium 32-bit; then my "known good" machine, which is a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit machine; and then again on a Windows XP Pro machine. Same exact results, all 3 tries. I haven't tried to run it in safe mode, but I have a hard time envisioning a scenario where something's interfering with the unzip portion of the process on 3 VERY different platforms. Thanks for the quick reply!

I just tested it and its working fine.

Are these computers all on the same network? If so, something may be corrupting the download.

@ LegacyTech,

Grinler asked you if you were using an AntiVirus and if so, which one. Can you answer that question please? I've seen AV products delete files from within a zipped product.
