Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Malware programs have become some of the biggest daily threats to online security and comfort. Internet users have had to cope with all kinds of potentially dangerous software, which does not allow users of the internet the security they need to visit or use any application of their choice. However, that can be a thing of the past with a program like Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool.

What’s the deal about this tool?

Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool checks your computer for infection by specific, prevalent malicious software (including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom) and helps to remove the infection if it is found.

Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool will help to get rid of specific, prevalent malicious software from infected systems. Because computers can appear to function normally when infected, Microsoft advises you to run this tool even if your computer seems to be fine. In addition to using this tool, you should use an up-to-date antivirus product to help protect your computer from other malicious software.

The publisher (Microsoft) releases new updates of the tool every second Tuesday of each month; which means the application is always updated at least once every month to keep it up with latest security threats.

Any downside?

May not really be as effective as some other tools I have seen; but it is not a bad program all the same.
