Resetting .EXE, .COM, & .BAT associations in the Windows Registry. Can somebody explain to me what that means. RKILL found no issues but it says Resetting .EXE, .COM, & .BAT associations in the Windows Registry.

RKill...terminates suspicious processes only and resets various registry configuration settings that prevent anti-malware and anti-virus tools from running.

RKill - What it does....Post #921

Some of these settings include .EXE, .COM, & .BAT associations in the Windows Registry.

You might want to read the first page which explains a lot about what RKill does. If you have further questions or issues with RKill, it is best to post in that topic so Grinler is aware.
