there's very little info about the beta release on that microsoft page.

Quote:
Microsoft has just released a beta of a system recovery software. Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper has been designed to aid users in starting an infected PC and performing offline malware scans to remove viruses, trojans, rootkits and other forms of malware effectively. It is also used if malware is hindering the user to install or start an antivirus software on the infected system, or if the applications used to detect malware are not able to find the malware on the PC.

Hello Bonni,

Did you use the same 32-bit or 64-bit of Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to create the bootable ISO, CD/DVD, USB on your computer for the 32-bit or 64-bit computer's OS that you running the scanner on? You would use the 32/64 bit Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper for the 32/64 bit computer that you will be scanning at boot with.

I downloaded and installed the x64 on a USB drive and scanned. Worked out fine.

Although even though it says it just needs 250MB worth of space on a USB drive (which kind of implies it doesn't need to format it), it still needed to format the USB drive even though the drive was already bootable. So that was a little misleading.

And I specified what Drive to scan when I booted into the program when it asked, but it still scanned all my drives.

Guess one needs to still go into the Tools/Options of it and exclude what drives you don't want scanned.

Looks and acts just like Windows Defender. Even says "Windows Defender" when it boots up.

Sounds like Microsoft is getting even deeper to stop the bad things from happening. If it still happens, a free tool to help you out. Yes it's in Beta, but doesn't most things start that way? I would like to thank all those who use Beta and all the testing so the rest of us get a great program.
