RogueKiller 10.0.2.0

Lightweight and portable application that scans processes, the registry, MBR, shortcuts, Hosts file and other areas for suspicious activity
RogueKiller is a lightweight and portable application that scans all your currently active processes and terminates suspicious ones, in order to free up some memory.

Since installation is not a requirement, you can drop the executable file somewhere on the hard disk and click it to run.

It is also possible to move RogueKiller to a memory card or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine with minimum effort.

What's more, the Windows Registry does not get new entries, and leftover files do not remain on the hard disk after removing the app.

The interface is based on a regular window with seemingly cluttered options, where a pre-scan mode automatically starts at initialization and kills any suspicious processes. The file list shows the status, type, process ID, name, and path for each item.

The program is also able to scan the registry, Hosts file, proxy, DNS, drivers, MBR, and shortcuts. You can disable RogueKiller from scanning the MBR, verifying fake items, and running the anti-rootkit service. It provides options for deleting selected items and repairing services, MBR, Hosts, proxy, DNS and shortcuts.

RogueKiller offers multilingual support, uses low CPU and RAM, and carries out a scan job rapidly. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, as the app did not hang or crash. Although it is not particularly intuitive or attractive, RogueKiller proves to be a pretty powerful tool for detecting and removing suspicious activity from the system.
