How can I get an icon for RKill to be placed on my task bar?  I downloaded it...but I don't know how to get the icon there.

Like most malware removal tools you should download a new one every time you need it though, to make sure you have the most up to date version.

How can I get an icon for RKill to be placed on my task bar

Hi -

I never have an icon in the Tray / Taskbar, but just a desktop icon, and then I delete it once finished.

 

As from above, the program will be Updated, but your best way is Uninstall and Reinstall as needed.

 

That is my preferred way of using these programs.

 

If you have other questions, there is ONE main topic to cover this specific program, so please post there.

All comments and questions on RKill should be posted here => RKill - What it does and What it Doesn't - A brief introduction to the program

RKill is not designed to be a comprehensive malware removal tool...it is primarily designed to terminate the most common malicious processes that prevent other security tools from being executed, complete a scan or used to disinfect the system so using RKill is not required in all situations.

Speaking of RKill, is this a valid direct-download link? http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.exe

 

The other links from the BC downloads page use randomized URLs for the download, making it impossible to make a script to download newer versions.

Yes it is a direct download link. I believe it was used before the Download hosting section was created.

Yes, this is valid, but if you use a script to download a new version please use the wget -t option. Failure to do so and downloading the file too often will lead to an ip address being banned. By using the -t option your script should only download if the file is newer than the one you currently have.
