RogueKiller detects, blocks and repairs security vulnerabilities related to social engineering frauds, including Trojans that are otherwise impossible to uninstall. Written in C++, this simple tool was developed to provide basic protection against all kinds of malicious processes.
It is able to unload running shell processes, remove dangerous registry entries, and block hijacking actions in a fast, reliable way that leaves no traces whatsoever. This tool is not enough to remove the infected files.
In order to do that, users will need additional anti-malware software.
On the other hand, rootkits, hidden processes and SSDT hooks are easy manageable, even if false positives have been reported and acknowledged by its developers.
