Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830) Released
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 1/11/2005 11:18:00 PM.

The Microsoft Antiviral Tool discussed here at [G3]-Technews and other Tech Sites has been Released.

This tool will help to remove specific, prevalent malicious software from infected systems. Because computers can appear to function normally when infected, Microsoft advises you to run this tool even if your computer seems to be fine. In addition to using this tool, you should use an up-to-date antivirus product to help protect your computer from other malicious software. For more information, see Protect Your PC.

A new version of this tool is released on the second Tuesday of every month. These new versions will be available from the Microsoft Download Center—this page—as well as from Windows Update / Automatic Updates. An online version of the tool is also available. It is recommended that Windows XP users use Windows Update / Automatic Updates to download the tool. If you are using any other version of Windows for which this tool is supported, please download the tool from this page or run the online version of the tool at least once a month to ensure that you are using the latest version of this software.

After the tool has been executed and the End-User License Agreement (EULA) is accepted, the tool automatically checks for infection by specific, prevalent malicious software and removes any found. When the detection / removal process is complete, the tool displays a message describing the outcome of the execution—including what malicious software, if any, was detected and removed. The tool can be safely deleted after it has run. Also, the tool creates a log file named mrt.log in the
%WINDIR%debug folder.

The user must be an administrator to run this tool. This tool will not run on any version of Windows 98, Windows ME, or Windows NT 4.0.

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article, KB 890830, will be updated with information for each monthly release so that the number of the relevant article remains the same. The name of the file will be changed to reflect the tool version. For example, the file name could be Windows-kb890830-enu-feb05.exe.

Currently the viruses scanned are: -
