Both Rkill (malware/virus process terminator) and Hitman Pro can be downloaded here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/hitmanpro/
HitmanPro is an anti-virus program that describes itself as a second opinion scanner that should be used in conjunction with another anti-virus program that you may already have installed. If malware slips past your anti-virus software, HitmanPro will then step in to detect it. Though SurfRite bills themselves as a second opinion scanner that does not mean that you cannot use the program as your primary anti-virus product. This is because its scanning technology not only incorporates its own virus definitions but also has the ability to scan files on your computer with the definitions of 5 other anti-virus vendors.
A strong feature of HitmanPro is its Scan Cloud feature. This feature comes into play when HitmanPro detects a suspicious file that they are unsure of. When a suspicious file is detected, HitmanPro will upload the file to their cloud where it will then be scanned by 5 other anti-virus vendors. Using the scan results from these vendors, HitmanPro will then decide when or not that file should be classified as malware and removed. This approach is very effective as it allows a more thorough approach to detecting new malware.
HitmanPro also includes the ability to create a bootable USB drive that contains HitmanPro.Kickstart. Kickstart is a full featured version of HitmanPro that can be run directly from the bootable USB drive. This makes it very useful for removing stubborn infections, such as Ransomware, that corrupt Windows Safe Mode or disable your ability to access the Windows Desktop.
RKill is a program that was developed at BleepingComputer.com that attempts to terminate known malware processes so that your normal security software can then run and clean your computer of infections. When RKill runs it will kill malware processes and then removes incorrect executable associations and fixes policies that stop us from using certain tools. When finished it will display a log file that shows the processes that were terminated while the program was running.
As RKill only terminates a program's running process, and does not delete any files, after running it you should not reboot your computer as any malware processes that are configured to start automatically will just be started again. Instead, after running RKill you should immediately scan your computer using some sort of anti-malware or anti-virus program so that the infections can be properly removed.
Below are a list of RKill download links using different filenames. We offer RKill under different filenames because some malware will not allow processes to run unless they have a certain filename. Therefore when attempting to run RKill, if a malware terminates it please try a different filename offered below.
I disinfect computers as part of my job and these are my "go-to" programs,...
