RogueKiller Review

Removes a number of spyware/malware-created elements from the PC
A review of RogueKiller by Tina de Pierre

RogueKiller is a tiny application that comes in handy when you've downloaded some crap from the web. To be precise, rogue processes which profess to be registry cleaners, antivirus applications or even malware cleaners.

On first launch of RogueKiller, it will scan your system for known threats which may be hidden on your system and alerts you of anything suspicious.

When RogueKiller has finished scanning your system for rogue software, it will delete the files. Once completed, a text log file will be produced which displays what it found and the actions it took (if any).

Some other useful actions that RogueKiller can sometimes help out with is reversing any damages or changes a fake antivirus or registry cleaner has caused.

Overall, RogueKiller is a rather easy-to-use and very useful if you have installed anything rogue on your system. Highly recommended if you've been plagued by download wrappers on many software directories.
