Curious if any of the folks out there with technical expertise have ever used RogueKiller? I typically go to Malwarebytes AntiMalware; however, I see RogueKiller has pretty darn good reviews. The main point that jumps out at me is that RogueKiller is for advanced users (see video below)…
Roguekiller is a popular and an effective tool to remove some stubborn malware but be warned; you better know what you’re doing. While a lot of more well-known tools will only scan and delete for you, this tool will show you everything it finds that is a possible problem. You need to know what to remove and what not to remove, or you could delete something you want, or need. Your results may vary, but just use caution and do your homework before removing anything or ask someone who is computer savvy.

There are occasions where we need to safeguard a file or a folder that contains sensitive information. This is especially true if you are storing the files online. The program that I use on a regular basis to accomplish this is EncryptOnClick (by 2BrightSparks). EncryptOnClick meets four of my conditions when it comes to encryption software:
- It is not here today and gone tomorrow. I have been using this program going on 5 years (or more) and it continues to be improved and up-to-date with changes in the operating system;
- It is very easy to use. Many encryption programs can be difficult to understand and navigate. EncryptOnClick is not one of them;
- It can be made portable to carry around on my flashdrive (or stored online for quick download). This is important since I use EncryptOnClick as my main encryption program (at home and at work);
- It is a very secure method of encryption (256-bit AES encryption) that is password protected. The encryption file result is also compressed to make the file smaller.

I recently featured the AnVir Task Manager here on the blog and can’t say enough about its’ usefulness. If you are a tech or someone who assists other’s with their Windows based computers I highly recommend you download the portable version of this application. To explain everything that this program can do (and monitor) I have posted below a link to a tutorial video. This program has many, many features and will even serve as a level of protection for your computer to protect you from malware and viruses. Anvir Task Manager goes over and above any task managers that I know of.
