Hi all, my first post in here, so hello to everyone.

Could anybody be able to tell me how to completely remove Windows malicious software removal tool as it keeps coming up every time I turn on the laptop.
I have tried all usual channels like add/remove etc but can't see it anywhere. Could someone shed some light, many thanks :smile:

Re: Removal of 'Malicious software removal tool'

Have you let the MRT finish? The MRT is an On Demand anti virus scanneer with a very limited impact on the PC or
resources. there are NO reasons to remove it.

The utility is...
%windir%\system32\MRT.exe

Command line switches...

/? or /HELP = displays the command line switches
/Q = quiet
/N = detect only
/F = force extended scan
/F:Y = force extended scan and automatically clean infected files

If you really want to remove it browse to C:\Windows\System32 and delete MRT.exe

Re: Removal of 'Malicious software removal tool'

It's only coming up when I turn the computer on as it is asking for the permission to unblock the program. Does it just run unintrusively in the background then? Should I create an exception for this program in windows firewall and how come windows doesn't recognise one of its own programs?

Thanks for the reply
