the trick with rkill is if you do get pop ups from the malware alerting you to it (malware will try to close rkill), leave the warning window from the malware open, and then run rkill again with the pop up up. If you close the malware window warning rkill will not work.

These warnings are just fake alerts by the malware that has hijacked your computer trying to protect itself. Two methods that you can try to get past this and allow RKill to run are:
* When you receive the warning message, leave the message on the screen and try running RKill again.
* If that does not work, just keep launching RKill until it catches and stays up long enough to kill the malware
Yes, both methods are not elegant, but they will work if you keep trying. Unfortunately, there is not much better I can do at this point for some malware that are very tenacious at killing all processes that run.
On a final note, when you download and run RKill, certain anti-virus programs may state that the program is a security risk. This is because some of the tools used by RKill can be used for good or bad, though the programs themselves are perfectly harmless, and most anti-virus programs just lump them into the bad category. I assure you we are using them only for good purposes :thumbsup:
