Roguekiller

RogueKiller Site

32 and 64 bit versions. Executable file.

Writeup on RogueKiller at TechRepublic here.

This app is popular on many security sites. I've used it a couple of times, but I'm not familiar with all of its capabilities. It writes its scan logs to the desktop and that's not configurable, so I don't know if that disqualifies it. Either way, nice to know about.

It's easier to download Roguekiller from here to bypass all the donation requests and confusing layout for locating the download links on the developer's site: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details ... iller.html.
