Often browse this forum to gain as much info as possible and to stay abreast of malware prevention. My question involves utilizing the program RogueKiller. Does this tool make changes to the Registry? Often see where BC is very adamant with regards these types of tools. Personally never used such programs but am inquisitive as altering Registry Entries can have bad results.

 

Thanks in advance.................

Yes, RogueKiller do make changes withing registry when removing malware...

It deletes malicious registry entries or restoring values that malware changed such as turning off security center notification...

@TwinHeadedEagle, so if I understand correctly the tool will find and isolate any malicious registry entries and reverting them to original values?
