Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

Hello All,
I have noticed that when the Windows update is
done, it downloads the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.
However I can't find it. Can someone tell me where it is.
Thanks

Hi, RalphG.

Although the Malicious Software Removal Tool is good at the time of download, it uses the same definitions as the other MS scanners. Thus, even one day after it has been downloaded, it is out of date.

If you are using MSE as your antivirus software, you would do just as well checking for updates and scanning with MSE. However, if you use another vendor's product, I suggest the Microsoft Safety Scanner.

Tutorial here: Microsoft Safety Scanner

Thank You for the replies. I use a few antimalware/virus apps.
I just like to have a few different apps. for safety.

Thanks again.
