    Windows 10 Malicious Software Removal Tool Problem


    Hello-
    I just downloaded and ran this W10 program. It ran for over two hours and during the run indicated there were 12 infected files. At the end, it indicated NO infected files. Can anyone tell me why this is?
    Thanks,
    Keith

    Sounds as though it found 12 things and cleaned them.

    You might want to do a full scan with your AV product.

    You can also do a full scan Malicious Software Removal Tool to double check the results
