    Default rkill issues

    So, I downloaded Rkill as I think it is a nice program to have. I go to install it, and Avast block it. I then go into avast and exclude rkill from being sandboxed. It still won't work, so I disable Avast completely. However, when I go to install it, I now get an error message, and it won't install. What could be doing this?

    rkill is a "standalone" program so doesn't install. It is used only to stop computer processes that exhibit a certain behaviour. This then allows the cleaning program such as SuperAntispyware to actually run.
    Avast will see rkill as a program that behaves like some Spyware but really doesn't matter as you only run rkill when you have an infection.
    Ever stop to think, and forgot to start again?

    Ok, thanks for that. I guess that was why it wouldn't install then - no installation required.
