    MSERT

    Hi Sam,

    I am Dave, I will help you with this.

    Where did you see an indication that MSERT found infected files, was that while the scan was running, and at the end of the scan did it indicate it found malware or did it indicate nothing was found?

    MSERT reruns keep showing infected files

    Hi, I am Dave, I will help you with this.

    MSERT is very different from other anti-virus software, when it is scanning, it marks files that may contain malware, then at the end of the scan, those files are compared to the malware database and removed from the list if they are clean, and if that indicates no problem at the end of the scan, rest assured your PC is free from malware, there is nothing further you need to do..

    MSERT reruns keep showing infected files

    Hello!

    I ran MSERT the first time and it showed 7 infected files, but at the end only one was listed as removed (VirTool:Win32/DefenderTamperingRestore).

    I ran the MSERT twice after that (restarted my laptop after every run) and infected files number went up to 11 but it said no virus or spyware was detected. How could the infected file number increase but nothing is removed or quarantined? is there another method to scan for malware? I also turned on the Virus Threat Protection in my account and have a Virus Protection software that never detected the malware prior to the MSERT scan. how can i make sure my system is cleaned from malware?

    thanks!

This week it detected two backdoors: PHP/Dirtelti.MTF and PHP/Dirtelti:MTG. The explanations I've found for these is vague at best. There's no indication with the tool which files were...
