    Malicious Software Removal Tool

    My automatic download of Microsoft updates occurs on a regular basis. I usually install most updates including Malicious Software Removal Tool. However I have never been able to find it to run it. I'm sure that it is somewhere but I can't seem to find it. Where should I look?

    This tool automatically runs when downloaded. To run manually type MRT in search box. It can be downloaded from MS here.

    In this instance, no news is good news (though it would have been nice for it to give a quick message saying something like, "MRT inspected your hard disk and did not find anything untoward"...
