Well i wrote a program that will block the annoying adware Relevant Knowledge

This adware will run on startup and always take up 15% + of cpu output.

None of the removal software works, and its even more difficult since Relevant Knowledge blocks you from viewing Relevant Knowledge removal sites

Well to use the block simply download the program

then copy and paste this harmless program into the D:\WINDOWS\system32

NOTE: if your Relevant Knowledge virus is not named rlvknlg.exe then rename my program to be whatever your Relevant Knowledge virus is called.

Also note that if copy/paste gives you an error, rename the existing rlvknlg.exe to something else and then paste in my rlvknlg.exe.

When you restart your computer, you will get a simple message saying that I blocked your Relevant Knowledge.

If the message comes up twice it's because Relevant Knowledge is trying to run itself again.

Simply removing rlvknlg.exe from the Registry and startup will NOT take it off the computer, only using this program to make it think it is still running will work.

Feel free to close the messages that appear on start up.

Hope you guys like it

I have seen people complaining about it but honestly speaking it's not a virus. The software is used to measure online activity. I also thought it to be a virus initially but then found their website I did not have any problem in uninstalling it.
