I was running Roguekiller and was told that I need to get a newer version.

However, both Firefox and Chome deem the connection to Adlice (www.adlice.com/softwares/roguekiller/) untrusted or unsafe (not private). I thought Roguekiller is a legit program developed by legit people. What's going on? Any suggestion?

Roguekiller is a legit program and you can download it from here.

Most of the well known specialized tools we use as malware fighters are written by experts/Security Colleagues at various security forums like Bleeping Computer, TechSupport, GeeksToGo, SypwareInfo and other similar sites so they can be trusted...this includes any program hosted by BC for download. Unfortunately, many of these tools are repeatedly falsely detected by various anti-virus programs from time to time. That sometimes results in an inaccurate site rating/warning of potentially dangerous software.

Rest assured our Security Colleagues are trustworthy and all the programs hosted for downloading here at BleepingComputer are malware-free and perfectly safe to use.

Thanks for the clarification. One follow-up issue, as I am not sure if I should be concerned about the following situation -

 

(a) now I seem to be able to access www.adlice.com through either Firefox or Chrome with no problems. (so still no idea why the access was NOT accepted by either browser a while ago)

(B) but if I re-ran the older version of RogueKiller and got a prompt to download the latest version, the link to adlice is still rejected by Firefox (default browser).

 

Any advice? Thank you.

http://www.adlice.com/softwares/ << This opens very quickly with my F/fox and Internet Explorer.
 

Your Google Chrome may be the problem ?? I find it is usually the most vulnerable to problems (just look in our Malware areas).

If you need individual assistance with a possible malware infection, you can start a new topic in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum.

was really just hoping there might be some easier answer to my observation and am not expecting (who knows) that I am infected.

Will of course continue to monitor my laptop and if there should be any issue, I will post a new question in the right group. Thank you for the help.

RogueKiller scans running processes and kills those which are malicious in a manner similar to Rkill. RogueKiller will clean the running processes before being killed, and on demand will clean the registry in order to make a faster and safer disinfection when using other security removal tools.

Since you were trying to download it...I figured you were dealing with malware issues.

In any event...you're welcome.

Hello,
 

Your Google Chrome may be the problem ?? I find it is usually the most vulnerable to problems (just look in our Malware areas).

 
Correlation does not equate to causation, so I do not believe claiming Chrome to be the more vulnerable of the three browsers accurate at all. 
 
Both Chrome and Internet Explorer have always been proactive in isolating themselves from the rest the OS, with Firefox failing to do the same. One exploit in Firefox is enough to compromise the entire system, whereas exploits in Chrome or IE usually require a more complex combination in order to break out of the isolation created by the browser.

However, in this topic seraphin is indicating that both Firefox and Chrome deem the connection to adlice.com/softwares/roguekiller as an untrusted or unsafe site which is a different issue than the vulnerable browser debate...a topic for a separate discussion.
