New v0.96 Released! -- Sept 19, 2015
First version with a Windows installer. Installing BGPKiller is now very easy, even for the novice user. Please share it with your non-techie friend!
Note that there is no "portable" version anymore. Please let me know if you feel you'd need a more portable release. Meanwhile, previous BGPKiller versions (which were portable) are still available for download if you need to do everything by hand.
New v0.93 Released! -- Sept 7, 2015
Previous version (v0.92) was causing a false positive with Panda antivirus Heuristic analysis. These heuristics can be a pain for small developers! I had to replace some Win32 API calls with other equivalent calls to make this false positive disappear. So this version is basically identical as the previous one (feature-wise), except for the Panda false positive that's now resolved. Enjoy.
New v0.92 Released!
New command-line options now available for advanced users, such as turning off logging or hiding the icon in the System Tray.

Note that it should work with any version from Windows XP up to Windows 10 (32 & 64-bit). If you try it with any other Windows versions (95, 2000, etc.) please provide feed-back and I'll add them to this list. I'm also interested to hear about any other problem you encounter with the application -- don't hesitate to contact me for feed-back.
BGPKiller comes with a standard Windows installer. So nothing special here, you just have to run the installer and accept default options.
By default, it will add an entry to your Windows Startup folder, which means the application will automatically start when you log into Windows.
And That's of course the best way to use BGPKiller, i.e. always running and killing Avira ads!
