Microsoft Launches New Anti-Malware Tool as Part of Patch Tuesday Rollout

The company has released an improved version of its Malicious Software Removal Tool

The December 2013 Patch Tuesday rollout has officially started in the Redmond campus with a new version of the Malicious Software Removal Tool, which now comes with improved scanning and detection capabilities.

Microsoft is yet to provide some release notes for the new Malicious Software Removal Tool 5.7, but given the fact that it’s included in the Patch Tuesday release cycle, it most likely comes with improvements regarding the forms of malware it can detect.

Keep in mind, however, that this isn’t a security app that’s supposed to protect your computer all the time, as it was only designed to help users get rid of specific malware infections.

Of course, it offers support for all Windows versions currently on the market, so you can download Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool 5.7 even if you’ve already installed Windows 8.1 on your desktop computer.
