Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool is an application designed by Microsoft for users who face different computer infections and need to get rid of them. The utility is able to discover and successfully remove multiple virus types that are usually undetected by antivirus apps. However, in a matter of minutes, this application is able to display a list of results that contains all the infected files, along with their paths.
Users can work with this app easily as its interface is rather simple. This way, they have access to the scanning function within a couple of clicks and they can choose between a full system scan or just a partition scan. In a matter of minutes, the results list is compiled and users can proceed with the disinfection process. Some files cannot be treated, though, and there is the possibility to move them into quarantine. This way, the infection cannot spread anymore.
