Malicious Software Removal Tool

The Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool checks computers running Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 for infections by specific, prevalent malicious software—including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom—and helps remove any infection found. When the detection and removal process is complete, the tool displays a report describing the outcome, including which, if any, malicious software was detected and removed.

Microsoft releases an updated version of this tool on the second Tuesday of each month, and as needed to respond to security incidents. The tool is available from Microsoft Update, Windows Update and the Microsoft Download Center.

Note The version of the tool delivered by Microsoft Update and Windows Update runs in the background and then reports if an infection is found. If you would like to run this tool more than once a month, use the version on this Web page or install the version that is available in the Download Center.

Because computers can appear to function normally when infected, Microsoft advises you to run this tool even if your computer seems to be fine. You should also use up-to-date antivirus software to help protect your computer from other malicious software.

To download the latest version of this tool, please visit the Microsoft Download Center.

You can also perform an online scan of your computer using the Windows Live OneCare safety scanner.

Recommend Search-and-destroy Antispyware to anyone.
I would like to recommend Search-and-destroy Antispyware to anyone that wants a good scan for their computer. I tired many other scanners in the past but so far I like this one the best. It’s cheaper than many of the others and it cost less. What more can you ask for? The antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy found at http://www.Search-and-destroy.com is a great option whether you use your computer for work or personal use. It will keep it clear and clean of antispyware that bogs down your PC and causes it to be sluggish and annoying.
