? on new malicious software removal tool

Recommended Posts


There is a new high priority update on the windows update site for xp called malicious software removal tool which will be updated the second tuesday of each month, and which checks for malicious software (virus, ect).

Is this really necessary to download if you have norton 2004 and a spyware remover. Will this interfere with your antivirus software and is this a automatic scan or can you iniate this scan manually

It doesn't interfere with anything. It's just a removal tool that scans your hard drive for several worms and removes them if found. Norton should catch any of these worms, but running the tool doesn't hurt anyway. And until you do, it will remain at Windows Update.
