(U) Microsoft's new Security Tool launched

Microsoft has released another FREE security tool that will scan and clean your system from known viruses, spyware, and other malicious software and other bad stuff. 'Microsoft Safety Scanner' is a self expiring tool that you run and it is magically removed/disabled by Microsoft after 10 days. Just visit the URL below,select 32bit or 64bit and download the 70Meg payload and launch. It runs just like the MSRT tool so just select Quick, Full or Custom and away you go.

It expires so that you keep getting the latest from Microsoft. look for MS to add this to their FREE Windows Security Essentials Anti-Virus tool and replace The Microsoft Malware Removal Tool (MSRT) in the near future.

Do I need to say IF the tool finds anything, Format your computer and reinstall your Operating System and then change all your Internet passwords to be 100% sure you are clean and safe and follow my Top Ten recommendations from my 'Dont Click on That!!!' presentation you can find on my website HERE:
