    The Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) is not "built into Windows 10".

    "Microsoft generally delivers MSRT with Windows Update the second Tuesday of the month. The standalone version available on this* page is delivered at the same time.
    "

    *See here:

    Is the malicious software removal tool no longer available?

    I've been going to the Download from Official Microsoft Download Center web page to download the tool for a while, but several weeks ago, the contents of that page changed and the tool was no longer listed there.

    Is the malicious software removal tool no longer available for download?
