    "What is Rkill ?

    Rkill is created by Microsoft MVP Lawrence Abrams (also known as Grinler in several security forums) of BleepingComputer.com. Rkill is a malicious software process killer and anti-malware assistant because it will terminate the active processes of malware that are blocking your anti-malware, anti-virus, Task Manager, Process Explorer, Registry Editor, Browsers, and any other programs in loading. When it finishes unloading, or terminating, malicious processes associated with rogue or malicious program, you can then proceed to scan and clean the system using your anti-malware or anti-virus program".

    No warnings from Avast either on the page or scans of the downloaded files. I've never heard of this before so I'm gonna leave it alone until the more experienced come along and comment.

    Strange indeed, has to be a FP by Avira - All of my security Apps. say nothing wrong with the pages, including WOT, which gives the pages 5 stars of safety on each level.
    This link below gets the same levels of safety,
