Useful Tools for recovering from Spyware and Malware

rKill

RKill is a program that was developed at BleepingComputer.com that attempts to terminate known malware processes so that your normal security software can then run and clean your computer of infections. When RKill runs it will kill malware processes and then import a Registry file that removes incorrect file associations and fixes policies that stop us from using certain tools. When finished it will display a log file that shows the processes that were terminated while the program was running.

Although BleepingComputer.com claims that rKill “attempts” to terminate known malware, it actually performs quit well in doing so in numerous instances.  RKill comes in different forms (RKill.com, RKill.ex,e RKill.scr, eXplorer.exe, iExplore.exe, uSeRiNiT.exe, WiNlOgOn.exe Download Link.) to allow you to get a leg up on the Malwares defense of preventing certain programs from running.

Greater coverage with WiFi

Do you have a large house and every Wifi solution you try can never cover the whole area. 

D-Link has come out with a new line which allows you to create or expand your home network using your existing electrical wiring.

The D-Link PowerLine AV Network Adapter technology extends your network’s range by utilizing your home’s existing electrical wiring. This device is also ideal for homes or small offi ces where concrete walls, successive floors in multi-storied buildings, or other architectural impediments could inhibit a wireless signal. Connect multiple devices in the farthest corners of your home by attaching a switch or wireless access point to a D-Link PowerLine AV Network Adapter.

We have used this device on a few homes with large square footage, and it is very effective and affordable.
