Use Rkill to Stop Malware Processes

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Third party security programs like this always make me nervous (yeah, I know, I’m a bit paranoid,) but this one sounds pretty useful …

Rkill stops malware processes from running. It is useful because active malware processes running on your PC may not be detected by antivirus software. You can always go to the Task Manager in Windows to view active processes. If you cannot identify them, or they are blocked from the Task Manager list, you will find that the easy-to-use Rkill will stop the processes and identify them. Then you can run your antivirus program to remove the malware.
