    WARNING Will Robinson


    this tool detects a bunch of Winantiransom stuff so use with caution. In fact it will screw up your winantiransom program so it's service won't start. lucky I installed it and ran it in quietzone.

    This is how i would do it in dos. this is assuming the exe was saved to desktop.
    windows 10 64 bit.
    right click on start menu, click on command prompt as admin. from what you can see below the default windows comes up c:\windows\system32.
    or create a batch file to do it.
