    KB890830 update for Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - Nov. 13

    Posted: 15 Nov 2018
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) 5.66 helps remove malicious software from computers running Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008.

    Microsoft generally releases MSRT monthly as part of Windows Update or as the standalone tool. Use this tool to find and remove specific prevalent threats and reverse the changes they have made (see covered threats). For comprehensive malware detection and removal, consider using Microsoft Safety Scanner.

    This article contains information about how the tool differs from an antivirus or antimalware product, how you can download and run the tool, what happens when the tool finds malware, and tool release information. It also includes information for the administrators and advanced users, including information about supported command-line switches.

    Note In compliance with the Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy, MSRT is no longer supported on Windows Vista and older platforms. For more information, go to Microsoft Support Lifecycle.

    [Why is title needed for a reply to a thread?]

    Thanks - the KB890830 update for Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - Nov. 13 - is the one I cannot install. I am really looking for alternative software that does the same job, so that I don't have this lousy problem every month.
