    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) 5.110 helps remove malicious software from computers running Windows11, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008.

    Microsoft generally releases MSRT monthly as part of Windows Update or as the standalone tool. Use this tool to find and remove specific prevalent threats and reverse the changes they have made (see covered threats). For comprehensive malware detection and removal, consider using Microsoft Safety Scanner.

    This article contains information about how the tool differs from an antivirus or antimalware product, how you can download and run the tool, what happens when the tool finds malware, and tool release information. It also includes information for the administrators and advanced users, including information about supported command-line switches.

    Note In compliance with the Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy, MSRT is no longer supported on Windows Vista and older platforms. For more information, go to Microsoft Support Lifecycle.

    Thank you Brink. It only does scan. Not installing the update itself.

    Installing the update culminates in opening the scanning dialog. The update is complete at that point so you can escape.
    That is, if you want to have to keep updating this worthless piece of software. Defender does not need it to remove malware.
