RogueKiller is a free anti-malware software (written in C++) designed to detect and remove a wide range of known and unknown malware including generic malware and advanced threats like rootkits, rogues, worms. It also detects controversial programs (PUPs) as well as possible bad system modifications/corruptions (PUMs).
Based on powerful generic detections (heuristics), and on more classic anti-malware analysis (signature finding), It is able to find threats other anti-malware can’t find because of the very aggressive and deep scanner (with Anti-Rootkit module).
RogueKiller is available in three editions: Free, Personal, and Technician. The personal paid edition adds Support, Automatic Updates, Scan Customization and other advanced protection features over the free edition. The Technician adds CLI Version (RogueKillerCMD), and the option to create portable setting file.
