About Microsoft Software Removal Tool –
The Malicious Software Removal Tool always sends information to Microsoft if it detects malicious software or finds an error. The specific information that is sent to Microsoft consists of the following items:
- The name of the malicious software that is detected
- The result of malicious software removal
- The operating system version
- The operating system locale
- The processor architecture
- The version number of the tool
- An indicator that notes whether the tool is being run by Microsoft Update, Windows Update, Automatic Updates, the Download Center, or from the website
- An anonymous GUID
- A cryptographic one-way hash (MD5) of the path and file name of each malicious software file that is removed from the computer
The Malicious Software Removal Tool is released on the second Tuesday of every month. Each release of the tool helps detect and remove current, prevalent malicious software. This malicious software includes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses.
When you download the tool from Microsoft Update or from Automatic Updates, and no malicious software is detected on the computer, the tool will run in quiet mode next time. If malicious software is detected on the computer, the next time that an administrator logs on to the computer, a balloon will appear in the notification area to notify you of the detection.
