Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Removal Tool is a small-sized program that does not require installation when it comes to removing fake Microsoft Security Essentials alerts that are caused by a virus.

The tool does not include a configuration set, making it suitable for users of all levels of experience, even rookies.

Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the executable file somewhere on the hard disk and run it.

Otherwise, you may copy Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Removal Tool to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine with minimum effort.

An important aspect to take into account is that portable utilities do not add new entries to the Windows registry, as it commonly happens with installation. Furthermore, they do not usually add extra files to the HDD.

The interface is represented by an uncomplicated window that puts only two buttons at user's disposal, for exiting the tool and initializing the scanning procedure, respectively.

User assistance is not necessary. Virus removal is automatically performed on detection. However, a computer reboot is recommended for carrying out the task. Other than this, there are no additional features available.

The application finishes the job quickly while using a minimal amount of CPU and memory. It does not hog system resources, nor interrupt normal user activity. We have not come across any problems throughout our evaluation, as the tool did not hang or crash. All in all, Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Removal Tool serves its purpose.
