RogueKiller - Tutorial

What is RogueKiller?

RogueKiller is a tool (developped by Tigzy) that can kill any active rogue process. Some infections will prevent the execution of your Antivirus or Anti-Malware softwares, RogueKiller can be used as a preliminary means of disinfection. From there you will be able to implement other solutions to clean your system.

Roguekiller: installation and first use

  • Download RogueKiller on your desktop.
  • Quit all running programs
  • Wait until the pre-scan is completed.
  • Accept the EULA and click Scan.
  • A report will be generated after the scan (you can publish it on the appropriate forum).
  • Click Remove.
  • NB: RogueKiller can also replace your current host file with a clean copy: Hosts tab > Fix Host

Important Notes

  • If RogueKiller does not start, rename it to winlogon (winlogon.exe).
  • The Delete button is only available after the scan. Don't forget to uncheck false positives detected during the scan.
  • At the end of the scan a report will be created (RKreport.txt), publish it on the appropriate forums to learn more about the nature of the infection.
  • If the program doesn't launch, do not hesitate to try several times.
