provides a "post-mortem" diagnostic to detect a range of high-profile

This tool is designed to assist in answering a common question asked by
many customers whose systems have been infected by a threat: "Is my
system still infected?"


Rkill is a small, freeware and portable tool designed to terminate active malware processes allowing you to use other removal tools. Rkill is made by a Microsoft MVP “Lawrence Abrams” and is available in 4 different extensions. An .EXE, .COM, .SCR and a .PIF file.
The reason why Rkill comes in 4 different versions is because some malware will block .EXE files in an attempt to prevent you from running other malware removal tools, so this gets around that problem.
This is not a malware removal tool, but a malware process killing tool.
