    What are differences between MS MSRT and MSERT?


    I have usually downloaded and run MS Malicious Software Removal Tool each month per Update directions. Recently I found out about MS Safety Scanner (msert.exe), and read somewhere that it is superior to MSRT, and should be used instead.

    Can anyone shed any light on this pair of seemingly similar tools, and make recommendations?

    The Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) is quite a useless and antiquated tool...

    It might show during scanning any number of "infected" files but at the end of the scanning come to the conclusion that they were not infected. The result counts...

    Suggestion to read these older threads (especially the posts of Rob Koch and quietman and GreginMich) which are explaining a bit about the "usefulness" of the MSRT...

    I, personally, never even download/use it...

  3. MSRT Download link is Broken

    Thanks for the link. I'm still looking for a static link where i can download the latest MSRT package.. It would be bit difficult for layman to go through the whole list and download.. I hope MS will fix those broken links soon.
