When a Bill Gates-like software genius dies under suspicious circumstances, Mulder and Scully are called in to investigate.

The two agents race to track down the deadly electronic virus before it can take over the Internet and destroy those responsible for its creation. Written by William Gibson and Tom Maddox, "Kill Switch" was originally broadcast February 15, 1998.
