RKill is a reliable tool to assist with malware and virus removal on infected PCs. It is suggested by many university corporate IT departments as an effective tool, and the author of the program has been awarded Microsoft's MVP professional development award.
Unlike some other virus removal tools, RKill does not work independently. It is not designed to remove the malware but instead to temporarily disable any malicious programs running on the computer. This allows other programs to run without interference, which is key to the process, since as of 2014 many advanced malware programs have the capability to corrupt or disable the most common virus removal tools.
