Recently when I tried to run Rkill it triggered to say Malware infection. Kaspesky turns red & all the bells & whistles indicate an infection. Any Ideas?

It's a false positive; RKill is clean.

You may have to temporarily disable your AV in order to run RKill.

I've notified the developer of RKill so that he's aware of the issue.

Thanks for letting us know!

Thanks for letting us know. I contacted Kaspersky and they will be removing the FP in the next update.
