What removes and kills mold from walls?

What won't peel the paint or spread the mold? Please Help! (It's not fuzzy mold, but it's still there)

Update:

please tell me measurements if it's diluting something.

Update 2:

Would a hydrogen peroxide and water mix remove it?

    Warm water and bleach will work. I mix equal parts in a spray bottle and spray on. Leave for about 10 minutes then wipe off. To stop it coming back, spray the wall again with a fine mist of the bleach water mix and leave to dry. Leaving a window open slightly will help keep the mold at bay too. Hope this helps.

    Bleach and water 50/50

    Beware though, the whole wall can be eaten up with mold, so it may be a worse problem than you can see and you may need to replace the drywall to get rid of the problem all together... also if it does come off, you may want to try to prime it with Kilz primer before you paint, it has a mold inhibitor in it.

    Simple mixture of soap and water. The catch here is to use a not-so-abrasive scrubbing pad and scrub lightly and repeatedly until the molds are gone. Remember that molds are microscopic organisms that thrive in moist surfaces so in order to avoid molds, make sure that the wall is dry through proper room ventilation.

    Bleach water is the most effective mold cleaner. I do not know the best ratio to use, but there are directions on the bottle for different usages.

    Clorox cleanup works really good on mold and mildew. Spray and allow to soak before using a rag or a scotch scrub to wipe away.

    Hydrogen peroxide and water may remove it, yet another thing to use is vinegar-for regular cleaning, I use windex with vinegar. Also, please try to open the window in the room where the mold is, to help fresh air circulate for about 15 min. per day, to help cut down on mold. Also, please keep the heat on in the room (on low) to help keep it warm in the room after the window has been opened, then closed. Take care.

    There is a paint sold in Lowe's or probably any hardware store, that helps control mold, i don't remember the name,. After you paint, maintain it by applying the half and half bleach and water combo.

    sounds like if it is on windows moisture is coming in from somewhere, bleach will kill it you if the problem is not fixed though it will come back but bleach will clean it up and killl for awhile be aware that it can cause headaches and breathing problems if you don't do something about it
