RogueKiller hangs on Checking process - dllhost.exe

I am working on a computer that has been infected, this time with PUPs.  I was able to do a System Restore for before Re-markit and others downloaded.  I've run Rkill, AdwCleaner, JRT, MBAM, SAS and Hitman Pro, no big issues.  I am attempting to run RogueKiller but it hangs on Checking processes - dllhost.exe

I have run RogueKiller on this computer before with no issue.  Any ideas?
Thanks,
Mags

Try running it in safemode, or try a different download of the application. I use rogue killer often as part of the malware removal tool in the IT department at the university.  I have issues when the app froze up taking longer to scan than normal. I either tried rebooting the system or running it in safemode, or redownloading the app and trying to scan again.

try running sfc, or a repair; your OS looks corrupted :

Ran sfc /scannow with no issues, ran RogueKiller in Safemode then in Normal mode. It found these issues -

¤¤¤ Registry Entries : 2 ¤¤¤
[HJ POL][PUM] HKCU\[...]\System : DisableTaskMgr (0) -> FOUND
[HJ POL][PUM] HKCU\[...]\System : DisableRegistryTools (0) -> FOUND

Fixed and made sure host and proxy were good.

Her computer is running well!  Thanks guys!

Nobus maybe I am not expressing myself correctly and/or I may not be running RogueKiller correctly.

I tried running RogueKiller on her computer and it would not complete the initial scan.  I ran sfc /scannow which showed no errors.  I ran it 3 times.

I then started her computer in safe-mode, ran RogueKiller and it found then deleted two registry issues.

¤¤¤ Registry Entries : 2 ¤¤¤
[HJ POL][PUM] HKCU\[...]\System : DisableTaskMgr (0) -> DELETED
[HJ POL][PUM] HKCU\[...]\System : DisableRegistryTools (0) -> DELETED

I then restarted her computer in normal mode and re-ran RogueKiller and it found no issues and the host was set correctly.

Was this done correctly?
