RogueKiller is a small app that serves to eliminate rogue processes and increase your security, whether they be false antivirus apps or useless optimizers. It's portable and compatible with32 and 64-bit versions of Windows.
When you first run RogueKiller, it will search for services and processes that may be hidden on your computer. It scans quickly and will rapidly quarantine anything suspicious such as malware.
Once the scan has been completed, RogueKiller will delete the files. It's best to look at the text reports generated by the app though, to make sure everything picked up by RogueKiller is in fact, harmful. In our tests, RogueKiller was very aggressive, taking innocuous programs for malicious ones. Overall, you should be very comfortable with system processes and the inner workings of Windows to safely use the program.
The other features of the program allow RogueKiller to undo the damage caused by fake antivirus tools, such as repairing host files, proxies, DNS, and shortcuts. You'll even be able to read the Roguekiller developer's opinions on why you most likely got infected.
RogueKiller is a straightforward, minimalist app that detects rogueware of all kinds. It's not for beginners though. On Softonic we offer the free version, but on the developer's website, you will find a paid/premium one which you can buy to get a license key. If you are looking for alternatives we recommend you to try SpyBot Search & Destroy or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
